Mike McCready’s Gretsch G6136T-59 White Falcon

Mike acquired this guitar sometime around 2013. He used the guitar occasionally live, usually on “Pendulum”, or “Off He Goes”.

I think my newest favorite one is the White Falcon, that’s a reissue. I just like how it looks – it’s pretty cool looking.

The guitar is the G6136T-59 model with a Bigsby tremolo and a pair of TV Jones Classic pickups. Normally, these guitars come equipped with a Bigsby B-6 vibrato, but Mike’s guitar for some reason has a B-3 version.
