By spearheading the rockabilly revival with the Stray Cats and jump-starting Big Band Swing with the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Brian Setzer has created a remarkable and lasting legacy. His decorated career includes over 13 million records sold, three Grammy Awards and the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award in honor of his work as a guitarist. Without a doubt, the longtime signature Gretsch artist is one of the most exciting musicians of our time.
Gretsch is thrilled to be a part of Setzer’s pivotal legacy with the G6120T-BSNSH Brian Setzer Signature Nashville® Hollow Body with Bigsby®, a truly rocking instrument that boasts as much swagger as the showman who inspired it.
The single-cutaway hollow body in stunning Black Lacquer is equipped with an arched maple top with 1959 trestle bracing and oversized F-holes for improved sonic projection. The maple neck has a 9.5"-12” compound radius ebony fingerboard with rolled edges for comfortable chording or speedy riffing across 22 medium frets and mother of pearl Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays. Dual TV Jones® Brian Setzer Signature Filter’Tron™ pickups deliver tight and punchy lows with a slightly hotter output that captures Brian’s iconic lively tone.
Other performance-enhancing features include period-correct control locations with a three-position pickup toggle switch, three-position tone switch, master volume control with treble bleed circuit and individual bridge and neck pickup volume controls, Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with pinned rosewood base, Bigsby® B6C vibrato tailpiece, Delrin® nut and Gotoh® locking tuning machines.
The G6120T-BSNSH duly impresses with period-correct gold pickguard shape, size and bracket, white body and neck binding, nickel hardware and rocking, seven-come-eleven dice knobs.
