Gretsch G6136T-BLK Players Edition Falcon with String-Thru Bigsby, Filter'Tron Pickups, Black


Gretsch G6136T-BLK Players Edition Falcon with String-Thru Bigsby, Filter'Tron Pickups, Black

With its slimmer and lighter body, the hollow bodied G6136T-BLK Players Edition Falcon becomes lighter and more comfortable to play, without sacrificing any of that classic Falcon tone!

Gretsch's ML bracing helps ensure that the Player's Edition Black Falcon provides the same howl and bark as the original Falcons, but with its thinner 2 1/4" profile it becomes the perfect tool for modern performances; not only does its smaller frame feel comfortable, but also helps reduce the feedback that full-size electric archtop can be prone to at higher volumes. Squeezebox paper-in-oil caps insure tonal variety, and No-load pots, which are completely bypassed from the circuit when set to 10, ensure that the classic tone produced by the High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ pickups is not compromised in any way; this is especially useful when a buffered-bypass pedal or longer cable are used.

Other features include a string-through Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned “rocking” bar bridge, Ebony fretboard with 12" radius, GraphTech® Tusq XL nut, and gold Grover® Imperial™ locking tuners.

What Gretsch 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 plug in, 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 pristine high end, 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 2.25” 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 jeweled “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 hollowbody electric guitar for modern players who demand uniqueness from themselves—and their tools. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.
