Gretsch G7539T Billy Duffy White Falcon

Gretsch G7539T Billy Duffy White Falcon

Gretsch release the G7593T Billy Duffy White Falcon guitar, which has immediately become one of the most unique and bewitching White Falcon guitars ever made. Featuring much of what Falcon fans hold dear, The Cult guitarist’s inimitable instrument has several unique aesthetic differences that separate it from the rest of the “Falcon” flock, namely its period-correct ’70s Baldwin-era styling, pure White gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, V-shaped Falcon headstock, Silver Sparkle binding, custom wound hot “Black Top” Filter’Tron pickups with three-point adjustable ’70s-style metal bezels and Duffy’s preferred Bigsby tailpiece.

Gretsch G7539T Billy Duffy White Falcon

“This guitar is very personal to me. It’s hard to separate the guitar from the evolution of (The Cult’s) sound. In essence, the big white Gretsch became synonymous with the band very quickly. I’m not really that much of a sentimental person, but in a house fire it would be the first non-living thing that I’d be going for” – Billy Duffy
