2019 Gretsch Vintage Select '59 White Falcon G6136T-59 VS Near-Mint w/ Case, COA, Tags


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2019 Gretsch G6136T-59VS White Falcon Vintage Select ‘59 Edition in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, CoA, hangtags, and case candy. This premium iteration of the White Falcon platform is exceedingly faithful to vintage spec, delivering traditional aesthetics and an array of vital, golden age Gretsch tonalities. Premium features include a pair of USA-made TV Jones Classic Filter’Tron humbuckers, a Vintage White nitro lacquer finish, and gold hardware including a Bigsby B6GVT vibrato and jeweled "G" pointer knobs.

Tonewoods include a ‘59-style trestle-braced fully hollow maple body, and a maple neck capped with a bound ebony fingerboard. Acoustically, the instrument has a bold, sonically deep natural acoustic tone with the glassy snap and immediacy attributable to the tonewoods and trestle bracing. The pair of TV Jones Classic Filter’Tron pickups have notable clarity, sparkle and muscle; the neck position Filter'Tron humbucker has a thick, silky tone, while the bridge position offers a cutting growl, midrange punch, and excellent note attack. Weighing 8lbs 6oz, this White Falcon has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar with 11-49 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The gloss Vintage White nitro lacquer finish is framed by gold sparkle binding on the top, back, and F holes. Exceedingly well-kept and sparingly played, cosmetic wear is limited to just a few faint finish scratches in the clear coat on the back. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is immaculate.

The original black tolex hardshell case is included, along with the CoA, all hangtags, and a matching bejeweled white leather strap embossed with Gretsch’s classic “cactus and cows” design.
