Overview

The G6136T-59 Vintage Select Edition '59 Falcon Hollowbody with Bigsby combines period-accurate features and appointments from the golden age of electric guitars. Satisfying eyes and ears with its golden tones and gleaming looks, this rare bird comes alive in the player’s hands, singing with its distinctive voice at every strum.

A pair of TV Jones Classic pickups generates powerful tone and unparalleled dynamics. The new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors provide an incredibly silky high end. Add some expressive shimmer to your playing with the Bigsby B6GVT vibrato tailpiece while the pinned Space Control bridge and bone nut combine for impeccable tuning stability.

A highly resonant 3-ply maple top with 1959-style trestle bracing and multi-ply laminated maple back and sides make this instrument a veritable cannon, firing off notes with incredible projection and rich, balanced tone. A maple neck with a comfortable and versatile standard “U”-shaped profile for supple playability is capped by a 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and classic Gretsch thumbnail inlays, making complex chords, far-reaching bends and intricate single-note playing effortless.

Authentically iconic, this striking guitar displays gold hardware—including the gold jeweled “G Arrow” knobs— gold sparkle bound neck, body and F Holes, vintage white gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo. With its stunning looks and huge sound, the iconic G6136T-59 Vintage Select Edition '59 Falcon Hollowbody with Bigsby is the crown jewel of Gretsch guitars. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.

MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY
Gretsch® Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument. To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable warranty period. Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any Gretsch instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to FMIC from an Authorized Service Center for alternative considerations. All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.
