Modern Gretsch Guitars

Streamliner pickups


Is it safe to say the Streamliner pickups are more Gibson sounding? They are less bright sounding than my 6120 TV Jones pickups. I like the Stremliner pickup sound as it offers an alternative when playing. What do you guys think of the Streamliner pups?


I have a Streamliner Jr and agree that they they are more Gibson sounding. I think that was the intent to lure Gibson players to Gretsch. That said, the pickups in my guitar were okay but have since been switched to TVJs and there’s no looking back.
