The Gretsch® Professional Collection introduces an innovative version of the venerable Falcon design—the G6139 Falcon Center-Block Single Cutaway guitar'a centerpiece is a long spruce Center-Block. It features a beautiful 1 ¾”-deep single-cutaway three-ply maple body with a 16”-lower bout, arched top and back, multi-ply sparkle appointments and oversized F Holes.
The Center-Block runs the entire length of the body, imparting several sonic advantages. First, it minimizes body-resonant feedback and enables a more "high gain-friendly" performance. Second, it’s made of spruce, which produces a spirited, lively tone. Third, the Center-Block itself is chambered at the lower bout, minimizing weight. Fourth, the pinned wood bridge base extends approximately 5/8" over the sides of the Center-Block, transferring string energy to the two F Hole-vented body chambers for full-bodied tone.
Other premium features include a three-piece maple neck, 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid Neo-Classic™ “thumbnail” inlays and multi-ply sparkle appointments, Gretsch “winged/vertical” sparkle logo, and dual High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups. The guitar also has jeweled-arrow knobs and gold hardware, an Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with pinned ebony base and Cadillac® “G” tailpiece, Grover® Imperial™ tuners and Schaller® strap locks. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.
