    I'm selling a Black Falcon (6136DS) made in 2013. I sold the cadillac tailpiece and had a gold and black Bigsby B6 professionally installed. He did a great job with the finish touch up and it's perfectly aligned. It has no fret wear or scratches, but does show normal signs in the finish of having been played, although very little. It plays easily and sounds incredible, with a very open sound and response from the parallel tone bars and sound post. I'm posting here at a very good price before going to Reverb. Comes with the original case and I'll throw in a 4" wide cream Italia guitar strap.

    Reduced to $2400 USD shipped to the continental USA or Canada, (forum members only) and in addition to the creame colored strap, I'll throw in a 4" wide Italia leather strap in black with golden backing; matches the Falcon perfectly.

    Thanks guys. It seems like one has to be logged in to see the photos, which do appear in the post once logged in. I'll look into it and see what they are not appearing. They are in my media file, so it could be something in my settings. Thanks again.

    I'm obviously doing something wrong. I'll try another way. OK, I think I figured it out. I can see the photos now even when logged out. Hopefully others can too. Thanks for the help guys; much appreciated.

    Phew.... I'm glad. Yea, its a good one. If I was gigging all the time and could rotate more guitars I'd keep it.

    I believe that the Falkons have a 25.5" scale; those and the Country Clubs.

    Bump for the weekend. My heart still skips a beat when I look at these photos and I wish I could buy it.....but two falcons in a week would be financial ruin. Best of luck with the sale Roy

    I have this same Falcon minus the bigsby and I can tell you she will turn some heads. Such a beautiful guitar in person. Mine has extremely low action making it a very fast playing Gretsch with little effort to coax some serious tone. Good like with this. One last thing- Gretsch doesn’t make this bird with dynas anymore.
