Instrument Categories: , ,


Comments Here’s something not quite vintage, but certainly unusual – a 2006 Gretsch White Falcon Bass G6136LSB (Long Scale Bass).The Gretsch White Falcon was introduced in 1954 as a top of the line showpiece for the NAMM show, but a bass model wasn’t put into production at the time. A few years ago, Gretch decided to add a bass version to the line.This 2006 example shows off the quality of Gretsch’s current production; it’s a really good instrument. Being fully hollow, it has its limitations at high stage volumes, but in many other contexts it’s an outstanding bass.
Serial Number JT06116653, which dates it to November of 2006, and the 6653rd instrument built that year. Built at the Japan Terada plant.
Pricing $2,499.99 with original hardshell case. SOLD
Neck Maple neck with gold-sparkle-bound, purfled ebony fingerboard. 34 inch scale length, 1.28 inch nut width, 12 inch fingerboard radius. Gold The White Falcon plaque on headplate.
Frets Original medium-large frets with very minor wear.
Body Double Cutaway, 17 inch wide, Maple laminate body with gold sparkle binding around all the edges including the F-holes. Fully hollow with waffle supports on the top and back, and soundpost under the bridge.
Finish Gloss white poly finish in near perfect condition. The padded snap-on backpad protects the finish, though unlike the guitar models, it doesn’t cover an access plate.
Hardware/electronics All original! Gold plated metal parts. Sperzel locking tuners, G-cutout tailpiece, Space Control Bridge on ebony base, TV Jones Thunder ‘Tron pickups, and Gretsch wiring – master volume, individual volume controls, pickup selector, tone switch, and standby switch. Gretsch knurled strap buttons. There is a small amount of plating wear on the top edge of the bridge pickup – the player rested his thumb there.
Playability/Action This bass plays really well. This is a full scale, 34 inch bass. We will of course set up the instrument to the player’s requirements.
Case Original hardshell, archtop case included.
