Description

This is one of the coolest, rarest & maybe the last example of the most desirable single cutaway White Falcon’s ever produced, its the final iteration of the most sought after guitar in the World, its original White finish has yellowed w/age having had some clear lacquer oversprayed by its 1st & only owner sometime in the late 90’s, its yellowed patina has a beautiful appearance, equipped with a rare set of bad ass sounding “Project-O-Sonic”  Filter’tron pickups w/factory Stereo wiring that separate the 3 pole pieces on the left side of each pickup from its 3 pole pieces on the right side of each pickup making a full active stereo that could be used with 2 separate amplifiers, complete with its huge array of switches & knobs, its original Grover Imperial Tuners have 2 replaced tuner shafts but the original 2 shafts are now in its case, nice gold sculpted pickup surrounds, super clean Gold lucite pickgard w/its Falcon motif, a Roller Bridge, 2 Pearl & Ruby inlaid knobs & mute flippers & lastly, the infamous cool breeze Cadillac “G” Tailpiece, its beautiful super wide fingerboard has “Neo-Classic” thumbprint inlays, its one of the most unusual examples taking in the very last of the single cutaway designs & the 1st of the double cutaway design features i.e. ultra thin 1 7/8″ body thickness, Double Flipper Mutes & the very 1st type Gretsch factory White vinyl back pad, we have never seen nor heard of one like this ever w/these features & it may be the only one ever produced exactly like it, other than some pieces of its Gold Sparkle body binding that have been replaced & restored as a few areas had crystallized a bit, this is one sweet & crazy rare original White Falcon, she is in excellent overall shape & comes with its original Gray “polka dot” hard case.
