Introduced in 1954 as one of Gretsch's "Guitars of the Future," the White Falcon was an overwhelmingly impressive instrument. The influence of this spectacular new guitar spread to other models and guitar manufacturers. It was the dawn of a half a century of awe-inspiring guitars. This book compiles the best of Gretsch's inventions over the past 50 years and tells the stories of their creation and the people behind them, including artists Pete Townshend, Tom Petty, Alanis Morissette, Chet Atkins, Elvis Presley, Sheryl Crow, John Frusciante, Jimmy Page, and Bo Diddley.
