Arched Laminated Maple Hollow Body
Crafted from arched laminated maple, the Gretsch G6136T-59GE White Falcon provides you with a resonant tone and a lightweight construction that can be played all night long. By incorporating classic "F" sound holes into the sound board you can achieve a natural acoustic projection when used unamplified. Sound holes enable the sound to vibrate freely around the guitar body and escape through these elegantly designed holes.
Comfortable Neck Profile with Ebony Fingerboard
As well as as offering a comfortable body shape, the G6136T-59GE White Falcon also features a standard “U”-shaped maple neck which bears a 12”-radius for ultimate comfort. In addition, an ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets delivers a memorable playing experience that works with any fret-hand style.
TV Jones Classic Pickups
Equipped with a pair of TV Jones Classic pickups, the G6136T-59GE delivers the iconic vintage twang and growl of a late 1950’s, and early 1960’s vintage Filter’Tron pickup. This versatile duo of classic pickups is a perfect choice for blues, rockabilly and country players.
Real Bone Nut For Enhanced Sustain
The Gretsch G6136T-59GE features a real bone nut, which maintains its authentic appearance. The main purpose of using a real bone nut compared to modern materials is that bone offers excellent resonance and sustain. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.
Bigsby B6GVT Vibrato Tailpiece
Like many guitars by Gretsch, the G6136T-59GE features a Bigsby B6GVT vibrato tailpiece which offers a smooth tremolo system to create classic sounding pitch bend, providing evenly spread movement across all strings. The Bigsby can be used to create subtle movements in chords, adding extra depth and texture to your sound.
Space Control Bridge
This innovative style bridge is named after its method of adjusting the spacing between each string. Designed by Gretsch’s own Jimmie Webster, the Space Control bridge offers a simple adjustment of the spacing between each string, using the six wheel-shaped saddles positioned along a threaded bar. This allows the player to set a broad string spread for finger-style work or a narrow spread for pick and chord work.
Ornate appointments include gold jeweled “G Arrow” knobs, gold sparkle bound neck, classic F Holes, Mother-of-Pearl Thumbnail inlays, 1959 Style Trestle bracing, vintage white gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and a gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo. Also includes a deluxe hardshell case for storage and transportation.
