    Wow, I mean, WOW!
    Congratulations.

    How did it come that unexpected?

    What a great guitar, congrats!

    The Space Controller Bridge and H.S. Filter'Trons are aces in my book, have them on my Annie and Sparkle Jet.

    Your Falcon has most of the features I'd want if I were to spring for one. Mud switch, vertical logo and those beautiful engraved feather fretboard inlays. What a stunner!

    Ha!
    Looking back on it, yeah, sometimes I say some ridiculous things.
    Who am I trying to convince?! You guys or myself?!
    :D

    How he got in my pajamas, I don’t know.

    Yessir! This is why I opted for this one. It has all the stuff I want from a Falcon in the looks department. It’s the most ridiculous, and impractical guitar I’ve ever owned!

    After playing it for a few hours last night, I did decide slap on my spare gold brass rocking bar bridge. It was an improvement in tone and feeling. I really like the look of the space control. I think it rolls really well with the bigsby, but the bar just has better tone and sustain.

    Congrats Caleb!

    For many of us, the White Falcon is the ultimate hollowbody. How cool that you had a chance to scratch that itch!

    Killer, lemmy add to the fiddle rosin recommendations, I've had it on my 5120 for years and the bridge has never moved.

    Thanx Wildeman. I think I’ll order some today. It’s where it’s supposed to be now, but I’m sure I’ll be putting some new strings on in a few weeks. I’ll make it happen then.

    Congrats Caleb!

    I have never gotten around to replacing the Space Control on my 03 Falcon,it's been fine,even though i know a Tru-Arc would much better,maybe some day.

    Yeah, the gold rocking bar I put on is great for now.
    On the other gretsch forum, Tim recommended that if I can’t live without a stainless steel serpentune, I could try the gold spray paint that’s used on brass instruments. It wouldn’t be permanent, but at least it’d be Gold!
    I do love a stainless steel tru-arc!
