Gretsch has launched its new G6136T-MGC Michael Guy Chislett Signature Falcon guitar.

The elegant hollowbody – which the company first teased this past summer – was built to the exacting specifications of the veteran Australian guitarist, whose credits include time with Pete Yorn, Good Charlotte, and Pistol Youth, among many others.

The guitar features a laminated maple body and a solid Sitka spruce top with bound F-holes and vintage 1959-style trestle bracing. Its semi-gloss maple neck has a 12-inch-radius ebony fingerboard featuring pearloid Big Block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets. 

Sonically, the guitar has TV Jones TV Classic pickups, a three-way toggle switch, individual pickup volume controls, plus a master tone and a master volume with a treble bleed circuit with Squeezebox paper-in-oil capacitors.

There’s also a Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and an Adjusto-Matic bridge with an ebony base and bone nut. 

“I reached out to the guys because I felt like there wasn’t a White Falcon that resembled the one I played," Chislett said of the guitar. "To have them offer to make me a new one was pretty exciting in itself. 

"I grew up idolizing Brian Setzer – I even have a tattoo – and guys like George Harrison. I never would have even dreamed of having a signature model; it is pretty crazy to me still, and I am just incredibly honored.”

The Gretsch G6136T-MGC Michael Guy Chislett Signature Falcon is available now – in a Vintage White gloss lacquer finish with gold sparkle binding, a gold pickguard, and gold hardware – for $3,799.
