1 Proteus 1 year ago So we're on the same page(s), I'm comparing the specs of: G6609TFM, G6609TG, and G6620TFM. I believe all three guitars, two Broadkasters and one Nashville (comprising 5 different colors, about which more in a mo), are 16" x 1.75" all-maple doublecuts with spruce centerblocks, 24.6" scale, ebony fretboards with Neoclassic markers and medium jumbo frets, tension-bar string-through Bigsbys, locking Gotoh tuners and stud-mounted AdjustaMatic bridges.Differences? All I can find is that the Broadkasters have Full'Tron pickups and the Nashville has Filter'Trons; the TFM Broadkasters have chrome/nickel hardware, and the others have gold.So the only functional difference is in pickups.6609TFM seems to denote "Broadkaster, Tremolo, Flame Maple." That model number is available in two colors, the lovely burgundy stain (though the website pic does it no justice) and the more traditional dark cherry stain. Both of these have nickel hardware.6609TG may mean "Broadkaster, Gold (hardware)". Also available in two solid colors (under which, yeah, flame in the maple would be wasted), Cadillac green and vintage white - both with gold hardware.6620TFM is apparently "Nashville, Tremolo, Flame Maple"...and it just comes in screamin' flamed Gretsch orange. So OK, is that it? Are those the similarities and differences?I guess it's a little confusing. Broadkaster is presented as the new premium center-block series - but we still have centerblocks in other lines as well. So Broadkaster gets this new "6609" designation......and maybe the "66" in "6620" (for the centerblock Nashville doublecut) represents its 16"-centerblocked cousinship with the Broadkaster, and the "20" is what ties it to the Nashville line.But, other than pickups, they're the same guitar, no?The 6120DC was always a kind of odd duck in the line, and I guess this 6620 is meant to continue the heritage of a thinline doublecut "6120," while transitioning "Broadkaster" to mean "centerblock." (Which is what it means now, apparently, along with "Broad'Tron," at least for the moment - as the Broadkaster line includes not only the 16" doublecuts, but 14" Jr singlecuts.)But why do they want to confuse me? Or am I missing something else?Also...again with the occasional Gretsch nomenclatural weirdness of sometimes coming up with a new model number for a guitar that's different only in finish options - in this case, distinguishing between "flame maple" and "gold-hardware" but solid-color Broadkasters... And then there are two color choices among each of those pairs of fraternal twins.So don't we really just have one new guitar here - a 16" doublecut centerblock thinline at 24.6" scale? (With two different pickup options ... but we frequently get different pickups on guitars within a single model line.)I don't object to any of this model-number miasma - I'm just trying to be sure I know what the varying specs are across these three listings. I might want one. Also, I can't find anywhere in the specifications where body width is specifically specified. (And aren't specifications specifically for specificity?) Specifically, I'd like to verify that Broadkasters are 16" guitars...Because if they're 17", seems like they have more in common with Gents than with the 6120 doublecut/6620 (which in its doublecutness has as much in common with Gents as in its 16"-ness it shares genes with the 6120).
