Gretsch G6136T-59 LTD Falcon, Lake Placid Blue

Featuring a sublime mix of Vintage Select and Players Edition specs, the stunning limited edition G6136T-59 Falcon in Lake Placid Blue is guaranteed to play and sound as good as it looks!

Built with reference to Ray Butts' original Filter'Tron notes, this Gretsch beauty features TV Jones Ray Butts "Ful-Fidelity" Filter'Tron pickups, which are arguably the most accurate reproductions of original '50s Filter'Trons ever made, and when combined with the highly resonant laminated Maple top, 1959-style trestle bracing, and laminated maple back and sides, this instrument becomes a veritable Gretsch tone cannon. Other features include late '50s Tone-Switch circuitry with Squeezebox paper-in-oil capacitors, classic Gretsch Knurled Thumbwheel strap buttons, chrome hardware, locking Grover Imperial tuners, Graph Tech Tusq XL nut, and a pinless "String-Thru" Bigsby B6, all of which ensure that this guitar is one you'll never want to put down.

Satisfying eyes and ears with its golden tones and gleaming looks, this rare bird comes alive in the player’s hands, singing with its distinctive voice at every strum.
