Gretsch G6120T-BSSMK Brian Setzer Signature Nashville '59 "Smoke" - Smoke Orange

available for immediate delivery


This is the Artist Signature Gretsch G6120T-BSSMK Brian Setzer model hollow body. This guitar pays homage to Brian’s original 1959 Chet Atkins 6120, with mods including a Pinned Adjusto-Matic bridge, removed zero fret, and Gotoh locking tuners. The neck shape and radius are also a bit different from a stock ’59, with a soft “V” shape and an exceptional 9.5” to 12” compound radius fretboard. The TV Jones Classic pickups and a pinned bridge make this a versatile Gretsch capable of a great variety of sounds, from vintage style clean tones to high gain rock & roll. The semi-gloss lacquer “Smoke” finish gives this guitar the look and feel of one of Brian Setzer’s most prized guitars. And unlike most Setzer models, this one comes with a more traditional look exemplified by its nickel control knobs in place of the usual dice. We are a long standing fully authorized independent Gretsch guitar dealer. This is a brand new factory first guitar and comes with the deluxe Gretsch hard case, all documentation and the Gretsch Limited lifetime warranty.

Why We Love Gretsch

Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
