Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition

Maple has to be one of the most lively, bright, and colorful tonewoods out there, which is exactly why Gretsch decided to make their G6136T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 White Falcon almost entirely out of this wonderful wood. At Casino, we've found that this hollowbody's arched body yields a wonderfully snappy, open tone that, when combined with the dynamic sound of its TV Jones Classic pickups, cuts through a dense mix and sounds great in any situation.

TV Jones Classic pickups deliver timeless Gretsch tone

When you want that classic '50s-era Gretsch tone, you need real TV Jones humbuckers. That's why Gretsch gave their G6136T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 White Falcon a pair of TV Classic pickups. Designed to sound just like the humbuckers found in '50s and '60s Gretsch guitars, these pickups give your guitar a bright and open sound that's jangly on your highs with the kind of bite you'd normally associate with single-coil pickups. It's the perfect sound for rock, rockabilly, blues, country, and more.

Three volume controls + one tone switch = exceptional sonic flexibility

It's easy to stereotype the Gretsch G6136T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 White Falcon until you play it, and then you realize you can pull off a lot of tonal tricks with it. With a volume control for each pickup, you can create your perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The 3-way tone selector switch lets you fine-tune your sound once you have the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. Of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually, but there's a lot of territory to cover when you combine them.

Bigsby tailpiece yields smooth vibrato action

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the Gretsch G6136T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 White Falcon. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, this Bigsby Licensed tailpiece requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends.
