The guitars conceived and produced by the Gretsch Company after WWII represent some of the more unique sounding and visually dynamic models available during the ''50s and into the mid-''60s.
'58 White Falcon model 6136
The White Falcon model 6136 was originally conceived by the Gretsch Company's Jimmie Webster to be an eye-catching instrument he could use as he promoted Gretsch guitars around the country. Subsequently, it became a top-of-the-line production model, albeit sparsely produced, between 1955 and early 1960 (single-cutaway). Produced as a double-cutaway model through the 1960s, the first generation design has since become iconic. (Guitar courtesy of Dave Rogers, photo by Tim Mullally)
