Music Store Live is proud to present this Gretsch White Falcon G6136TLDS! Ready for take off! This White Falcon plays like a dream which makes good sense because it was originally conceived to be a "dream guitar" - more on that later. This Gretsch can run the gamut in a big way! The clean tones are just that - big and clean with a clarity you would expect from a very nice acoustic arch top, thanks to the lovely Dynasonic pickups that are loaded into this Falcon. Add a little grit and this guitar is ready to rock out. The pickups in this beast spit out lush and crunchy harmonics all over the place. The neck is straight, fast and very comfortable. The action is set low and the intonation is spot on. This is a tremendous playing and sounding guitar that covers a whole lot of ground!
The Gretsch Falcon was the only guitar competing with the Gibson Super 400 in 1955. Originally conceived by a marketing strategist at Gretsch who gained inspiration by touring the production factory, it features many of the distinctive appointments of the finest instruments in Gretsch's line up at the time.
Obviously the Vintage White Lacquer finish is a big eye catcher and is made only more fetching by the gold sparkle binding and the bound oversized F holes. The maple neck features an ebony fretboard which is adorned with feather motif mother of pearl hump block inlays. The dual DynaSonic single coil pickups sound incredible and the gold plexi pickguard and Bigsby Vibrato Tailpiece really set the guitar off. Other fine features include the V shaped headstock, gold plated hardware, Synchro-Sonic bridge, Grover Imperial die cast tuners and a synthetic bone nut.
This Gretsch White Falcon G6136TLDS is in pristine mint condition with absolutely no nicks, scratches, or blemishes of any kind.
