Gretsch G6659TFM Players Edition Broadkaster Jr. with Bigsby

Gretsch

Big sound in a small package.

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 G6659TFM Players Edition Broadkaster Jr. Center Block Single-Cut with String-Thru Bigsby and Flame Maple features a slightly smaller single-cutaway body for greater comfort, tonal focus and feedback resistance, all in stunning tiger flame maple with a matching headstock.

Two new U.S.- made Full’Tron pickups—created in conjunction with acclaimed pickup designer Tim Shaw— 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. Includes hardshell case.
