Gretsch USA custom shop has officially announced the first and only 12-string bass guitar on the market. Introducing the 12-string Falcon bass guitar, designed especially for Cheap Trick bassist Tom Petersson.

Whilst there have been prototype basses made with up to 27 strings on, this particular Gretsch bass is the only 12 string bass guitar available. However, it is not due to be available until 2017.

The specification of this bass includes: a liminated maple body, 22 vintage-style frets, C-Shaped maple gloss-finished neck, a shorter 30.3" scale for comfort, dual custom Seymour Duncan Super'Tron pickups, gold hardware and a specially designed Cadillac-esque tailpiece.

This signature bass will also be made available in a regular four-string version.
