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

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 G6136LSB White Falcon Bass, 2011

Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass, 2011

Here’s something unusual a Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass dating to November 2011. We rarely see these basses; they were not produced with the original 1950’s versions of the White Falcon, and first appeared around 2006 as a new model built for Gretsch at the Japan Terada plant (hence the JT at the start of the serial number). This plant builds many really excellent quality instruments.
The Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass uses a fully hollow, arched Maple laminate body with tone bar bracing, and a 34-inch scale Maple neck with bound Ebony fingerboard, and with the engraved gold-plated “THE WHITE FALCON” plaque on the Falcon-styled headstock. It’s a White Falcon, so of course all of the binding is Gold Sparkle.

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.
