Gretsch G6139CB Falcon Center-Block Single Cutaway - White

A new take on a classic design the G6139CB gives you Gretsch hollow-body tone, complete with Filtertron pickups, but incorporates a center block to improve sustain and helps prevent unwanted feedback.

The center block runs the entire length of the body and imparts several sonic advantages. First, it minimizes body-resonant feedback and allows a more “high gain-friendly” performance. Second, it’s made of spruce, which produces a spirited, lively tone. Third, the center block itself is chambered at the lower bout to minimize weight. Fourth, the pinned wood bridge base extends over the sides of the center block about 5/8” on either side, transferring string-vibration energy to the two f-hole-vented body chambers to produce a rich and full-bodied tone.

Other premium features include a three-piece maple neck; 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid Neo-Classic? "thumbnail" inlays and multi-ply sparkle appointments; Gretsch "winged/vertical" sparkle logo; and dual High Sensitive Filter'Tron? pickups. The guitar also has jeweled-arrow knobs and gold hardware, an Adjusto-Matic? bridge with pinned ebony base and Cadillac? "G" tailpiece, Grover? Imperial? tuners and Schaller? strap locks. Available in White with Gold Sparkle appointments and Black with Silver Sparkle appointments. Deluxe hard-shell case included.
