Tap into Gretsch's legacy in American music

The G7593T Billy Duffy Falcon with Bigsby hollowbody electric guitar is a proud part of Gretsch's legacy in American music. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that got their start in 1883 as a banjo company? It wasn't long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you pick up a Gretsch guitar, you're holding more than a great axe, you're holding a piece of American music history.

A very BIG, very versatile guitar

This is (was, I guess, now that I have several others) my first Gretsch. I'd been considering one for a while, but wasn't sure which model would best fit with my perception of what a Gretsch 'oughta be'. I'd been thinking some flavor of 6120, or maybe a Duo Jet. Then I went to see the Cult, doing the "Electric Anniversary" tour, and I decided to look at this. I live about 90 minutes from Sweetwater, so I drove up to have a look. And I was very impressed. It's a BIG guitar, and I'm not a very large guy (but then, neither is Brian Setzer). But it's very easy to play. The neck profile is a little more full than the typical Gretsch toothpick, it's kind of a 'D' profile with a subtle flattening on the back. It sounds great, both acoustically and plugged in; the pickups are wound hotter than the standard 'HS' Filters, probably midrange PAF in terms of output, but still sound right. The Bigsby works...about as well as Bigsbys ever work, I like the Chet-style arm, and if you work within its limitations it will stay in decent tune. I played this, a G6128T-DCM (double-cut Duo Jet), and a 6120 (don't recall the flavor). Even though this is the least 'Gretschy' of them - longer scale, bigger body, 'hot' pickups...it's the one I bought. I love the Baldwin aesthetics and the nickel and chrome against the pure (not aged) white. Looks so much 'cleaner' than gold, to me. My only real gripe is, it's awfully expensive. Comparing street prices, it's pretty much knocking on the door of CS Gibson stuff. IMO that's a lot of money for a (albeit very well-made) Japanese import. But hey, it does come with a "Billy Duffy" tea towel!
