By spearheading the rockabilly revival with the Stray Cats and jump-starting Big Band Swing with the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Brian Setzer has created a remarkable and lasting legacy. His decorated career includes over 13 million records sold, three Grammy Awards and the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award in honor of his work as a guitarist. Without a doubt, the longtime signature Gretsch artist is one of the most exciting musicians of our time.
Gretsch is thrilled to be a part of Setzer’s pivotal legacy with the G6120TFM Brian Setzer Signature Nashville® Hollow Body with Bigsby and Flame Maple, a truly rocking instrument that boasts as much swagger as the showman who inspired it.
The single-cutaway hollow body features tiger flame maple arched top, back and sides with 1959 trestle bracing and oversized F-holes for improved sonic projection. The set maple neck has a 9.5”-12” compound radius ebony 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 pickups deliver tight and punchy lows with a slightly hotter output that captures Brian’s iconic lively tone.
Other performance-enhancing features include period-correct control locations with a three-position pickup toggle switch, three-position tone switch, master volume control with treble bleed circuit and individual bridge and neck pickup volume controls, Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned rosewood base, Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece, Delrin nut and Gotoh locking tuning machines.
The G6120TFM in Orange Stain duly impresses with a period-correct gold pickguard shape, size and bracket, white body and neck binding, nickel hardware and G-arrow knobs.

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.
