Another new Gretsch designed to deliver at high volume without compromising on character… does this compact and lamey semi sound as good as it looks?

For many years, if you wanted a slice of the Gretsch sound and aesthetic, then your options were limited to large, full-hollow archtops or compact single-or double-cut Jets. Happily, in recent times, the company has provided a variety of ‘best of both worlds’ solutions in the form of scaled-down Jr models and guitars equipped with feedback reducing, and sustain enhancing, centre-blocks.

Part of the Players Edition range designed with the modern working professional in mind, the G6659TFM Broadkaster Jr’s 14-inch body has a slim, 335-like depth of 44mm and is built around a spruce centreblock that runs its entire length. Spruce is a light wood, so it’s able to provide extra sustain and feedback resistance without making the guitar restrictively heavy.
