he one owner of this beautiful "Golden Years" Gretsch, a true working musician, played the scene in and around Indianapolis for decades. Everyone loved seeing this guitar on stage...a little too much. The owner was scared someone would try to steal it, so he purchased a 1962 Country Gentleman (sold) as his main guitar and put this White Falcon away in a safe place.
We are sure glad he did.
While in hand, Gretsch Representative and private collector Ron Mancuso described this White Falcon as "dead mint".
This is a true, all original 1959 White Falcon. There is no finish checking anywhere on the guitar. This guitar has not been refinished. The face of the headstock has yellowed slightly but the rest of the guitar is bright white. The gold hardware has not been replated. Only the back of the tuners show minimal loss of gold plating. The playability of this guitar is excellent. There is little to no wear on the original frets and the neck is perfectly adjustable. The pickups are very strong and all pots and input jack are working just as they should.
