The Falcon represents the very best of Gretsch's legendary heritage and exquisite guitar craft. This limited edition '62 model is built to precise year specs and features a pair of Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity pickups - wound to the exact personal preferences of the Filter’Tron's original designer.

Construction

Made of a maple body and neck combination, the '62 Falcon produces plenty of acoustic resonance and looks the part, to boot. The neck boasts a fantastic ebony fretboard, housing real mother of pearl Neo-Classic inlays in that sumptuous Gretsch style. It has the authentic vintage feel, too, thanks to its standard "U" shape and vintage small frets. The Zero Fret means that when you play the open strings, it still sounds like you're fretting the notes and blends much better with the rest of your playing.

Sound

Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity humbuckers are the real deal. Essentially, they're Filter'Trons made exactly how inventor Ray Butts liked them. They feature all the bells and whistles used by Gretsch through the '60s - vintage pole spacing, covers and an original zinc-coated backplate. They have an much airier, dynamic quality to the sound that the standard Filter'Trons don't.
