A Gretsch that's crafted for full-spectrum sound at high volume.

Gretsch’s time-honored Broadkaster name now adorns the flagship guitars of its center block lineup. Crafted for full-spectrum sound at high volume, Gretsch’s G6659T Players Edition Broadkaster Jr. comes 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, all with a matching headstock and gleaming gold hardware. The Gretsch G6659T also features two new U.S.-made Full’Tron pickups to deliver full-spectrum sonic range with a growl unlike any other pickup. The new pickups are an 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. All finishes of the G6659T feature nickel hardware.
