Classic Falcon Tone in a Slimmer Size

Pro guitarists everywhere helped design the 2016 Player's Edition Gretsch Black Falcon electric guitar. This Falcon sounds just like the full-bodied classic you love, but has a slimmer, lighter, more comfortable depth and modern features - like no-load tone pots and locking tuners - for greater versatility onstage and in the studio. The Gretsch Black Falcon's striking appearance, distinctive Filter'Tron humbucker tone, and haunting Bigsby vibrato make it a staple for rockabilly twang and classic rock 'n roll bite. And now, with its slimmer new size, gigging musicians will love playing their Falcon night after night.

Gretsch Falcon Player's Edition Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Slimmer, lighter body with full Falcon tone
  • No-load pots won't color your sound
  • String-through Bigsby provides sustain and texture
Slimmer, lighter body with full Falcon tone

Gretsch's ML bracing gives the Player's Edition Black Falcon the same full-bodied howl and bark as the original in a compact design that's perfect for playing onstage. This thinner 2.25" profile not only feels great against your body, but can also reduce feedback issues compared to a full-size electric archtop.

No-load pots won't color your sound

Guitarists who won't play a buffered-bypass pedal or use a cable over 15' will love Gretsch's new no-load tone pots, which are completely bypassed from the circuit when run wide open. These pots use Squeezebox paper-in-oil caps for a wider tonal landscape between settings 0 and 10.

String-through Bigsby provides sustain and texture

Sweetwater guitarists love the classic Bigsby tone. Gretsch's string-through Bigsby lets you add subtle texture to chords and break up single-note leads without adverse affects to your sustain.

Gretsch Black Falcon Player's Edition Electric Guitar Features:
  • Hollow thinline Gretsch Black Falcon
  • Slimmer, lighter, and more comfortable
  • Same sound and sustain as the original
  • Gretsch Filer'Tron humbuckers deliver classic bark and bite
  • "True bypass" tone pots won't color your sound into your amp
  • Ebony fretboard with 12" radius plays fast and smooth
  • String-through Bigsby vibrato tailpiece adds expressive textures to chords
  • Stable locking tuners
