    I got my first Gretsch six months ago. It's a Chet Atkins 6120 with T-Armond pickups. After falling totally in love with it, I wanted to get a Gretsch with Filtertrons. After researching for a couple of months, I decided to get this Midnight Sapphire Falcon.
    I think the Falcon is an amazing guitar. I was surprised at the amount of sustain it has. It reminds me of a solid body. I wasn't expecting this. I'm just blown away by the amount of tones it has. I love the midnight sapphire finish which varies under different light. IMG_9292.JPG IMG_9296.JPG IMG_9300.JPG IMG_9307 2.JPG

    Congratulations on a beauty. I'd love to see pictures in sunlight to really see that top sparkle.

    Absolutely beautiful! That finish is gorgeous. You can't go wrong with a blue Gretsch.

    Very elegant nice piece
    After I got my Nashville the Duo Jet was a few months later I think a Falcon would fit nicely

    Wow, where did you find that one? I think that the Midnight Sapphire metallic is one of the nicest Gretsch colors in their pallet. Thanks for sharing.

    They are stunning.

    A DS 6120 and a Filtertron Falcon. Looks like you've got the bases covered. I like them both.

    Congratulations! The more I play and the older I get the more I think I could use a good Falcon. The 25.5" scale length and big body sound so good.
