Description

What Gretsch say....

Experience the Falcon as it was envisioned by the great Jimmie Webster in 1955. The G6136T-55GE Golden Era Edition 1955 White Falcon with Cadillac Tailpiece is a true 'Dream Guitar' that will be the hallmark of any guitar collection. Fluid playability, robustly flexible tone and, of course, stunning Falcon style combine for a big, bold instrument that pops in the spotlight.

A pair of TV Jones® T-Armond single-coil pickups and the new Gretsch Squeezebox paper-in-oil capacitors power this sonic raptor for crystal-clear transparent tone that lets the soul of the guitar's definitive hollowbody tone shine through. The Synchro-Sonic bridge not only lends original-era authenticity, it offers pinpoint intonation accuracy, locking into place with a thumbscrew for tool-free adjustment. Parallel tone bars reinforce the solid spruce top mated to laminated maple back and sides for powerful, balanced sound and increased projection from the 2.75"-deep body. The 12"-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and elegant mother-of-pearl hump block and feather inlays tops a maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard U-shaped profile for supple playability, making complex chords and intricate single-note playing effortless.

The White Falcon drips with sophisticated class, sporting shining gold hardware - including the iconic Cadillac G tailpiece and gold jeweled arrow knobs, gold sparkle bound neck, body and F Holes, gleaming vintage white gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and gold, vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo. The iconic G6136T-55GE White Falcon Golden Era is the quintessential Holy Grail guitar. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.
