Gretsch launches Brian Setzer Nashville at NAMM 2015


Inspired by the legendary artist’s own collection of vintage models, the Gretsch G6120SS Brian Setzer Nashville features the same bracing as his main ‘59 6120 model, which gives solid feel and extra sustain. Other features include a ‘Nashville’ style arched (front and back) laminated maple body with oversized f-holes, a laminated maple top, maple ‘U’-shaped neck with an ebony fingerboard, thumbnail inlays, 22 medium frets and Adjusto-matic ‘pinned’ bridge with a rosewood base.

Hardware includes a chrome plated Bigsby B6CB vibrato tailpiece, Schaller locking tuners and strap locks and the G6120SS also includes a pair of Signature TV Jones pickups with a 3-way pickup selector. A 3-way tone switch offers options for high end roll-off at medium or ‘slight’ levels and ‘pickup ‘wide-open’ position. Also notable is the gold Plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo, and ‘dice’ knobs. There’s a choice of either urethane or lacquer finish and available colours include Gloss Black, Orange or Vintage Orange.Gretsch G6120SSU Brian Setzer Nashville Orange

About Author

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
