Gretsch / Custom Shop Stephen Stern Built Falcon - "Mayura" - Custom Made For Scott Holiday (Rival Sons) / 2020 / Guitar For Sale

Discover this stunning Gretsch Falcon custom built by Stephen Stern, Gretsch Custom Shop's flagship master builder, specifically for Scott Holiday of Rival Sons!

This Falcon with its extraordinary finish was built specifically for Scott Holiday, following his artistic directions. The guitarist of American rock band Rival Sons has been a fan of Gretsch bass drum models for many years. With Gretsch, he sought to build a unique guitar, tailor-made to his image. Nicknamed "Mayura", the top of this guitar features the pattern of a Mexican carpet that Scott Holiday carries on tour from venue to venue like a talisman, covered with an absolutely extraordinary sunburst sparkle. From the pickguard to the headstock and fingerboard, there's also a peacock motif - a demand from Scott Holiday, who wanted this guitar to pay homage to the iconic Gretsch models named after bird species.

This Falcon is also equipped with special pickups made by TV Jones at Scott Holiday's request: there are three of them.

This guitar has been played in the studio on several titles, as well as on tour with Rival Sons. It also appears in several touring rig rundowns (videos in which he explains his touring gear). It comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Scott Holiday.

A truly exceptional Gretsch guitar!

In a milieu where desirable objects are generally locked away in a safe or behind glass, Matthieu Lucas’ collection is a refreshing exception to the rule.
He represents a new generation of guitar lovers, for whom music comes first and the sound is more important than the serial number. Like any fine collection, Matthieu Lucas’ one has a speciality: he tracks down instruments that have belonged to artists, from Jeff Buckley’s Telecaster to Tal Farlow’s Gibson, not to mention Spot - one of the few sunbursts to be found in France and which belonged to a certain Joe Bonamassa.

Through perseverance, Matthieu managed to open doors that are generally kept well shut and gained access to instruments that were not even supposed to be sold. And true to the principle that the love of music comes first, Matthieu is not the type to prevent a guitarist from enjoying his or her prized jewels.

Out of that desire to share, he finally created the Matt’s Guitar Shop showroom, a special place for selling and trading that gives Paris back its reputation for excellence in the area of beautiful guitars. Inspired and inspiring instruments, which continue to bring beautiful notes to the ears of music lovers.
