I Say:

Oh Boy  – I do love this!

I bought my first White Falcon with money my Dad left to me when he passed away.  I later bought a Black Falcon, but couldn’t get on with the Dynasonic pickups.  I had a Steve Stills White Falcon that I regret selling, and now this.

The Double cutaway look is awesome, the switching options are plentiful, the rear pad is kind of weird, but on the whole the look is superb.  I’m struggling to find a mark on this guitar other than one small scuff on the rear pad.

The electronics and hardware are all original, with little to no wear on the gold hardware.  Some minor pitting on the Bigsby term arm.

The pickups are bright and twangy just like they should be, otherwise all electronics are clean and clear.

The Gretsch hardcase is also in near perfect condition.  All clasps and catches fully functional.

There’s even a plethora of original paperwork included.

This guitar costs $4800 on Gretsch’s website – so I figure that my asking price is more than reasonable!
