    Well, I had searched for a limited run Falcon for a while but couldn’t find what I was looking for and the new RR Magpie doesn’t drop until February. I had owned a Black Falcon some time ago and loved it. Started looking at newer models and realized if I wanted a new one, it would need to be a center block or players edition since the VS are only white. Rocky at StreetSounds hooked me up with a great deal on a NOS. Bad picture, haven’t even had the chance to plug it in yet but man she is beautiful and the body isn’t nearly as thin as I was worried it would be. I think the original double cut falcon was even thinner. Anyway, it’s great to have a Gretsch back in the house.

    Congratulations on a fantastic guitar, yes the white falcons and penguins do look flash but nothing has more class then the black versions, they are seriously pieces of art.
    Happy playing.

    After putting it through its paces some of my original concern with the Players Edition body has been put at ease as this has a deep tone to it. Very pleased that this is the case since the depth of sound is something that I always loved about my 2012 BF. These are great guitars. Which sounds obvious but having not played the PEs I was a little worried.

    great guitar. I have the double cut PE made in Japan and it also is a great guitar which looks even more beautiful with the Chet Atkins arm that I put on it. the HS Filtertrons just sound amazing.

    I agree, I have the PE 6120, and love the fullness, richness of the tone.
