    Beautiful 2016 Gretsch Professional G6139CBSL Silver Falcon with original hard shell case and case candy. Guitar is set up perfectly with low action and no string buzz. Stays in perfect tune with the vintage style bone nut allowing the strings to slide freely without binding in the slots. Guitar is in near mint condition; I conservatively rate it 9.5/10. Still has the protective film on the pickguard. It is a deep black finish. It features a beautiful 1 ¾"-deep single-cutaway three-ply arched top and back maple body with a 16"-lower bout, multi-ply silver sparkle appointments and oversized f holes. Tailpiece has been replaced with a Gretsch Bigsby B6CVT and two screw holes left plugged with screws if anyone wants to reverse it and can be seen in the pics. ASKING $2400 no trades.

    The spruce center block runs the entire length of the body and is highly chambered for resonance and weight relief. It produces a spirited, lively tone and minimizes feedback allowing a more "high gain-friendly" performance. The pinned wood bridge base extends over the sides of the center block about 5/8" on either side, transferring string-vibration energy to the two oversized f-hole-vented body chambers to produce a rich and full-bodied tone.

    Maple neck; 12"-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid Neo-Classic "thumbnail" inlays and multi-ply silver sparkle binding; Gretsch "winged/vertical" silver sparkle logo; and dual High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups. The guitar also has jeweled-arrow knobs and chrome hardware, an Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned ebony base and Bigsby B6CVT tailpiece, Grover Imperial tuners and Schaller strap locks. Deluxe hard-shell case included.
