Maybe some day I will understand Gretsch’s naming convention, but who cares… they make some of the coolest looking guitars out there!
My main motivation for buying Gretsch’s is to get closer to Malcolm’s sound, I already have his number one copy… but I’ve been searching for a White Falcon for years! Well.. not THE white falcon, but something that would get me there without breaking the bank.
How cool is this?! These are limited editions of the G5422TG as you can still buy new in other colours but not in White.
It’s a hollow body with a center block which is where the pickups go, in theory this helps with feedback problems and fattens up the sound.
It just looks like a White Falcon, however… it’s much mush smaller, it really is like a little brother version of the WF, this doesn’t take anything away of how good this sounds and plays. Like every Gretsch, it was great out of the box and ready to rock.
