The Gretsch Custom Shop is where the time-honoured legacy reaches its creative apex. No guitars epitomize the incredible expertise and attention to detail of Gretsch’s most skilled builders like those produced in the Custom Shop. From modern recreations of legendary instruments to artist tribute models, the Gretsch Custom Shop takes “That Great Gretsch Sound” to an entirely new level, whilst preserving and perfecting it for future generations to experience.
Expertly hand-built by senior master builder Stephen Stern, the Gretsch Custom Shop G6136-T '59 Falcon Heavy Relic is an instantly-recognisable instrument - regarded by many as the quintessential "hollowbody" electric guitar. The Falcon's body is made from Laminated Maple and features trestle bracing, improving sustain whilst reducing feedback. The "V" shape Flamed Maple neck feels authentically vintage and is topped with a sleek 12" radius Ebony fingerboard for exceptional comfort and playability.
Designed for the player who wants a "hotter" sounding guitar with more tonal options, the '59 Falcon is loaded with a ferocious pair of TV Jones® pickups. The Classic Plus™ in the bridge position and Super'Tron™ in the neck combine perfectly to capture the iconic Gretsch sound. They are also wound to be a little hotter which helps push your amp into overdrive. An Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with Bigsby® B6GW tailpiece provide the '59 Falcon with plenty of vintage warble and a set of Grover Locking Imperial tuners make ensure everything stays in tune!
This stunning instrument comes presented in a hardshell case and includes a strap and certificate of authenticity.
- Masterbuilt by Stephen Stern - A masterbuilt guitar is built from start to finish by just one highly skilled luthier, or master builder. The care taken and attention to detail are on a different level to standard production models. Truly a work of art!
- Trestle Bracing - The internal bracing determines how the guitar will vibrate and resonate when played. Trestle bracing improves the guitar's sustain and helps to reduce feedback at higher volumes.
- TV Jones® Pickups - TV Jones pickups are synonymous with Gretsch guitars. The Classic Plus™ and Super'Tron™ pickups have a higher output which helps to push your amp into natural breakup.
- Grover® Locking Imperial™ - Once you've used locking tuners, you won't want to use anything else! Locking tuners allow for super fast string changes whilst ensuring maximum tuning stability.
- Bigsby® B6GW Tailpiece - This classic "whammy bar" allows you to bend the pitch of notes or entire chords with your picking hand for classic vibrato effects.
