it's pretty nice but...

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6136TSL Silver Falcon Electric Guitar with Bigsby -- Black Finish:

Great Recording with it. Chet Atkins 6120 better for stage use and intonation. Neck Pickup Fat and Jazzy, Bridge has enough bite to seriously rock or play country licks. Made very well, which is typical of Made in Japan Guitars. I think the Chet Atkins 6120 is a better value at 1000 less. it sounds just as good and has better intonation. I'm not sure of the name, but the falcon has a roller type bridge which may be better for chords and whammy textures, but if you're gonna be soloing and playin up the neck, you'll need a different bridge set up. The sparkle binding is pretty amazing. Obviously this guitar looks amazing, and sounds great. A great guitar no doubt. I used one for a full length album. check samples on iTunes for Ry Bradley to hear it. I used a silver falcon on every track except Rythoven. I used a Marshall JCM 900, a fender 1966 Bassman, and a silverface Super reverb all at once with this great guitar.

The only guitar I ever want to play!

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6136TSL Silver Falcon Electric Guitar with Bigsby -- Black Finish:

Let me start by saying this guitar is beautiful! If I didn't have to be playing it all the time, I'd frame it and hang it on my wall. I love the filtertron pickups. They make it louder than my other guitars. It stays in tune wonderfully. I play all styles of music and find that this guitar can cover all genres. It even can handle "high gain" rock or punk with its own biting sound. Let me point out that this is a LARGE guitar. It dwarfs my Strat when sitting next to it. It's also heavy. Even though it is a cut away guitar, it is hard to play above the fifteenth fret due to the thickness of the guitar. It may take some getting used to. Overall it is the best sounding guitar I've ever played. The neck is smooth and the frets are large. I love the way 11's sound on it. It feels amazing.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6136TSL Silver Falcon Electric Guitar with Bigsby -- Black Finish:

This is the most beautiful toned guitar I've ever played. The fretboard is simply amazing, as is everythin on this guitar. you can really vary the sounds you get out of it with the pickup selection options and just by moving the knobs a small amount. I love this for blues, jazz, and rock, though at higher gains id prefer a solid body, but this guitar can do just about everything. Ive no complaints at all about it, oh and the bigsby is a nice addition.
