    Some of the fsr falcon jrs are 16", same as a standard size hollow gretsches. Other juniors are usually 14", slightly wider than a jet or les Paul.

    Yes, I believe it puts it in the same measurement as a 5420. So in essence, a 5420 "Falcon" (due to the size). Same body depth, too at 2.5"

    But the JR in the video is smaller as a 5420, right?

    Yes, the one in the video is the same size as a 5420. 16" lower bout, 2.5" deep.

    I actually just got off the phone with Wildwood Guitars and placed the order for that junior. I thought that if I don't end up liking it, at least there are more Players Editions out there, while this specific model was a limited run of only 16 to Wildwood Guitars.

    I'll post pictures once it arrives :)

    Batman might not have done so well against The Falcon!;)

    To me it looked smaller, but ok ... nevertheless I'm curious about your experience report.

    Only 16? Wow.
