Re: Fender White Chicken

The love child between a Tele and a Gretsch 5120! I'm digging it and would love to see it in transparent blue.

Guys - does ANYBODY here see the connection?

Gretsch did the White Falcon 50 years ago.

Very ornate, dressy, expensive hollowbody.
Later there were other guitars - Silver, Black, etc.

And not just the Falcon, but the Penguin, etc.


So fast forward a few decades.
Fender OWNS the manufacturing rights for Gretsch.

And then the Tele Thinline is seen by somebody as the basis for this creation.

Okay, we ALL know that the Tele is the barest of basic guitars.
So, to keep it humble they called this the White Chicken - fxcking hilarious.

(If you actually get the humor)

So, get out there on the Interwebz and look at the White Falcon.
Then come back to these pics.

Slowly, the secret will be revealed....

I believe it was made to celebrate the FMIC-Gretsch production agreement, sometime around 2003-2004.

" 'somewhere' around 2003" that's what you get when you write something and start cropping sentences...shifting words and then post without double-checking...

Re: Fender White Chicken

It kind of looks like they took the fret board of a Gretsch neck and put it
on a Fender. Since the guitar I play the most is my Tele I like that a lot.
That is Sweet.
