Gretsch G6659TG Players Edition Broadkaster Jr. Center Block Single-Cut, Cadillac Green
Gretsch G6659TG Players Edition Broadkaster Jr. Centre Block Single-Cut, Cadillac Green
With its 14" tiger flame maple Broadkaster body style, Gretsch's G6659TG Players Edition Broadkaster Jr. joins their impressive range of centre block guitars.
Classic looks and a unique tone are just two of many indisputable Gretsch qualities, and having more than its fair share of both, this guitar will certainly not disappoint. The chambered spruce centre block not only strengthens the guitar, but also enhances sustain and definition, whilst also limiting the likelihood of feedback at louder volumes - allowing its two Full'Tron humbucking pickups (designed with pickup legend Tim Shaw) to fully release every bit of that glorious Gretsch juice; there's plenty of classic Gretsch chime here, with balanced lows, and a pronounced mid response that's the perfect punch for overdriven amps. Add in a treble bleed circuit, no-load tone control electronics for additional sonic clarity, a lower-set neck for increased playing comfort, and the essential Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, and it becomes obvious that this Players Edition Broadkaster is ready to astound whether on stage, at home, or in the studio.
What Gretsch say:
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.
Built to perform, the G6609TG Players Edition Broadkaster® Center Block Double-Cut with String-Thru Bigsby® and Flame Maple features a stunning Cadillac Green with a matching headstock. 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 G6659TG is available in a pair of classic Gretsch finishes — Cadillac Green or Vintage White, and decked out with a matching headstock, tortoise pickguard and gleaming gold hardware.
