Full-spectrum sounds and impressive looks.
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 G6609TFM Players Edition Broadkaster Center Block with String-Thru Bigsby and Flame Maple features a stunning tiger flame maple double-cutaway body with a matching headstock in handsome Stain finishes.
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.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6609TFM Players Edition Broadkaster Center Block with String-Thru Bigsby and Flame Maple:
This is built like a fine violin.Great attention to detail.Very high quality throughout.The pedigree is obvious and the Japanese build quality is superb.Even the hardshell case is firstrate great quality. My only issue is the string's would not have been my choice and the bridge height needed to be tweaked. After seeing, holding and playing this instrument you can tell it is NOT an assembly line guitar but a hand-crafted instrument meant to last a lifetime.
