I'm very happy with this two beauties!
Great photo of your beauties .... Do I see a Marantz also ?
Thank you Robbie!
Thank you very much! ... Is a 1977 Marantz 2226b. I have connected a 1972 Thorens TD-125 MKII Turntable and Tannoy (mid '70s) speakers
Very nice. They look to have the same pickups. Do they have the same sound or are they different?
Both offer that distinctive Gretsch sound but are two completely different animals.
The Falcon has a longer scale legh (25.5” vs 24,6” of the 6120) and more big body (17” vs 16” of the 6120). More depth body too (2.75” vs 2.5” of the 6120),
I can see the 6120 has inside a solid piece of wood down the bridge (joint the top and back) and the Falcon don’t have this. Alone 2 parallel tone bars reinforce the solid spruce top. Is a big open box.
Rosewood fingerboard for the 6120 vs ebony in the Falcon.
For me the Falcon offer a little more richness, fat and twang sound.
Both guitars in a nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Two beauties Georgie !
I have the earlier versions , DSW 6120 and DS Falcon ,i almost traded my DSW for a 55 VS a few years ago.
What a stunningly beautiful pair of Gretsches! Man, that's got to put a smile on your face walking into a room with those two guitars!
Super-nice couple. Congrats.
Great looking guitars you have there, congrats.
Awesome! I had a Thorens TD-125 back in the '70s and a pair of Tannoy Monitor Gold 15"s in corner rear loaded horn enclosures.
Very nice pair. I would be happy to own either of them.
Those Vintage Select guitars are just awesome. I have the VS 59 Country Club and sounds and plays great.
Very nice mate.
