Gretsch G6120SH-TBLK Brian Setzer Hot Rod with TV Jones "Setzer" Pickups, a Bigsby tremolo unit, and stunning Tuxedo Black Finish

Brian Setzer is a name synonymous with the swagger, charm and class that only a Gretsch guitar can provide you with.  His long-standing love affair with Gretsch began upon him seeing George Harrison and Eddie Cochran wielding them during performances when he was still a child, and by the time he could afford his own high-quality guitar, Gretsch was the only brand he wanted to play.

These days he has his own range of Gretsch Signature Series, such as this incredible G6120SH-TBLK, a Brian Setzer "Hot Rod", complete with Bigsby Tremolo unit, "Setzer" TV Tron pickups, and a delicious Tuxedo Black finish. 

Hollow Body, Chrome Hardware, and that signature Gretsch sound

In addition to the afore-mentioned features, the G6120SH-TBLK comes complete with a whole host of premium-grade appointments, enough to satisfy even the most particular guitar enthusiasts. 

  • The single-cutaway bound hollow body features an arched top, 1959-style trestle bracing, and those classic violin-style F Holes
  • Adorning the maple neck is a bound ebony fingerboard with Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays
  • The two TV Jones humbuckers have been constructed to Brian Setzer's very own specifications
  • Schaller locking tuners work perfectly in unison with the pinned Adjusto-Matic bridge to ensure that the guitar's tuning and intonation aren't affected, no matter how aggressively you use the Bigsby B6C vibrato unit

The guitar as a whole just exudes class from every pore, and that's before you've even plugged it in!

Exquisite Electronics

As mentioned earlier, the pickups in the G6120SH-TBLK are Brian Setzer signature Filter'Tron pickups from TV Jones.  These pickups are based largely around the TV Classic line, and produce a crisp and clear high-end, but with plenty of fat punch in the mids - they work perfectly in conjunction to produce that classic Gretsch sound, combining all of the bright clean tones of a Single Coil, with the growl and bite of a Humbucker.

If you'd like more information on this guitar (or any other of our Gretsch guitar lineup), feel free to call into your local PMT store and chat to one of our in-store guitar experts, maybe even arrange for a play test to see if they're the right fit for you!
