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 with String-Thru Bigsby and Gold Hardware features a double-cutaway body. Gretsch also enlisted acclaimed pickup designer Tim Shaw to create new U.S.- made Full’Tron pickups, a pair of which delivers full-spectrum sonic range with distinctive snarl, in addition to classic Gretsch chime, balance and brilliance with slightly more pronounced mid concentration that brings even more tonal muscle to full-volume playing with overdrive and distortion.
