What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gretsch G6609TFM Players Edition Broadkaster with Center Block, Double-Cut, Bigsby, Flame Maple Top and USA Full'Tron Pickups is a fantastic Archtop Semi-hollow body Guitar model by Gretsch.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Gretsch G6609TFM Broadkaster Guitar's gorgeous semi-hollow Tiger flame maple body, comfortable U-shaped neck, Bigsby tremolo, Gotoh locking machine heads and the powerful USA Full'tron Humbucker pickups.
What Gretsch has to say:
Gretsch’s time-honoured “Broadkaster” name now adorns the flagship guitars of its centre block lineup, crafted for full-spectrum sound at high volume with powerful new pickups and a chambered spruce centre block that enhances body resonance for more organic tone and comfortably lighter weight.
Built to perform, the G6609TFM Players Edition Broadkaster® Center Block Double-Cut with String-Thru Bigsby® and Flame Maple features a stunning tiger flame maple body with a matching headstock in handsome Dark Cherry Stain and Bourbon Stain finishes.
Two new U.S.-made Full’Tron™ pickups 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.
