Sounds great with that great Gretsch twang, and a center block to help offset feedback. Very comfortable instrument with the body only slightly bigger than a traditional LP shape.

Here's what Gretsch has to say:

A Smaller Broadkaster

Gretsch's smaller 14" maple Broadkaster body style joins the center block series of guitars, with the G6659T Broadkaster Jr. semi-hollowbody electric guitar. The chambered spruce center block enhances sustain and note definition, while also fighting resonant feedback onstage. But the stars of the show are a pair of Full'Tron humbucking pickups — designed with pickup legend Tim Shaw — delivering pronounced midrange muscle. Factor in the treble bleed circuit and no-load tone control for sonic clarity, and it's clear the Gretsch G6659T Players Edition Broadkaster Center Block guitar is fully equipped for stage and studio.

Long spruce center block enhances your sound

You get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Gretsch G6659T, thanks to its long spruce center block. Running the full length of the body, this chambered center block allows the otherwise hollow body to resist resonant-frequency feedback. This means you can rock out louder with more gain, without your amplifier squealing out of control. Spruce is a snappy tonewood too, and since the center block connects with the bridge, the note definition and clarity on the G6659T are amazing.

Dual Full'Tron pickups for classic Gretsch tone with attitude

To create the Full'Tron pickups found in the G6659T, Gretsch worked with legendary pickup designer Tim Shaw. These Full'Tron pickups feature pronounced midrange response that gives your tone impressive girth — and the extra punch you're looking for when playing overdriven or distorted amps. Of course, you'll have plenty of that classic Gretsch chime up high, plus well-balanced lows as well.

Lower-set neck for a more comfortable feel

We've played a lot of guitars here at Sweetwater, and we know that not all players are comfortable with the "traditional" Gretsch feel. Gretsch knows this too, which is why they've set the neck lower on the G6659T for greater playing comfort. If some Gretsch semi-hollowbody guitars feel cumbersome to you, get your hands on the G6659T — it was made just for you.
