    I received this Black Beauty yesterday afternoon from Rocky at Street Sounds. She's a 2019 "Players Edition" Black Falcon, and she feels and plays wonderful right our of the box, after a minor setup tweak. At one time I had a Red Falcon, which was also a fantastic guitar, but had the larger body depth, and of course the mud switch. I really appreciate the narrower body depth and so set out for a "Players" when I decided to get another Falcon. And black with the gold trim is the bomb on these guitars.

    I got this guitar sold by Rocky, but through Reverb. He indicated it is 2019 new old stock, and the price was excellent. Interestingly, I found that Rocky will list the same model on both Reverb and E-Bay, but the
    Ebay price is higher, presumably because they charge higher seller fees.

    Congratulations, the black and gold in my opinion makes for a more sophisticated guitar, i love the white and gold on penguins and falcons but the black is just something else, happy playing.

    She’s a looker for sure
    I have the Nashville PE and they are very comfortable to be sure.
    My 6128vs 59 was a new old stock from Rocky off of Reverb and if I were to buy another new Gretsch or Fender I will be looking to him first
    Congratulations

    Sweet! Enjoy her in good health. I have one too and I love it.

    In case you are wondering what it would look like without a pick guard
