USA Custom Shop Tom Petersson Signature 12-String Falcon™ Bass
The members of Cheap Trick have reigned as the high priests of hard-rocking U.S. power pop for more than 40 years, with an influential and infectiously ever-youthful sound driven by the impeccable playing and volcanic sound of bassist and co-founder Tom Petersson.
Petersson pioneered the creation and use of the 12-string bass guitar, and the Gretsch Custom Shop is supremely delighted to honor him with the USA Custom Shop Tom Petersson Signature 12-String Falcon™ Bass. Stunning in style and utterly seismic in tone, it puts Petersson’s distinctive stamp on the classic White Falcon Bass design, with premium features including dual custom Seymour Duncan® Super’Tron pickups, short scale length (30.5”), a specially designed 12-string Space Control™ bridge and Gretsch Cadillac tailpiece, gloss-finish maple neck with “C” profile, 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 vintage-style frets and mother-of pearl inlays, gold hardware and pickguard, and more. With Petersson’s name and style, Gretsch’s first and only 12-string bass model is surely the most powerful Falcon ever.
