SOLD!!! Gretsch White Falcon G6126TLH Left Handed Archtop, 2005

It’s unusual enough to run across the Gretsch White Falcon, but to see one with 1950’s style Trestle bracing AND Left Handed is another thing entirely! Originally created as a showpiece for the annual winter 1955 NAMM music trade show in Anaheim, California, the Gretsch White Falcon received an unexpected level of interest – and orders.

Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. White, 2016

Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. White, 2016

This Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. in Vintage White, is a great little guitar and is a new model. Blending influences from three sources – the classic Gretsch White Falcon, the Jet body design, and the new Gretsch Players models. Aside from being very flashy, this is a great playing and sounding guitar.
Every once in a while, something built as a promotional item for an industry trade show really takes off, gets more intention than expected and is put into production. This was the case with the 1954 Gretsch White Falcon, intended to show off the elegance and quality of the Gretsch electric archtop line at the 1954 NAMM trade show in California.

SOLD!!!! Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat Archtop Guitar, 2005

SOLD!!!! Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat Archtop Guitar, 2005

Here’s one we don’t see very often – a Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat Archtop signature model! This is based on a combination of 1955 6120 construction and 1958 style electronics. It has all the 1950’s Gretsch western decoration – the G-brand on the body, the Steer-head and cactus inlay set, 50’s style Bigsby arm and of course the Gretsch orange finish. It also has a couple of very modern upgrades – a pinned bridge and locking tuners for much faster string changes. This guitar is in all original condition and dates to November of 2005, the first year the Reverend Horton Heat signature model was available. It’s in very good condition and plays great.

SOLD!!! Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

SOLD!!! Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

The Gretsch G6120-1959LTV isn’t currently in production, but it represents the specs of the famous 1959 Gretsch Chet Atkins models, with lacquer finish, zero fret, Trestle bracing and TV Jones Classic pickups. Technically, this guitar isn’t a Chet Atkins model, as at time of construction Gretsch had not re-obtained the rights to the Atkins name. Still – the rest is the same. Based on a 16 inch wide, single cutaway body with sides 2.75 inches high.   It was originally built with a bracing system combining a pair of tone bars running the length of the body plus a sound post under the bridge, but in 1959 Gretsch added a ‘Trestle’ bracing system for Chet Atkins,  who was facing the common problem of hollow-body guitars feeding back at ever-increasing stage volumes.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Gretsch Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose G6119 Thinline Archtop Dark Cherry, 2008

The Gretsch Chet Atkins Tennesee Rose, G6119, is a direct descendant of the Gretsch Tennessean produced from 1958 to 1980, renamed for legal reasons. The Tennessean trademark is still owned by Gibson, and wasn’t included when the Chet Atkins and Country Gentleman names were bought back by Gretsch. Otherwise, the Tennessee Rose and Tennessean are the same design.
