I bought this at Sam Ash after trading in my Les Paul 2016 50's Tribute which I never fell in love with. By the way Sam Ash gave a great trade in value. Anyway I had not heard of the Streamliner series but when I saw this in Torino Green I had to check it out. It sounds and plays so sweet. Great tone through the amp and even sounds great unplugged. But my favorite thing about this Gretsch is how it feels. I play a lot of rhythm with bar chords and it plays like a butter. SO smooth. My left hand never cramps up like it did on the Les Paul. And even bar chords on the 12th fret sound clean because of the great neck and setup. I have my lifetime guitar. Will never get rid of it.
