    I just bought a used G2420 for $325. I cannot believe the value for the money. The closest I've ever come to this value is the Squier Classic Vibe series.

    I've had many, many guitars - including a 6128 Duo Jet and a Country Gentlemen. Great guitars, but not for the money.

    The G2420 sounds incredible for the money spent. Yeah, so the switches and knobs are cheaper, I don't care.

    There's an easy fix for those switches and knobs:

    Welcome to G-T. I am happy to hear that you are enjoying your G2420. I have my eye on a Village Amber G2420 - it is stunning.

    I have to agree! I just sold a Sparkle Jet and picked up the Streamliner and love it! Changed the Tuners (Grover Locking) and added a Gretsch Bigsby that I had laying around. Paid about the same price as Jetsoldtears for mine. I'm really a Hollowbody Guy...

    I used to think I'd never buy a "cheap" Streamliner but just bought my first one, a 2622 P90 and I'm absolutely in love with it. I look at my 6119 Rosewood Tenny and wonder if it is really worth 6 times more.
