Classic Falcon Tone in a Slimmer Size

The demands of pro guitarists everywhere helped design Gretsch's G6136T Player's Edition White Falcon hollowbody electric guitar without them even knowing it. This Falcon sounds just like the full-bodied classic you love, but has a slimmer, lighter, more comfortable depth. Modern features like no-load tone pots and locking tuners offer great versatility onstage and in the studio. And the Gretsch Players Edition White Falcon's striking appearance, distinctive Filter'Tron humbucker tone, and haunting Bigsby vibrato make the G6136T Players Edition White Falcon a staple for rockabilly twang and classic rock 'n' roll bite.

Gretsch G6136T Players Edition White Falcon 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

The G6136T Players Edition White Falcon boasts Gretsch's ML bracing to give the guitar the same full-bodied howl and bark as the original White Falcon in a more compact design that's perfect for playing onstage. This thinner 2.25"-deep profile not only feels great against your body, but it can greatly reduce feedback issues when compared with a full-size electric archtop. And it allows for much more freedom of movement when performing onstage.

No-load pots won't color your sound

Guitarists who avoid a buffered-bypass pedal or cables over 15 feet long will love Gretsch's new no-load tone pots. The pots' design allows them to be completely bypassed from your G6136T's circuit when run wide open. You'll notice a stronger signal with more high-end clarity. And these tone pots use Gretsch's Squeezebox paper-in-oil capacitors for a wider tonal landscape between settings 0 and 10 that's easy to fine-tune with a roll of the knob.

String-through Bigsby provides sustain and texture

Sweetwater guitarists love a classic Bigsby vibrato. And these tailpieces are pretty much synonymous with the Gretsch sound. The Bigsby B6GP on the Players Edition White Falcon boasts a string-through design that makes restringing your G6136T a piece of cake. And the pinned rocking bar bridge and GraphTech Tusq XL nut keep the guitar in tune under heavy vibrato workouts. This great design lets you add subtle texture to chords and break up single-note leads without adverse affects on your sustain.

Gretsch G6136T Players Edition White Falcon Features:
  • Hollow thinline Gretsch White Falcon
  • Comfortable 2.25" body depth
  • Same sound and sustain as the original
  • Gretsch Filter'Tron humbuckers deliver classic bark and bite
  • No-load pots are bypassed when run full out
  • Ebony fretboard with 12" radius plays fast and smooth
  • String-through Bigsby B6GP vibrato adds expressive textures
  • Grover Imperial locking tuners
The Gretsch Players Edition White Falcon offers classic Gretsch tone in a thinline.
