Without a doubt Brian Setzer is one of the most exciting and impressive musicians of our time. By spearheading the rockabilly revival with the Stray Cats and jump-starting Big Band Swing with the Brian Setzer Orchestra, he has created a remarkable and lasting legacy.
Gretsch is thrilled to be a part of Setzer’s pivotal legacy with the G6120T-HR Brian Setzer Signature Hot Rod Hollow Body with Bigsby®, a truly rocking instrument boasting as much swagger as the showman who inspired it.
The single-cutaway hollow body G6120T-HR has an arched maple top with '59 trestle bracing and oversized F-holes for improved sonic snap and projection. The maple neck features a 9.5"-12” compound radius rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges for comfortable chording or speedy riffing across 22 medium frets and pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays. Dual TV Jones® Brian Setzer Signature Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups replicate Brian’s tight and punchy lows with a slightly hotter output that captures his unmistakably lively tone.
His bare-bones Hot Rod controls include only a three-position pickup toggle switch and master volume control with treble bleed circuit. The pinned Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with rosewood base, Bigsby® B6C vibrato tailpiece, Delrin® nut and Gotoh® locking tuners ensure bullet-proof performance night after night.
The G6120T-HR comes dressed to the nines in either a Candy Blue Burst, Extreme Coolant Green Sparkle, Lime Gold or Candy Magenta finish with nickel hardware.
