Good lord!  What a beauty!  This 2003 Gretsch 6136 White Falcon came out of a significant collection where it seems to have hid since it was new.  

The truss rod cover is adorned with Fred Gretsch's autograph in silver sharpie!

The guitar is in near mint condition, and in my opinion it is the best appointed Japanese made reissue of one of the coolest guitar models of all time.

Free of changes, repairs or issues, it plays like a dream with low action.  The truss rod has room for future neck relief adjustments.

Original case included.  No paperwork.
