From the Gretsch Artist Signature Edition Series, made in Japan, this versatile guitar features a black gloss finish on a Falcon body shape made of laminated maple with arched top and back, with center block bracing. It has a maple set neck with gloss finish and Standard "U" shape, an Ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Pearloid Neo-Classic Thumbnail inlays. The electronics feature two Custom Wound Filter'Tron pickups with master volume with treble bleed and master tone with no-load pot. It has tortoise pattern binding and white/black/white/black purfling, a tortoise pickguard with gold Gretsch logo and Falcon graphic, jeweled G-Arrow knobs, and Grover Rotomatic tuners. This guitar is in excellent condition. It has been professionally set up in our shop, and comes with the equally-clean Gretsch case, and lots of case candy.

Here's what the Gretsch website says about this guitar:

With a multitude of projects over the years headlined by a nearly two-decade stint with rock powerhouse Guns N’ Roses, Richard Fortus is one of the most respected guitarists in the world.

True to his dreams, the G6636-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon™ Center Block with V-Stoptail checks all the boxes. It begins with a resonant 1.75”-deep, 17”-wide double-cutaway maple body with a lightweight chambered spruce center block running throughout, reinforcing the arched laminate top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance that fits modern stages.

The 24.6” scale length, “U” shaped maple neck and 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets provide easy playability with enhanced sustain and tone, perfect for deep bends and soaring leads.

Guitarists with Fortus’ shape-shifting talents demand versatility in their instruments to remain on top of their game, which is why a set of Custom Wound Filter’Tron™ pickups in the bridge and neck positions fit perfectly.

A master volume with treble bleed circuit allows you to throttle your amp without sacrificing your dialed-in tone, while a master tone with a no-load pot provides that organic vintage ‘Tron feel at the twist of a knob. Switch between pickup combinations with a three-way toggle switch, while a V-stoptail couples with a TonePros® Tune-o-matic Bridge with standard saddles to offer rock-solid tuning and stability. A Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut also minimizes friction between string and nut.

A player-centric instrument ready to rock any genre, the G6636-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon Center Block with V-Stoptail comes in a striking Black finish and is decked out with nickel hardware including the jeweled G-arrow knobs, pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays and headstock logo and tortoise pickguard, pickup bezels and binding.
