Gretsch has just announced alt-country star Orville Peck's first-ever signature guitar, the Limited Edition Orville Peck Falcon. With this new signature guitar, Gretsch promises to capture “Peck’s true iconoclast spirit with mid-century swagger.”

The headline spec here is that dazzling Oro Sparkle finish, which is complemented by a gold plexi pickguard and aged pearloid Humpblock fingerboard inlaid with western-themed artwork by Judith Rothman Pierce, one of Peck's go-to designers.
