The Gretsch White Falcon needs no introduction. Seen and known by the music community worldwide, the White Falcon stands above the rest being the ultimate in high-end desirability.
If you’ve never seen one up close, then you’re in for a treat. The gold hardware and bling may not be for everyone, but these guitars are works of art, not just instruments.
The Gretsch White Falcon is a high-end electric hollowbody guitar introduced in 1954 by Gretsch. Created as a “showpiece” exhibiting the craftsmanship of Gretsch’s luthiers, it was specifically designed for the 1954 NAMM Show. The guitar proved such a hit that it was taken into production, went on sale the following year, and has been an icon ever since.
Whilst they may have their origins in country music, the modern guitars are incredibly versatile and can be seen anywhere from Brian Setzer (Stray Cats), to Chris Cheney (Living End), to Korel Tunador (Katy Perry’s band).
This is a guitar that is on everyone’s bucket list, but don’t wait until you have retired to afford it. If you are wanting a guitar that can do it all and will give your band some attention, come in and see the boys at Music Workshop today and play the guitar that you’ll never want to put down again.
