Introducing the Gretsch Limited Edition boygenius Broadkaster Jr. | Gretsch Guitars

When booked for a triple-bill tour in late 2018, the three solo artists decided to record a joint 7" single to sell on the merch table. The 7” became 2018’s self-titled six-song EP. After the EP’s breakout success it became clear that Baker, Bridgers and Dacus had created something far more potent than they had anticipated. Praised for their haunting lyrics, soaring harmonies, and the seamless alchemy between each member’s unique musical sensibilities, boygenius have pioneered a singular approach to crafting emotionally driven songs which has carved them a vital space amongst the pantheon of modern-day music. On the heels of the record’s success, boygenius released the rest, which includes four new songs.

Fans worldwide can purchase the Gretsch Limited Edition boygenius Broadkaster Jr. through the band's merch store at To learn more and view product descriptions, click here. Product photos and images of the Gretsch Limited Edition boygenius Broadkaster Jr. can be found here.
