Take home a beautiful Gretsch® White Falcon™ guitar painted by renowned marine life artist Wyland.

The G6136DS White Falcon is truly a beautiful bird, with a single-cutaway hollow body with arched top, oversized bound f holes and gold-sparkle binding (body, fingerboard and headstock). The three-piece maple neck has an ebony fingerboard with feather-engraved mother-of-pearl hump block inlays. Other features include dual DynaSonic™ single-coil pickups, three-position pickup switch, gold plexi pickguard with Falcon motif, gold-plated hardware, gold-plated Grover® Imperial™ tuners, vertical gold-sparkle Gretsch logo headstock inlay, gold-plated Synchro-Sonic™ bridge and Cadillac “G” tailpiece.

Renowned marine life artist Wyland changed the way people think about our environment when he started painting life-size whales on the sides of buildings in the 1980s. Through his unique marine life paintings, sculptures, and photography, Wyland has inspired a generation about the importance of marine life conservation. His life – like his art – can find him anywhere around the world, at any time, from the Antarctic ice shelf on a photo expedition to document climate change to a grassroots journey down the Mississippi River on a mission of conservation.

Wyland’s oil paintings are highly sought after. There are only a few of this type of Wyland’s artwork in existence making this a very unique piece.
