Guitarist Chris Rocha is known best for his worship music, and his new signature model, Gretsch Electromatic Chris Rocha Broadkaster Jr Center Block, was inspired to cover all he requires from a guitar. Rocha has earned many accolades as a guitarist and producer, including two Dove Awards and contributions to Grammy Award-winning albums.

This Broadkaster Junior is finished in a luscious Vintage White finish with gold sparkle edge binding and matching gold hardware throughout. I love the look of this guitar, and the price point of $1299.99 seems like a steal for such a great-looking guitar. Let’s take a closer look at some of the key specifications of the model.

Single-Cutaway

It is based on a classic 14-inch Single-Cutaway arched maple body with a chambered spruce center block. This gives the guitar a lightweight feel, excellent feedback resistance, and some great tones. Then, for ease of playing, it comes with a slim “U”-shaped maple neck and a 12-inch radius rosewood fretboard adorned with 22 medium jumbo frets and pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays.

Verdict

It is a lot of guitar for the money, and I think Gretsch has hit a home run with this limited-edition signature guitar. All that gold hardware pops nicely on the Vintage White finish, and I think it looks and sounds very nice. I’ve been a big fan of these limited-edition Gretsch models, and they all have some excellent specifications with great looks to match.
