Falcon Gets the Center Block!
The demands of pro guitarists everywhere helped design Gretsch's G6636T Player's Edition White Falcon semi-hollowbody electric guitar without them even knowing it. This Falcon sounds just like the full-bodied classic you love, but has a smaller, lighter, more comfortable 16" body with a chambered spruce center block. Modern features like no-load tone pots and locking tuners offer great versatility onstage and in the studio. And the Players Edition White Falcon's striking appearance, High-Sensitive Filter'Tron humbucker tone, and haunting Bigsby vibrato make the G6636T Players Edition White Falcon a staple for rockabilly twang and classic rock 'n' roll bite.
Chambered spruce center block enhances your sound
You get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Gretsch G6636T, thanks to its long spruce center block. Running the full length of the body, this chambered center block allows the otherwise hollow body to resist resonant-frequency feedback. That means you can rock out louder with more gain, without your amplifier squealing out of control. Spruce is a snappy tonewood too, and since the center block connects with the bridge, the note definition, clarity, and sustain on the G6636T are amazing.
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 G6636T'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.
Lower-set neck for a more comfortable feel
We've played a lot of guitars here at Sweetwater, and we know that not all players are comfortable with the "traditional" Gretsch feel. Gretsch knows this too, which is why they've set the neck lower on the G6636T for greater playing comfort. If some Gretsch semi-hollowbody guitars feel cumbersome to you, get your hands on the G6636T — it was made just for you.
