Gretsch G6636TSL Players Edition Silver Falcon Center Block Double Cut in Black

Description

Much like the flashy White Falcon, the Silver Falcon offers the same top quality Gretsch craftsmanship and tone in a sleeker, darker package. Smaller-bodied, and featuring a centre block, the G6636TSL Silver Falcon is more suited to rock and powerful playing styles than a traditional White Falcon.

Body and Neck

Unlike the vintage design, this Falcon has a 16” wide body which is slightly smaller and features a chambered spruce centre block rather than the traditional fully-hollow design. This results in a body that still has a warm, resonant tone but with more control over feedback. So you can turn up the gain and take full advantage of that punchy midrange sound without worrying about unwanted feedback.

The neck has a maple construction with a  “Standard ‘U’” profile that fills the hand comfortably. The 12” ebony fretboard has a premium look and feel that’s comfortable for playing chords and solos.

Electronics and Hardware

At the heart of this guitar are two High Sensitive Filter’Tron humbuckers. Filter’Trons are the key to that instantly recognisable Gretsch tone. Filter’Trons approach single-coils in their clarity and note-definition but they’re still humbuckers so you’ve got plenty of warmth and power. As such, Filter’Trons are incredibly versatile, from smooth jazz tones through to biting rock tones that really cut through, Filter’Trons can handle it all.

This Falcon comes fitted with a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece which not only adds to that retro Gretsch charm, it lets you add subtle, vintage-style vibrato into your playing.
