    As others have mentioned there is quite a few black gretschs to chose from, i like the black 6120s and own a black penguin.

    To be 100% honest though, as much as i like the look of anything black, part of me hates owning it as im just to ocd with keeping marks/dust/fingerprints and all that off black things, doesn't stop me i just have to be in the mood to use black things as i know i have to clean them straight after.

    Here’s my black Gretsch. It’s a 2004 6120 DC in black. It was originally owned by a Fender employee and I was told that there were few, if any others made in the modern era. It’s a Dyna Gakki instrument and only weighs about 7 pounds. It’s a very sweet sounding Gretsch, with a slightly stronger midrange than single cutaway 6120s. It’s one of the nicest playing guitars I have ever had in my hands.

    There’s always the black Setzer Nashville...


    The older black Setzer Hot Rod. Or even the Steve Wariner


    Or a black Rat Rod for something more affordable.

    Black Gretsch are hot.
    I would go with a Black Panther if I have the money, but there’s also a mid 60s model called Blackhawk (if my memory serves me well) with the same features as my Rally but on black and white finish. Very classy!

    Oh man!
    I don’t need another Falcon, but if I were to get one, I’d want the same model as yours.

    I have the white version, and it’s the best guitar in the world.

    The Silver Falcon is actually my second, I sold the first in a fit of madness over ten years ago, took almost that long to find another that wasn’t at an over inflated price. Both are players, both get well used.
