You are looking at a Gretsch G7593T Billy Duffy Falcon Signature Hollow Body Electric Guitar, serial number JT13115344. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 2.3 oz.)

Billy Duffy is not afraid to make a statement, and few things make a bolder statement than Duffy wielding his Gretsch White Falcon under the stage lights with British rock legends The Cult. Duffy burst out of London’s early '80s post-punk scene in Theatre of Hate before meeting Ian Astbury and forming one of rock 'n' roll’s most powerful, unique and long-lasting duos as what would become The Cult. Duffy's combination of thick power chords steeped in rich chorused delay, melodic Morricone-inspired lead phrases and filthy feedback-laden solos created an unparalleled sound larger than most venues could contain.

The Cult’s first two albums, Dreamtime and Love, solidified their place among the pre-"alternative" elite, with the latter album featuring what would become their most popular single, "She Sells Sanctuary", which remains a global staple on rock radio twenty years on and was even featured on a 2012 Super Bowl advertisement in the States. Every track on those iconic albums featured his Gretsch White Falcon exclusively, and Duffy has made a point to include it on every subsequent album, most notably the chart-topping Electric and Sonic Temple, and their most recent critically acclaimed release Choice of Weapon.

Gretsch is proud to introduce the G7593T Billy Duffy Falcon signature hollow body, which stands out as one of the most remarkable White Falcon guitars of all time. While this Falcon boasts many features that have made this guitar an instant classic, the G7593T Billy Duffy Falcon several unique aesthetic differences that separate Duffy's unmistakable Falcon from the rest of the flock, including its period-correct '70s Baldwin-era styling, pure White gloss nitro lacquer finish, its smaller '70s style V-shaped Falcon headstock, Silver Sparkle binding, and Duffy's preferred Bigsby tailpiece.

The 17" wide, 2 3/4" deep single cutaway body is crafted from three-ply maple and features an arched top and back, all with the support of two parallel spruce tone bars and sound post. The neck is carved from three-piece maple/walnut/maple and lays beneath an ebony fingerboard with 22 (plus zero fret) medium jumbo frets, a comfortable 12" radius, and gorgeous pearloid wide-block position inlays.

For a tone that's up to par with the legend himself, the Gretsch G7593T Billy Duffy Falcon comes outfitted with a set of hot custom wound "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups equipped with 3-point adjustable '70s style metal bezels. The pickups are routed through independent volume controls, and share a master volume control and a 3-way pickup toggle switch. For additional tonal tailoring, the pickups are also wired through 3-position master tone switch.

At Duffy's request, the '70s style ebony-based Adjusto-Matic bridge has been pinned to the body to keep it from moving out of place, and is paired up with a Bigsby B6CW tailpiece with a "wire" style tremolo arm and a set of '70s style Grover imperial tuners with butter-bean buttons. Other unique features include a bone nut, a chrome-plated truss rod cover with Billy's signature, and '70s-style aluminum "G" arrow knobs. Included with your purchase of the G7593T Billy Duffy Signature guitar is a premium "Billy Duffy" case and a towel.
