Gretsch G6636-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon Centre Block in Black with Stoptail

Featuring Custom-Wound Filter'Tron Pickups & V-Stoptail. Includes Hardshell Case.

Written by

Elliot Stent

Richard Fortus is a highly-respected guitarist who has collaborated with some of the most influential rockers in history. As a member of Guns N' Roses for almost 20 years, he's played to sold-out arenas around the world and is often seen grasping a Gretsch guitar on-stage. To honour this relationship, Gretsch has unleashed a gorgeous signature Falcon guitar for Fortus — boasting a stealthy black finish, a V-Stoptail bridge and a pair of custom-wound Filter'Tron pickups!
