Gretsch G6139T-CBDC White Falcon Center Block with Bigsby, Double Cutaway, Ebony Fingerboard, White 2400800806
An innovative version of the venerable Falcon, the Gretsch Professional Collection G6139T-CBDC Falcon Center-Block Double Cut-Away guitar's centerpiece is a long spruce Center-Block. It features a beautiful 1 _"-deep double-cutaway three-ply maple body with a 16" lower bout, arched top and back, multi-ply sparkle appointments and oversized F Holes.
The Center-Block runs the entire length of the body, imparting several sonic advantages. First, it minimizes body-resonant feedback and enables a more "high gain-friendly" performance. Second, itÍs made of spruce, which produces a spirited, lively tone. Third, the Center-Block itself is chambered at the lower bout, minimizing weight. Fourth, the pinned wood bridge base extends approximately 5/8" over the sides of the Center-Block, transferring string energy to the two F Hole-vented body chambers for full-bodied tone.
