Rock Shape-Shifting Versatility With The Gretsch G6636T-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon™ Electric Guitar With Center Block, String-thru Bigsby® & Ebony Fingerboard In Vintage White

Following his nearly two-decade stint with Guns N’ Roses, Richard Fortus is one of the most respected guitarists in the world. That kind of shape-shifting talent demands versatility from the instrument to remain on top of the game. A set of Custom Wound Filter’Tron™ pickups in the bridge and neck positions fit the bill perfectly.

Checking The Boxes

The Richard Fortus Signature Falcon™ checks all the boxes. It begins with a resonant 1.75”-deep, 17”-wide double-cutaway maple body with a lightweight chambered spruce center block running throughout, reinforcing the arched laminate top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance that fits modern stages.

The 25.5” scale length, “U” shaped maple neck and 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets provide easy playability with enhanced sustain and tone, perfect for deep bends and soaring leads.

The master volume with treble bleed circuit allows the player to throttle the amp without sacrificing dialed-in tone, while a master tone with a no-load pot provides that organic vintage ‘Tron feel at the twist of a knob. Switch between pickup combinations with a three-way toggle switch, while a string-thru Bigsby couples with a TonePros® Tune-o-matic bridge with roller saddles and pinned ebony base to offer stability, lightning-fast string changes and added expressiveness. A Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut means minimal friction between string and nut.

Player-centric and ready to rock any genre, the G6636T-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon Center Block with String-Thru Bigsby comes in a stunning Vintage White finish and is decked out with nickel hardware including the jeweled G-arrow knobs, pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays and tortoise headstock logo, binding, bezels and pickguard.
