I was first attracted to the White Falcon because of The Cult's Billy Duffy. I bought the model he played - the 7593 - and sometimes play it with the gear he used (Boss OD pedal and Roland Jazz Chorus).

Yeah, I have mine strung with flatwounds and it can give the smoothest, warmest jazz tones. I bought mine for rock, but you can do much more with her.

Ahh, you installed a Chet arm. Chet arms not only look cool, but they fit the hand perfectly. I like mine.

Well, if you want to be in the club, quit posting youtube videos and go out and buy a Falcon!




Sounds cool what is being done on that Falcon. What a great instrument to accompany oneself with.

Yeah, I kind of figured that out.
Have to say, it's very impressive. Real good stuff in the playing and singing, and great tone from that Falcon.

Thank you Taxer...it's a great guitar! It works great for what I do...I also find it to be very versatile with the various tonal options...I love mine so much, it changed my life as a musician, completely...I still have a Telecaster, my first true love but I only take it out for playing funk nowadays...

Have to say, you don't play it like a Falcon. What you are doing in that video is not what most do with a Falcon. That's what makes that performance real good. I like how the warmth of the intro with its Bigsby waves goes into a percussive rhythm. No kidding around, very impressive performance overall. Plus the Falcon is great visually for what you are doing. The white and gold of the Falcon adds a touch of class to your performance.

You should post that video over at the Gretsch forums. Even though 99% of the folks over there think a Gretsch is just for guys wearing bowling shirts with greased ducktail haircuts, I think people will dig it there.

Thank you taxer, you really get what this performance was about...I'm glad someone does...I am very interested in using instruments outside of what the style they're supposed to represent!

I get what you're saying, people associate Gretsch with rockabilly but these guitars can be used for so much more!

You should check out more of my music, I posted heaps of videos on my channel...featuring the Falcon & my Rick 12...My album is on the way too!

Great playing and singing. Not everyone on the Gretsch site plays rockabilly. I use my Gretsch for rock and blues. The players there would appreciate your video very much. I don't own a bowling shirt either.

Thanks Martin82. I think I have posted the video there last year to great reception, the folks there are nice, also many talented players, both rockabilly and non rockabilly...

I have to say, though my music is not rockabilly at all, I do appreciate that style a lot. I wanted to recommend you guys the Stray Cats - Rumble in Brixton DVD. If you are a Gretsch fan, trust me there is nothing better you will ever see or hear.
