    That sounds typical of Guitar Center. Especially drives me nuts when it’s just the stereo not even someone trying out gear.

    I had found this streamliner one as well, was curious about it, but then I found the 2015/16 model in the electromatic lineup. It's dreamy! Feels much more substantial. Basically it falls inline with the main differences between the Streamliner and Electromatic lines, the obvious ones being hardware/pickups.

    It's still on GC's website. Thinking about grabbing one when they show up in the used section.

    They were actually fire-saling them a few months ago for $399 a copy (!!!!). I bought one just 'cuz with the intent to throw some $$$ at it in upgrades.

    I'm really impressed with fit and finish to be honest. These Indonesian guitars are really well put togethr (at least the ones I have seen). The only complaints I had are with the pickups... Not really "Gretsch-y" sounding. Along with new pickups and some "gretschy" bits (knobs, switches, strap pins, etc.), here's what I ended up with:

    Seymour Phat Cat in the neck, TV-Jones T-Armond in the middle, Seymour Psyclone in the bridge. All-in was $800 - $900?

    I even found somewhere to put my extra broad-trons... they sound MUCH BETTER in a solid-body!
