• Gretsch G6136DC White Falcon (SOLD)

    Our price:

    Eye catching  Gretsch G6136DC White Falcon  hollow body archtop guitar from the Pre-Fender era built by the excellent craftsman of the Terada factory in Japan.

    Nice and very clean Gretsch G6136DC White Falcon! This One of the most beautiful Gretsch guitars ever made. This modern version of the White Falcon features a double-cutaway hollow body with an arched top, parallel tone bar bracing, oversized bound f-holes, and gold-sparkle binding. More info on the history of this iconic guitar is found HERE.

    The White Falcon is an iconic Gretsch and for many years these beauties were quite rare. This is an example of an updated design, sharing an eminently practical feature with the Country Gentleman II where the neck joint is considerably shorter. This gives significantly more access to the upper frets than on previous or single-cutaway models. It’s a very comfortable guitar to play, and really sounds great.

    Pickups are High Sensitive Filtertron which are standard output and give a great sound, the tone is derived from a tone switch circuitry set up as found on the ’58 onwards guitars. Build quality and finish are superb, faultless in fact. The Japanese makers at Terada are all top line guitar builders, and it shows. Flawless craftsmanship! From a tonal point of view the guitar is really alive and offers a broad spectrum of tones from jazz and country through to rocking style. The extended scale of 648 mm gives her a fantastic low end. This beauty comes with a nice quality TKL case with the Gretsch logo. Near mint condition. Listen to a sound impression here:
