G6659T Players Edition Broadkaster® Jr. Center Block Single-Cut with String-Thru Bigsby®
Gretsch's time-honored "Broadkaster" name now adorns the flagship guitars of its center block lineup, crafted for full-spectrum sound at high volume with powerful new pickups and a chambered spruce center block that enhances body resonance for more organic tone and comfortably lighter weight.
For big sound in a small package, the G6659T Players Edition Broadkaster® Jr. Center Block with Bigsby® features a slightly smaller single-cutaway body for greater comfort, tonal focus and feedback resistance. Two new U.S.-made Full'Tron™ pickups deliver full-spectrum sonic range with a growl unlike any other pickup, in addition to classic Gretsch® chime, balance and brilliance with a dash of extra-mid concentration for powering through overdriven and distorted passages at full volume.
The G6659T is available in three fashionable Gretsch finishes — Round-Up Orange with matching headcap and tortoise pickguard, Two-Tone Ivory/Walnut Stain with tortoise pickguard and Walnut Stain headcap, or Two-Tone Smoke Green with Smoke Green pickguard and headcap. All finishes feature nickel hardware.
