Gretsch G6636T Players Edition Falcon Centre Block with Bigsby, Black Overview
With its classic Gretsch Nashville styling and sound, the G6636T Players Edition Falcon Centre Block in Black is everything you'd expect from the legendary manufacturer, and thanks to its chambered spruce center block, a whole lot more.
Featuring a 16" version of the venerable Falcon body, a Maple neck with Standard U profile, 12" radius Ebony fingerboard, and 22 medium jumbo frets, the G6636T is pure Gretsch from headstock to jack socket, but with the addition of a chambered spruce centre block, the laminated Maple hollow body becomes semi-hollow - allowing for greater strength, higher gain settings, and far greater control of feedback, whilst retaining a lively performance without the addition of excessive weight - thanks to the use of spruce.
Pickups are two alnico V High-Sensitive Filter'Tron humbuckers, so that legendary Gretsch bite and bark is as accessible as the Bigsby® B7CP String-Thru trem system. Classic Gretsch detailing is there to finish off the aesthetic with style and grace; pearloid Neo-Classic Thumbnail inlays, gold hardware, jeweled G-Arrow control knobs, and a Gold Plexi pickguard with Gold Gretsch® Logo - all wrapped up in a seductive black gloss finish.
Classic Gretsch style and sound - now possible with higher gain!

The G6636T Players Edition Falcon™ Center Block Double-Cut with String-Thru Bigsby® is an innovative new version of the venerable Falcon, with a slightly smaller 16” double-cutaway body and a chambered spruce center block that enhances body resonance for more organic tone and comfortably lighter weight.
