Gretsch is celebrating its 140th anniversary in a big way. Two times the platinum, with plenty of guitars. This one is the Limited Edition G6136T-140 LTD 140th Double Platinum Falcon.
Born into Gretsch’s Professional Collection, this Falcon features many of the brand’s classic specs and appointments. Filter’Tron pickups, a maple neck with 12” radius ebony fingerboard, an Adjusto-matic bridge with an ebony base, and a Bigsby tailpiece, just to name a few. Though similar in so many ways to its relatives, this guitar does have some defining characteristics that make it stand out from the rest.
Typically, you would find a laminated maple top on a G6136T, and a majority of Grestch models in fact. This limited Falcon sports a solid Adirondack Red Spruce top, which is commonly used on high-end acoustics. Stiff and resonant with plenty of headroom, this Addy spruce is ready to be broken in to sound even more impressive over time. Its dynamic range is greater than many of its comparable guitar tops, making it a fine pairing with this guitar’s hollow body.
In addition to its special spruce treatment, this celebratory Falcon's nitro finish is Two-Tone Stone Platinum over Pure Platinum. Double Platinum Anniversary calls for a guitar matching in color, does it not? To add to the limited goodness, a commemorative head plaque crowns this Falcon, and matches the rest of the dazzling chrome hardware. This collector’s piece encompasses Gretsch’s past while inspiring the players of today and is one of their most stunning limited releases to date.
