Gretsch Guitars

Description

The G6636T-RF Richard Fortus Falcon is the signature guitar of the American guitarist. With a multitude of projects over the years headlined by a nearly two-decade stint with rock powerhouse Guns N’ Roses, Richard Fortus is one of the most respected guitarists in the world. True to his specifications, the G6636T-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon features a resonant double-cutaway maple body with a lightweight chambered spruce center block running throughout, reinforcing the arched laminate top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance. The U shaped maple neck and ebony fingerboard provide easy playability with enhanced sustain and tone, perfect for deep bends and soaring leads.

Guitarists with Fortus’ shape-shifting talents demand versatility in their instruments to remain on top of their game, which is why a set of Custom Wound Filter’Tron pickups in the bridge and neck positions fit perfectly. A master volume with treble bleed circuit allows you to throttle your amp without sacrificing your dialed-in tone, while a master tone with a no-load pot provides that organic vintage ‘Tron feel at the twist of a knob. Switch between pickup combinations with a three-way toggle switch, while a string-thru Bigsby couples with a TonePros Tune-o-matic bridge with roller saddles and pinned ebony base to offer stability, lightning-fast string changes and added expressiveness. A Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut also minimizes friction between string and nut. A player-centric instrument ready to rock any genre, the G6636T-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon is decked out with nickel hardware including jeweled G-arrow knobs, pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays and a tortoise headstock logo, binding, bezels and pickguard.
