    ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Thank you.

    I wanted a Gretsch White Falcon for 51 years.

    I worked an entire summer bagging groceries to get my Gibson ES 335 (which I still have).

    I originally wanted a White Falcon but I'd have to work another 2 summers for it.

    The bird is home.

    Thank you all.

    As I said before, I'm a cork sniffer but I don't care where a guitar is made, as long as, it's made well and sounds good.




    I bought them at the GC in East Brunswick, NJ.

    I bundled them in a 48 month finance deal...............the Gretsch was used but the Vintera Strat had a 48 month deal that I was able to bundle both in the 48 month deal.

    Cool beans.:dude:

    Thank you.

    I wanted a White Falcon for decades.

    Every year, Falcons grew more and more out of my financial reach.

    I found a white and black one.

    Both were used and expensive.

    I waited and they were both sold.

    The White Falcon that I bought was not listed as a White Falcon but as a G3136.

    It was expensive too ($2499.00) and used in excellent condition.

    I waited but not very long (3 weeks) and bought this beauty.
