Jimmie Webster's Holy Grail Hollowbody

The Gretsch G6136-55GE Vintage Select 1955 White Falcon hollowbody electric guitar embodies the genius of famed guitarist Jimmie Webster. This guitar delivers an unforgettable snap, thanks to its arched maple body. Add to that its vintage-voiced TV Jones T'Armond single-coil pickups, and you have a recipe for classic Gretsch sound. A comfortable standard U-shaped maple neck is topped with a highly playable ebony fingerboard. A pinned Synchro-Sonic bridge and Cadillac tailpiece imbue the G6136-55GE with attention-grabbing sophistication. The Gretsch G6136-55GE Vintage Select 1955 White Falcon was built to period-correct specs, so owning this alluring hollowbody is almost like owning the quintessential Holy Grail electric guitar!

Gretsch G6136-55GE Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition
  • Sweet vintage tone from TV Jones T'Armond pickups
  • Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility
Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition

Maple has to be one of the most lively, bright, and colorful tonewoods out there, which is exactly why Gretsch decided to make their G6136-55GE Vintage Select 1955 White Falcon almost entirely out of this wonderful wood. At Sweetwater, we've found that this hollowbody's arched body yields a wonderfully snappy, open tone that, when combined with the multidimensional sound of its pickups, cuts through a dense mix and sounds great in any situation.

Sweet vintage tone from TV Jones T'Armond pickups

When you want that classic '50s-era Gretsch tone, you need real TV Jones single-coil pickups. That's why Gretsch gave their G6136-55GE Vintage Select 1955 White Falcon a pair of TV T'Armond pickups. Designed to sound just like the pickups found in '50s and '60s Gretsch guitars, these pickups give your guitar a multidimensional tone with plenty of articulate detail. It's the perfect sound for rock, rockabilly, blues, country, and more.

Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility

It's easy to stereotype the Gretsch G6136-55GE Vintage Select 1955 White Falcon until you play it, and then you realize you can pull off a lot of tonal tricks with it. With a volume control for each pickup, you can create your perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you have the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. Of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually, but there's a lot of territory to cover when you combine them.

Gretsch G6136-55GE Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Period-correct version of Jimmie Webster's hollowbody electric guitar
  • Arched maple body delivers a deliciously snappy, open tone
  • TV Jones T'Armond pickups yield sweet, vintage character
  • Highly playable standard U-shaped maple neck with ebony fingerboard
  • 2 volume controls and 1 tone control create exceptional sonic flexibility
The Gretsch G6136-55GE hollowbody electric guitar belongs in every guitarist's collection!
