Built to the rockabilly legend’s exacting standards, the new G6120SH Brian Setzer Hot Rod is a stripped-down, single cutaway ‘Nashville’ style hollowbody with classic Gretsch styling available in a choice of new colours over an arched-top, 5-ply flame maple body and featuring a set of the artist’s own Signature TV Jones pickups. Also featured is a maple neck, an ebony fingerboard with thumbnail inlays, 22 medium size frets, 1959-style trestle bracing, large f-holes, a Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece, chrome plated hardware and in keeping with its basic spec, a single 3-way pickup selector switch, a single volume control on the lower bout and no scratchplate. Gretsch has installed a ‘pinned’ Adjusto-Matic bridge with a rosewood base for increased stability and Schaller locking tuners.
Colours include 2-Tone Harbour Blue, Highland Green, Roman Red, and Tuxedo Black which match the top and back in the primary colour and the body sides and the back of the neck in a secondary colour. The Tuxedo Black is also available in a single colour finish only along with two further versions, a Blonde and Green Sparkle. A Gretsch G621 hardshell case is included.
