The Gretsch G6659TG Broadkaster Jr. Singlecut is a classy, elegant addition to the Players Edition family of instruments. Made to the highest standards, this guitar is a stunning example of Gretsch's heritage, embracing a number of signature features that make a Gretsch, a Gretsch!

Sporting a pair of Full’Tron pickups for those jangly, crystal clear tones, the G6659TG Broadkaster Jr also features a Bigsby B7GP String-Thru tailpiece that ensures only the smoothest of warbles. With all-gold hardware and a Vintage White finish, this gorgeous instrument will inspire you to pick it up and play for hours on end.

Construction

Although Gretsch produce a number of solid-body models, they are perhaps more renowned for their hollow and semi-hollow instruments. The G6659TG Players Edition Broadkaster Jr. is one of the latter, with a hollow Maple body that delivers bright and vibrant tones, providing plenty of projection even when unplugged. Featuring a chambered spruce center block to add some extra rigidity to the body construction, this also serves an important tonal purpose, enhancing the body's resonance for a more organic tone.

Although a lot of vintage appointments remain intact, the G6659TG has a smaller single-cutaway body compared to its more traditional counterparts. This gives the instrument a more focused mid-range, not to mention greater playing comfort and reduced feedback.

The G6659TG's neck features a standard "U" profile, feeling substantial in the left hand for fretting open chords with ease. Adorned with a gorgeous Ebony fretboard, this sleek material offers a smooth feel and a snappy quality, giving an immediate response to notes. With the Aged Pearloid Neo-Classic Thumbnail fret inlays, these elegant markers can easily help you to identify where you are at all areas of the neck.

Electronics & Hardware

Installed with dual U.S.-made Full’Trons, these pickups deliver a full-sounding chime with a wide sonic range. Having a higher output than you'd expect, these versatile pickups can handle overdrive and distortion beautifully, making it an ideal rock guitar.

The Bigsby® B7GP String-Thru tailpiece offers that old-school feel and aesthetic, with great tuning stability thanks to the high-quality set of Gotoh locking tuners. A Graph Tech TUSQ nut further improves the tuning stability, with a self-lubricating design that prevent strings from sticking when performing string bends or tremolo warbles.
