    Just got my first "real" Gretsch (briefly owned a Jim Dandy acoustic parlor...), a Streamliner G2655T. I love it!!! I've been more of a Fender gal (esp. the tele), but I just love this Gretsch. Wow. Where has this been all my life?

    PS it's called "walnut" finish, but it sure looks like cherry red translucent to me...

    Welcome, and congrats! Those Streamliner guitars are fantastic. I'm also a big fan of the Walnut finish, which I think looks very classy.

    Enjoy!

    Not sure why, but I was kind of surprised myself to find lots of fellow fans of Tele & Gretsch here. Streamliner is a good gateway Gretsch. Heck any Gretsch is a gateway to another Gretsch. Gretsch is distributed by Fender, not sure of the details of the actual business relationship, but Gretsch is kind of under the Fender umbrella now.

    PS - Do you happen to have a Vox amp too?

    Yes, Welcome!
    I'm really glad to see more women joining the ranks and getting recognition as excellent guitar players!

    I like your avatar, at first I didn't notice the glasses peeking from behind the guitar.

    I love the Walnut Stain too, it looks fantastic on my G2622 also.

    When it's time to consider your next, check out the Gretsch Jets.

    No Vox amp! Main amp is Roland Blues Cube, which I love.

    The spots in the picture are reflections from my shiny guitar -- a coffee cup and marigolds! :)

    Welcome! I sold my Tele to get my 2662. I did some mods to suit my tastes and have no pans to let it go. Now...... I wouldn't mind that having a Tele again. Hmmmm

    Yeah. The last time I was without a tele, I felt a void in my life. I will never be tele-less again if I can help it!

    I have the twin to your guitar. I also have a Red Sparkle G5420T and I actually play my 2655 more than the big guy. I did put on a set of art deco Wilkinson Tuners, a tuning stablizer and roller bridge but other than that it is completely stock. I take that back. I got a set of Chrome Gretsch knobs that really dresses it up. I really like the reddish walnut finish as well. I have a good friend with a G5422TG in Walnut and I think it is about as beautiful a guitar as I have ever seen.
