I’ve always used the Les Paul and Gretsch White Falcon, and they’re both heavily featured on the new album. Regarding the second part, that’s a very pragmatic question. One thing I’ve done with the White Falcon is put things in the body — little bits of T-shirts or whatever — to help stop some of the feedback.
Few guitars throughout history are as elegant, distinguished and iconic as the Gretsch White Falcon, a full-bodied behemoth once characterized by Guitar World’s own Alan di Perna as “the indisputable gold-trimmed Cadillac Coupe DeVille of the electric guitar universe.”
Gretsch has announced the G7593T Billy Duffy White Falcon guitar. The new guitar, named and designed for The Cult guitarist, has unique aesthetic differences that separate it from the rest of the “Falcon” flock.
