GRETSCH G6609TG PLAYERS EDITION BROADKASTER® CENTER BLOCK DOUBLE-CUT WITH STRING-THRU BIGSBY® AND GOLD HARDWARE

This great guitar just came into our store as a trade in. It was manufactured on 11/20/2020 and we originally sold it to the person who traded it in to us in July of 2021. The person who traded it in never used it much so now we have it again. It is in near perfect shape and it has all the paperwork and case candy and while it was not played for gigging it does have some light studio use and a couple minor modifications. Forst, The bridge pickup was replaced with a TV Jones pickup, which we consider an upgrade. Second, the previous owner painted all the knobs black, which we consider a downgrade. However, I checked with Gretsch and they do have the knobs in stock and if the black knobs are a dealbreaker, I will order new knobs for the new owner. The serial number on this great guitar is JT20093604 and it weighs in at 8 pounds, 2.51 ounces. The photos in this ad are actual photos of the one you will get. Here is your chance to get a great guitar with an upgraded pickup for way under the $2999.99 that the new ones sell for. Here are the factory specs on this great guitar:

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 G6609TG Players Edition Broadkaster® Center Block Double-Cut with String-Thru Bigsby® and Gold Hardware features a double-cutaway body in handsome Cadillac Green and Vintage White finishes, both with gleaming gold hardware. These models feature the all-new U.S.-made Full’Tron™ pickups that deliver full-spectrum sonic range with distinctive snarl, in addition to classic Gretsch chime, balance and brilliance with slightly more pronounced mid concentration that brings even more tonal muscle to full-volume playing with overdrive and distortion.
