I've just played at Viva Las Vegas with my new G6659T-DCHFM (dark cherry, flame maple) and I know this will set the fox loose in the chicken house but after playing this instrument for only one gig I'm naming it THE guitar of 2017. Joe Carducci from Gretsch delivered the Broadkaster and helped me with the set up. I heard it plugged in for the first time when we were getting ready to play last night. I know it has new design pickups and the neck angle is set further back but what I wasn't ready for was the jaw dropping response from this guitar. It just wants to rock! If a Chet is a Cadillac this baby is a Corvette! I'm naming it Guitar of 2017 because thay have delivered a semi that feels and plays like a solid body yet retains all the classic Gretsch character. Truly unique!
