    Hey y'all, I'm selling my 2016 White Falcon that I bought brand new from Street Sounds. This is the successor to the LDS model, in Gretsch's current Vintage Select series (originally called "Golden Era" before some legal issues forced them to rename the line). What differentiates this current model from previous iterations is fully hollowbody construction, a spruce top, and TV Jones T-Armond pickups. Because the thought of having a Gretsch witout a Bigsby perplexes me, I had Rocky from Street Sounds install a bigsby before he shipped it out to me. It uses the existing screw holes from the cadillac G tailpiece, which is included, so you can revert back to the floating bridge if it suits you. I've also wrapped both pickup's pole piece height adjustment screws/springs in a rubber band to minimize microphonics. The guitar has one minor ding near the bridge but I can't find any other significant wear on it. It has never been gigged. It simply doesn't get played as much as it deserves so I'd like to see it go to a good home. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!
    Asking $2800 plus shipping

  4. They should put a photo of that in the dictionary next to the word bling. That has major bling. Very nice. I also have a guitar that doesnt get the play it should. Mine is due to me not wanting to scratch it in case i ever sell it. So in the case it sits. Good luck with the sale. Unless you need another expensive guitar someone doesn’t play, then hit me up.

  6. This is defiantly a gas builder. I believe it has a solid top instead of laminate. Makes me want to sell off gear. Someone take this away before there is damage

    I believe you're correct on it being a solid spruce top.

    Price drop to $2500 for a limited time only. I have an offer thru Reverb but wanted to give everyone a last chance here.

    Why can’t it be this side of the pond.....keep staring at this... obsessively.
     
  18. Reverb offers can be as painful to look at as Craigslist offers. Hope is works out.
