    Bought this three days ago. First Gretsch, first P90.

    Gretch G2215-P90 Streamliner Junior Jet Club.

    Made in Indonesia. Straight off the rack, intonation spot on at 12th fret, relief perfect. Adjusted the nut on the three bottom strings. Lowered the action and checked frets, all good no buzzing, although I'll put some 9's on it and check again. Tuners seem good, hasn't gone out of tune in three days. Finish is faultless.

    P90 sounds great as does the broadtron. Slight volume difference when switching between the two. Very simple tone and volume controls and three way swithch.

    I'm loving this thing. Definitely this week's No. 1

    Edit: Colour is Metallic Mint. First and last pics are more representative.

    I love everything about that model except that I've never seen one in a nearby store. Great combo of style and function. Enjoy!

    I really love the look of that guitar. Simple, clean, beautiful. Positioning of the V and T knobs seems a little odd, but maybe it's a Gretsch thing. Good to hear it sounds good. Now I want to check one out. Congrats!

    Looks nice !

    How would you describe the neck profile ? Is it chunky ?

    Btw, found this on Gretch Talk
