Full-spectrum sonic range with a growl like no other.
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 G6609 Players Edition Broadkaster Center Block with V-Stoptail features a double-cutaway body 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. The studded Adjusto-Matic bridge and Gretsch "V" stoptail deliver even greater sustain and tonal focus. Includes hardshell case.
