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.
