UNRESERVED. Serial#: 50123. The White Falcon is a high-end electric hollowbody guitar introduced in 1954 by Gretsch. Created as a "showpiece" exhibiting the craft of Gretsch's luthiers, sales and demonstration representative Jimmie Webster created it for the 1954 NAMM Show, where the guitar was so popular that it was put into production and went on sale the following year. Throughout the years certain features have changed such as the double cutaway, which first appeared in 1962.

The two control knobs come each with a ruby imbedded in them, and the guitar is in its original case.
