Maple Body with Spruce Center Block

The John Gourley Broadkaster features a double cutaway arched maple body with a chambered spruce center block under the hood. Offering lightweight comfort and excellent feedback rejection, the spruce center block provides an open and airy sound while still retaining clarity, snap, and attack.

USA Full’Tron Pickups

In addition to classic Gretsch chime, balance, and brilliance, the U.S.-made Full'Tron™ pickups were designed by the famed Tim Shaw to deliver full-spectrum sonic range with a distinctive snarl, offering a slightly more pronounced mid concentration that brings even more tonal muscle to full-volume playing with overdrive and distortion.

Exclusive artwork by Cleon Peterson

In addition to the mesmerizing Iridescent Black metallic finish and silver sparkle binding, the John Gourley Broadkaster features exclusive artwork by renowned artist Cleon Peterson. From the “cloud” fingerboard inlays to the bespoke truss rod cover and metal head badge, to the graphic on the pickguard, Cleon’s artistic touches add a unique and distinctive aesthetic vibe that cannot be found on any other guitar.
