Martin Gore has an affinity for Gretsch guitars, and plays a Gretsch G6136TLTV White Falcon electric guitar. As seen in this image of him playing live, the model closely resembles the G6136TLTV, but there are a few distinct differences. The neck on Martin's Gretsch has inlaid block markers, while the G6136TLTV has "Thumbnail" inlay position markers. Martin's guitar also appears to have more switches in different positions on the body. The tailpiece is consistent in both guitars however, appearing to be a Bigsby B6G.more
"The second I plugged it in, Fender was nice enough to like send me a few guitars, and we played a show in Phoenix where they're based and one of my amps blew up in the middle of a show. At the end of the show there was like a note on the stage with Fender stationary being like bring it by the shop tomorrow we'll fix it. And that's kind of where the relationship started which was great. And then over the next couple of months they ended up sending me a few guitars and the second I plugged this one in I was like wow this is like the nicest guitar." - Adam at 1:02 into this video.more

"The white falcon has a very unique sound. I played a falcon on nearly all of Jesus Culture’s Consumed record, on “I want to know you” of the Come Away album, a bit of Awakening Live in Chicago and this particular one was used quite alot on Jesus Culture Live from New York . Has a really wide open, and almost woody sound to it."more
