The demands of pro guitarists everywhere helped design Gretsch's G6136TG Players Edition Falcon without them even knowing it. This Falcon sounds just like the full-bodied classic you love, but it has a slimmer, lighter, more comfortable depth. Modern features like No-load Tone Pots and locking tuners offer great versatility onstage and in the studio. This stylish 6-string's striking appearance, all-new FT-67 Filter'Tron humbuckers, and haunting Bigsby vibrato make the G6136TG Players Edition Falcon a staple for rockabilly twang and classic rock 'n' roll bite.
The G6136TG Players Edition Falcon boasts Gretsch's ML bracing to give the guitar the same full-bodied howl and bark as the original White Falcon in a more compact design that's perfect for playing onstage. This thinner 2.5-inch-deep profile not only feels great against your body, but it can greatly reduce feedback issues when compared with a full-size electric archtop. And it allows for much more freedom of movement when performing onstage.
Guitarists who avoid a buffered-bypass pedal or cables over 15 feet long will love Gretsch's No-load Tone Pots. The pots' design allows them to be completely bypassed from your G6136TG Players Edition Falcon's circuit when run wide open. You'll notice a stronger signal with more high-end clarity. These tone pots also employ Gretsch's Squeezebox paper-in-oil capacitors for a wider tonal landscape between settings 0 and 10 that's easy to fine-tune with a roll of the knob.
Music Experience guitarists love a classic Bigsby vibrato, and these tailpieces are pretty much synonymous with the Gretsch sound. The Bigsby B6GP on the Players Edition Falcon boasts a string-through design that makes restringing your G6136TG a piece of cake, with a pinned rocking bar bridge and GraphTech TUSQ XL nut to keep the guitar in tune under heavy vibrato workouts. This great design lets you add subtle texture to chords and break up single-note leads without adverse effects on your sustain.
The world’s greatest hollow body guitars just got even better. Designed for the working professional, our all-new Players Edition Hollow Body instruments feature authentic Gretsch sound and style while incorporating cutting-edge features for maximum power, comfort and versatility. 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” 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 Midnight Sapphire or White 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.
