Gretsch G6120T-BSSMK Brian Setzer Signature Nashville, Smoke Orange (142)

Honoring a pivotal rock 'n' roll legend, the G6120T-BSSMK Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Hollow Body '59 "Smoke" with Bigsby is a recreation of Brian's main stage guitar since retiring the famed 'Stray Cat.' A pain-staking homage to one of Brian's most treasured guitars, Smoke delivers vintage '59 vibe with powerhouse performance. Period-correct details abound including the '59 headstock shape and logo, pickguard shape, size, and bracket, volume, tone and switch locations and a beautifully rich "Smoke Orange" semi-gloss lacquer finish. Beneath its vintage cloak however, Smoke is a true workhorse with features accumulated over a prolific span of Brian's career. Stage-veteran specs include a single-cutaway hollow body with arched laminated maple top, 1959 trestle bracing and oversized F-holes for improved sonic projection. The maple neck has a 9.5"-12" compound radius ebony fingerboard and a vintage 'V' neck shape for comfortable chording or lightning leads. The rolled fingerboard and body edges couple with the semi-gloss finish to create an unparalleled broken-in feel found only in the prized G6120s from the 1950s. Dual TV Jones Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity pickups provide timeless tone with excellent bass response and shimmering Filter'Tron sparkle. For complete roadworthy stability, Smoke is equipped with an Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned rosewood base, Bigsby B6CGH vibrato tailpiece, Delrin nut and Gotoh locking tuning machines.
