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 Dark Cherry Stain and Bourbon 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.

Premium features include:
* Tiger flame maple top and body with lightweight chambered spruce center block
* All-new U.S.-made Full'TronTM pickups
* Lower neck set for greater playing comfort
* Studded Adjusto-Matic bridge for pinpoint intonation
* Treble bleed circuit, "no-load" tone control, "Squeezebox" PIO capacitors
* Bigsby B7CP String-Thru vibrato tailpiece
* Locking tuners
