The seductively dark G6136T Players Edition Black Falcon with String-Thru Bigsby offers all the classic Falcon elements, in a stealthy finish. Iconic style and richly robust Gretsch tone cuts through a dense onstage mix, ensuring you’ll stand out from the pack, both sonically and visually. The epitome of style, this elegant instrument sings out loud and proud with every touch of the strings.

A pair of High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups graces the laminated maple body, providing pristine highs, glassy mids, stout lows and balanced harmonics for tone that blends well with other instruments, while retaining its unique voice. The control complement— separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, No Load master tone and master volume—allows for infinite tonal variations. Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down. A 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and striking pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays tops a maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard “U”-shaped profile for fluidly easy playing. The innovative Gretsch “ML” bracing is specifically voiced for this guitar, and delivers increased projection and airy openness from the thinner 2.25” body. A highly expressive Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned “rocking” bar bridge combine with the GraphTech® Tusq XL nut for stable tuning. In a uniquely Gretsch touch, the Bigsby tailpiece is now string-through, making it quicker (and easier) to change strings as well as providing increased vibration transfer for enhanced sustain.

Eye-catching and head-turning, this Black Falcon displays sheer bling—from the shining gold Grover® Imperial™ locking tuning machines and gold jeweled “G Arrow” control knobs to the gold sparkle bound neck, body and F Hole binding, black gloss urethane finish and gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo. A study in light and dark, the G6136T Players Edition Black Falcon with String-Thru Bigsby proudly exhibits every bit of the splendor and sonic style that made the Falcons famous. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.
