Comments The Gretsch 6190 is a very interesting instrument. Produced from 1951 as the Electromatic, it became the Streamliner in 1955 to 1959. It’s basically a 6120 with one pickup, aiming at the entry market. In 1957, that meant a deArmond DynaSonic, G-cutout tailpiece, and open tuners. It has bound top, back, neck, headstock, and F-holes. This one is in excellent condition and plays quite well.
