Gretsch Masterbuilt G6136T-59 Falcon Relic in Sea Foam Green Overview.

This rare bird is a one of a kind hand built Relic based upon a 1959 spec Falcon in a stunning Sea Foam Green finish. Masterbuilder Steve Stern and his team leave no stone unturned when making these true works of art. The Gretsch Masterbuilt G6136T-59 Relic sets itself apart from the masses with it's incredible attention to detail and build quality, an uncompromising style that is just simply cool and a striking look that is awe inspiring. Pick it up and you soon realise that it doesn't stop there, impeccable playability with a great low action and a full, clear sound with a resonance that makes the guitar feel a part of you. A truly special instrument that will leave you wondering where it has been all this time!

Perhaps Gretsch's single most famous guitar, the White Falcon was designed a showpiece and not initially intended for commercial production. Following a showing at the 1954 NAMM show, interest was so piqued that Gretsch entered the model into regular production in 1955. The guitar was conceived as the absolute top of the line; the Cadillac of archtops. With a large 17-inch body and 25 1/2-inch scale length, this Gretsch came replete with all the highest end cosmetic appointments including four-ply binding and a generous helping of gold-plated hardware and detailing. The design started to change in 1958 when gold plastic binding and thumbnail inlays were introduced.
