Over the top and super deluxe! This White Falcon represents the best of the Gretsch line. Super expensive in their day, originals are rare and coveted by players and collectors. All of the White Falcon trademarks are here. The single cutaway, hollow body is made of laminated maple for woody tone. The maple neck features a bound ebony fingerboard with humpblock inlays. Gold sparkle binding adorns this instrument adding to its deluxe looks. Dual Filtertron pickups offer a variety of tones. The famous Cadillac G tailpiece, sealed tuners and a Space Control bridge keep it rock solid. The finish is gorgeous white set off by gold hardware. An incredible looking instrument that will delight many players and collectors.

This Falcon plays well and sounds nice. The neck is straight, the action is good and the frets are fine. The pickups sound great and the electronics work as they should. A very cool Gretsch. Condition wise, this is a nice used instrument. It shows light pick and clearcoat scratches, some gold fade, and light indents. There's a spot in the finish near the top strap button that looks to have been where the finish reacted to a strap. Impossible for me to photograph but I can feel it with my fingers. Not a big deal at all in the end. Comes in original case with some case candy.

It doesn't get much better than a Falcon. As deluxe as it gets and the crown jewel of the Gretsch lineup. You will be seen as well as heard sporting this guitar. $3100 at the superstores, here's a cool one for less.
