The Gretsch White Falcon is an iconic guitar! The first time I saw one was Stephen Still playing one live. Later Billy Duffy of The Cult cranking out power riffs and killer solos on his Gretsch White Falcon.
The Gretsch G6136T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 White Falcon hollowbody electric guitar is simply dripping with sophistication. Its arched maple body delivers an unforgettable snap that's enhanced beautifully by its vintage-voiced TV Jones Classic pickups.
When you want that classic '50s-era Gretsch tone, you need real TV Jones humbuckers. Designed to sound just like the humbuckers found in '50s and '60s Gretsch guitars, these pickups give your guitar a beautiful bright and open sound. They have a jangly high with a bite you'd normally find with single-coil pickups. It's the perfect sound for rock, rockabilly, blues, country, and more.
A standard U-shaped maple neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard, 22 Medium Jumbo Frets, 25.5"scale and a 12" radius providing you with incredible playability.
With a Bigsby tailpiece and period-correct specs, owning the Gretsch G6136T-59 Vintage Select Edition '59 Falcon™ Hollow Body electric guitar is almost like owning the original masterpiece!
