Overview

An absolutely stunning electric guitar and iconic piece of rock history, the Gretsch White Falcon is just as revolutionary today as it was when first released in 1954. Originally fitted with dual single-coil pickups, the Falcon saw the addition of the now critically aclaimed Filtertron humbuckers in 1958.

This particular model is absolutely period accurate and reflects what is considered the best year for a White Falcon, the 1959.

Heres What Gretsch Have to Say

A sophisticated rendition of the original masterpiece, the G6136T-59 1959 White Falcon with Bigsby combines period-accurate features and appointments from the golden age of electric guitars. Satisfying eyes and ears with its golden tones and gleaming looks, this rare bird comes alive in the player’s hands, singing with its distinctive voice at every strum.

A pair of TV Jones Classic pickups generates powerful tone and unparalleled dynamics. The new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors provide an incredibly silky high end. Add some expressive shimmer to your playing with the Bigsby B6GVT vibrato tailpiece while the pinned Space Control bridge and bone nut combine for impeccable tuning stability. A highly resonant 3-ply maple top with 1959-style trestle bracing and multi-ply laminated maple back and sides make this instrument a veritable cannon, firing off notes with incredible projection and rich, balanced tone. A maple neck with a comfortable and versatile standard “U”-shaped profile for supple playability is capped by a 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and classic Gretsch thumbnail inlays, making complex chords, far-reaching bends and intricate single-note playing effortless.

Authentically iconic, this striking guitar displays gold hardware including the gold jeweled “G Arrow” knobs gold sparkle bound neck, body and F Holes, vintage white gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo. With its stunning looks and huge sound, the iconic G6136T-59GE White Falcon is the crown jewel of Gretsch guitars. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.

Staff in the shop are absolutely brilliant
The chap that served us was brilliant. He knew so much about the guitars and really helpful. We weren't buying the most expensive guitar in the shop but we were treated like we were. We also used the price match guarantee. Honestly couldn't be happier.
