What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gretsch G6659TG Players Edition Broadkaster Jr. with Center Block, Single-Cut, Bigsby, Gold Hardware and USA Full'tron Pickups is a fantastic Junior Archtop Semi-hollow body Guitar model by Gretsch.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Gretsch G6659TG Broadkaster Jr Guitar's stunning gold hardware, comfortable Junior Broadkaster body shape, 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.
For big sound in a small package, the G6659TG Players Edition Broadkaster® Jr. Center Block with Bigsby® and Gold Hardware features a slightly smaller single-cutaway body for greater comfort, tonal focus and feedback resistance, all with a matching headstock and gleaming gold hardware.
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.
