I didn't think Gretsch guitars were made in Korea. But the guys feedback is real good, so I don't know.
*Taylor 214ce Acoustic
*Fender Highway One Honey Blonde Strat (Fralin Pickups)
*Epiphone Zephyr Regent (Gibson '57 Humbucker)
*Vox 847 Wah
*Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET
*Fender Blues Deluxe Amp

The gretsch electromatic series is made in Korea I believe. They are about £500-600 in England so it's a good deal as far as i'm aware.

^no you're certainly not! (in your vids you look pretty young, but that hasn't got anything to do with it )

I think thatguy147 thought the description stated that it was a White Falcon, but it doesn't (it says it looks like one in a way, and that for the price you won't find anything closer to it).

Oh, thatguy147, one more thing : White FalCON, not Falcoln.

from the Fender site (resources --> Fender history) :

"Corporate headquarters is located in Scottsdale, Ariz., U.S.A., with manufacturing headquarters and the Fender Custom Shop in Corona, Calif. FMIC markets using the brand names Fender®, Charvel®, Gretsch®, Guild®, Jackson®, Olympia®, Orpheum®, Squier®, SWR® and Tacoma®. For more information, contact Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, 8860 E. Chaparral Road, Suite 100, Scottsdale, Ariz. 85250, Ph: 480.596.9690."

So I guess they all work together..or something like that.

Yeah Fender owns like all of those companies now, but they keep all of the company's teams around so it's not like Jacksons are being made by the guys at Fender.

And congrats on the guitar. The Electromaic I've played was an awesome guitar.
I'd love a White Falcon but the price is outta my reach.

it sure looks real, they show a pic of the serial number, and it's handwritten, so it must be good.

Fender distributes Gretsch guitars. They don't manufacture or completely own Gretsch.

Now why do you need a white falcon when you do Greenday covers?


Dude, Green Day is far from what i play. Yes, i recorded a few of them because i had backing tracks to them and i wanted to hear what it sounded like. My guitar style is rockabilly / psychobilly. Bands like Stray Cats, The Living End etc. That kind of music. My Les Paul can't get that nice twangy sound. BTW its an Electromatic, not a White Falcon. I wish it was a white falcon though.
