1959 Gretsch 6136 White Falcon

With maybe less than 300 single cut White Falcons made 1955-1960 this is perhaps the rarest production guitar of them all. Each one of the 300 viewed as a one off guitar with variations throughout. This one has a 2 1/2 inch body depth for the 1960 model year and is light trestle braced which gives it an agile feel for the large 17 inch body width. The sparkle binding is in generally good shape with some cracks to it as you would expect and i see one section replace on the neck. Unusually the control  knobs do not have the jewels but you can clearly see they have been on the guitar from the beginning as the patina matches exactly. The pictures tell the story so please don’t hesitate to contact with any questions. It comes in what looks to be a period Guild case.
