to the Streamliner’s sound is twofold—the Broad’Tron™ BT-2S humbucking pickup
and the spruce center block. Designed specifically for the Streamliner
Collection, the high-output Broad’Tron pickup spawns improved definition with
tighter bass response for robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange. A
lightweight spruce center block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the
top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance on
modern stages. The Streamliner’s sonic power is harnessed and shaped by the
traditional control layout—neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master
tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching. Add some
shimmer and expression to your playing with the Bigsby®-licensed B50 vibrato
tailpiece, while the anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and synthetic bone nut
grant astounding tuning stability and accurate, slip-free intonation.

and the audience while standing out from the pack.
