An innovative version of the venerable Falcon design.
The Gretsch Professional Collection introduces an innovative version of the venerable Falcon design with the arrival of the G6139 Falcon Center-Block Single Cut-Away guitar. It features a beautiful 1 ¾"-deep single-cutaway three-ply maple body with a 16"-lower bout, arched top and back, multi-ply sparkle appointments and oversized f holes. The centerpiece of the model is a long spruce center block.
The center block runs the entire length of the body and imparts several sonic advantages. First, it minimizes body-resonant feedback and allows a more "high gain-friendly" performance. Second, it's made of spruce, which produces a spirited, lively tone. Third, the center block itself is chambered at the lower bout to minimize weight. Fourth, the pinned wood bridge base extends over the sides of the center block about 5/8" on either side, transferring string-vibration energy to the two f-hole-vented body chambers to produce a rich and full-bodied tone.
Other premium features include a three-piece maple neck; 12"-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid Neo-Classic "thumbnail" inlays and multi-ply sparkle appointments; Gretsch "winged/vertical" sparkle logo; and dual High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups. The guitar also has jeweled-arrow knobs and gold hardware, an Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned ebony base and Cadillac "G" tailpiece, Grover Imperial tuners and Schaller strap locks. Deluxe hard-shell case included.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6139-CB White Falcon Center Block:
Absolutely LOVE this guitar! I've been playing rock and roll for more than 40 years and have built up a nice collection of instruments, but this Falcon is now my go-to guitar.
I have to admit that I would be interested to hear how it would sound with a set of TV Jones pups in it but I'm happy with the Filtertrons.
