Duffy reminisced about the first Gretsch he ever owned, a double-cutaway stereo 1970′s White Falcon that he no longer has.
“I had to sell that one to get what I really wanted, which was the single-cutaway Falcon with the curved palm bar, which has a very different feel than a short-armed Bigsby.”
Duffy also confirmed that he is working with Gretsch on a signature White Falcon.
“They forensically analyzed my guitar – the ’70s Falcon I used on “She Sells Sanctuary,” with all its battle scars and whatnot, and they’re going to make something based on it,” he noted.
