ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This guitar is from the collection of Joe Walsh, however, it was gifted to Walsh from Bono. It was performance-used by Bono, and includes a piece of tape on the head relating to Bono's tuning of the guitar, and there is additional U2 coding and information written on the road case.

Joe Walsh’s signed Gretsch G6136I “Bono” Irish Falcon. The hollow-body electric guitar consists of a laminated maple body with gold sparkle binding and a two-piece maple neck with an ebony fretboard.

Equipped with High Sensitive Filter’Tron pickups, a Gretsch Cadillac “G” tailpiece, and gold acrylic pickguard with a “The Goal is Soul” graphic, this version of the Irish Falcon is modeled on the guitar Bono used on U2’s 2005 Vertigo tour.

Manufactured in 2006, the guitar is marked with the serial number “JT06042289” on the internal paper label. Walsh has signed the body, below the left f-hole, in silver ink, “Joe Walsh.”

The instrument exhibits some scratching to the pick guard and light surface wear from use. It is accompanied by the original paperwork and Gretsch COA. A black Gretsch hard shell case is included, which measures 19.5”x46.5” and 6” deep and exhibits some minor scratches and scuffs.
