The new Professional Collection ‘Center Block’ range is based on the iconic White Falcon, but is slimmer with a smaller body size to make it more manageable. The semi-acoustics are the thinnest guitars Gretsch has ever produced.

The guitars have ‘center blocks’ a solid spruce block down the middle which reduces feedback and makes them more suitable for high gain styles of playing. The spruce also gives a more ‘spirited’ tone.

There are single and double cutaway Falcon models and there is a Bigsby option on the double cutaway too. They feature oversized f holes, and are available in White with Gold Sparkle and Black with Silver Sparkle.

All the models - Falcon and Panther - feature dual High Sensitive Filter’Tron pickups, and a three-ply maple body, along with an Adjusto-Matic bridge.

The Panther is a double cutaway with Bigsby available in black or white. It has less dramatic styling than the Falcon, for those who want something that is more understated.

The model numbers are:
Panther G6137TCB
Falcon Single Cutaway G6139CB
Falcon Double Cutaway G6139T-CBDC
