An affordable falcon? Ok I’ll do that. Had it a few days now and I’m really liking it. She’s not as flashy as other falcons, who needs flash when you sound like that! The Ray Butts pickups are phenomenal.

    That’s a lovely blue that I’m sure will have a few fans in the GT house. Congratulations!

    A beauty, and truly rare Bird! From the thread title, I thought you were selling it. Happy to see I was wrong.

    Just saw one of these in the Hollywood Guitar Center on my way to hunting for something else, I was surprised to see it sported Ray Butts! Congratulations it’s a stunning Falcon!

    That's a great color. Nice shopping inflation, go for the streamliner, come back with a falcon.
