Without a doubt Brian Setzer is one of the most exciting and impressive musicians of our time. By spearheading the rockabilly revival with the Stray Cats and jump-starting Big Band Swing with the Brian Setzer Orchestra, he has created a remarkable and lasting legacy.
Gretsch is thrilled to be a part of Setzer’s pivotal legacy with the G6120T-HR Brian Setzer Signature Hot Rod Hollow Body with Bigsby, a truly rocking instrument boasting as much swagger as the showman who inspired it.
The single-cutaway hollow body G6120T-HR has an arched maple top with '59 trestle bracing and oversized F-holes for improved sonic snap and projection. The maple neck features a 9.5"-12” compound radius rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges for comfortable chording or speedy riffing across 22 medium frets and pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays. Dual TV Jones Brian Setzer Signature Filter’Tron humbucking pickups replicate Brian’s tight and punchy lows with a slightly hotter output that captures his unmistakably lively tone.
His bare-bones Hot Rod controls include only a three-position pickup toggle switch and master volume control with treble bleed circuit. The pinned Adjusto-Matic bridge with rosewood base, Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece, Delrin nut and Gotoh locking tuners ensure bullet-proof performance night after night.
The G6120T-HR comes dressed to the nines in either a Candy Blue Burst, Candy Magenta, Extreme Coolant Green Sparkle, Lime Gold or Magenta Sparkle finish with nickel hardware.

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.
