What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gretsch G6136T Players Edition Falcon with String-Thru Bigsby and Filtertron pickups is a fantastic Archtop Hollowbody Guitar model by Gretsch.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Gretsch G6136T Falcon Guitar's String-Thru Bigsby tremolo, comfortable U-shaped neck, 22 medium jumbo frets, ebony fingerboard and the powerful High Sensitive Filtertron Humbucker pickups.
What Gretsch has to say:
One of the most-desired guitars in production today, the G6136T Players Edition Falcon with String-Thru Bigsby is an uncompromising instrument. From the classic aesthetics to the deep, complex sound, this top-notch performer is ideal for elevating your musical game.
When you sling a Falcon over your shoulder and plugin, you’re announcing to the world you’re ready to play, and you’re serious about it. Two High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups grace the laminated maple body, providing a pristine high end, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for a tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments.
The innovative Gretsch “ML” bracing delivers huge hollow body sound from the comfortable 2.25” body. The control complement—separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, no-load master tone and master volume—allows for infinite tonal variations.
Our new “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down.
A 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and striking pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays tops a maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard “U”-shaped profile for fluidly easy playing. The Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned “rocking” bar bridge combine with the GraphTech® Tusq XL nut for maximum tuning stability.
The Bigsby tailpiece is now string-through, making it quicker (and easier) to change strings as well as providing increased vibration transfer for enhanced sustain. A treat for the eyes and ears, this Falcon presents total sophistication—from the gold Grover® Imperial™ locking tuning machines and gold jewelled “G Arrow” control knobs to the gold sparkle bound neck, body and F-Holes, white gloss urethane finish and gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo.
A bold visual and sonic statement, the G6136T Players Edition Falcon with String-Thru Bigsby updates the archetypical hollow-body electric guitar for modern players who demand uniqueness from themselves—and their tools. Includes a deluxe hardshell case. Available in Black or White
