The Gretsch G6136T-WHT Players Edition Falcon Bigsby Guitar in White is an absolute beauty. Built to Gretsch's incredibly high standards of quality, this exquisite instrument is a dream to play, looks gorgeous and produces lush, richly textured tones. The G6136T-WHT White Falcon comes with its very own deluxe hardshell case, so whether you're at home, in the studio or on the road, your instrument is well protected.
Glorious Falcon body
The bound laminated maple body is finished in an eye-catching white, which is protected by a coating of gloss urethane. Built to Gretsch's hollow body profile and crafted using laminated maple, the G6136T-WHT has an enviably bright and airy tone. Boasting a forceful mid-range thump, penetrating low-end and glassy highs, it is a well-rounded player with exceptional versatility.
To ensure longevity, the Gretsch have employed their ML bracing pattern to reinforce the soundboard, which is adorned with over-sized f-holes to retain that classic aesthetic. The shallower 2.25-inch body establishes a comfortable feel in the hands without compromising on tonal energy or complexity. You can rest assured that whether you're on a small stage or a grand arena, the G6136-WHT has the power to perform anywhere.
Supportive neck design
The slender maple neck affords a supportive and reassuring feel whilst playing. The bound ebony fingerboard creates a confident playing surface on which to flex your creative muscles. The fingerboard is a string bender's dream - shaped to a highly desirable 12-inch radius -, allowing smooth bends to be executed with the greatest of ease, whilst reducing the chances of premature note drop-off. The cutaway design offers greater access to the upper frets so that the entire fingerboard is easier to reach.
The neck and fingerboard partnership works consistently to deliver a "tight"-sounding articulation in every note. The generous 25.5-inch scale length for the strings to resonate along, improving the overall sustain significantly. Neo-classic thumbnail positions inlays guide your way along the fingerboard in style.
High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups
The Gretsch G6136T is equipped with a pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbuckers, which complement the stirring tones of the body beautifully. Control comes in the form of individual pickup volume controls, master volume and tone pots, and a three-way pickup selector switch. Between these controls, you have everything that you could need to pull any tone that you desire. From blues and hard rock, to country and jazz, the Falcon produces sophisticated tones of the highest order, every time.
Fitted to the G6136T-WHT is the rocking bar bridge with a securely pinned ebony base, coupled with a superb Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece. A unique string-through design on the Bigsby elevates its vibrato control consistency, enhancing resonance and speeding up string changes at the same time.
The "shaped headstock - complete with vertical winged sparkle Gretsch logo - is home to the hard-working Grover Imperial die-cast tuning machines, holding you strings firmly in tune no matter how wildly you rock out. All hardware is gold-plated to compliment the white finish beautifully. Another unique feature is that of the pickguard featuring the silhouette Gretsch logo and Falcon graphic.
