Player's Perspective

Majestic. Classic. We're proud to bring you this gorgeous Midnight Sapphire G6136TG Falcon from our friends over at Gretsch!

The Players Edition guitars are a great offering in the Gretsch line that offers a Custom Shop level of quality without the hefty price tag. The feel and overall build quality are definitely that of a high-end guitar, and the tone is every bit as stellar. The neck feels great and the fretwork is as good as you would expect on this level of guitar. And man, does the combination of the classy yet rich Midnight Sapphire color and gold hardware look absolutely incredible!

Sitting somewhere between a low-output humbucker and a single-coil, the Filtertron pickups on this guitar sound amazing. They have a very distinct chime to them that combine well with the hollowbody construction for genres like classic rock n' roll, blues, rockabilly, jazz and country. We love these unique pickups into a Fender blackface or tweed amp, or anything that the chimey pickups can drive the front-end of. These new modern reworkings also handle higher levels of overdrive and distortion better than their vintage counterparts.

For a distinctly vintage-accurate sound and construction with an unmistakably iconic look, there's no better choice than a Gretsch Players Edition!

Manufacturer's Description

The G6136TG Players Edition Falcon™ Hollow Body with String-Thru Bigsby® and Gold Hardware is one of the most desired guitars in history. From the classic standout aesthetics to the deep, complex sound, this top-notch performer is ideal for elevating your musical game and making a statement. When you sling a Falcon over your shoulder and plug in, you’re announcing to the world you’re serious about your playing and plan to leave a mark.

The all-new FT-67 Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups were designed to capture authentic vintage Gretsch voicing but with a more well-rounded tone for modern playing styles. This powerful pair of pickups provide open and pristine top-end chime, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. The innovative Gretsch “ML” bracing delivers huge hollow body sound from the comfortable 2.5”-deep maple body. The control complement — separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup toggle switching, no-load master tone and master volume — allows for infinite tonal variations. Our “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitor adds smooth vintage tone while the all-new treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down.

A 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with rolled edges and 22 medium jumbo frets top a 25.5”-scale maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard “U”-shaped profile for fluidly easy playing, while Luminlay® side dots offer precision fretting in low-light settings. The Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and Adjusto-Matic™ bridge combine with the Graph Tech® 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.

Boasting powerful sound and stage-ready tonal flexibility, this Falcon presents total sophistication — from the White or Midnight Sapphire gloss urethane finish to the gold Grover® Imperial™ locking tuning machines and gold jeweled G-arrow control knobs, to the gold sparkle bound neck, body and F-holes, to the striking pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays and gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch and Falcon logos. A bold visual and sonic statement, the G6136TG Players Edition Falcon Hollow Body with String-Thru Bigsby and Gold Hardware updates the archetypical hollowbody electric guitar for modern players who demand distinction from themselves — and their tools.
