    Had this imported from the US as i got a good price on it from a dealer.
    Sold a few guitars recently, and one day i thought i want a Gretsch, and ive always had something for the White Falcon. Lets face it, it is something of an institution. Shopped around, haggled with this guy, and now it is in my front room. I even changed the decor in my front room to match.

    This man and that guitar were a big part of my life in 1985.
