2005 Gretsch G6120 Brian Setzer SSLVO

Somehow this guitar has escaped any real use for its 16 years of age and remains a case queen which makes no sense as its an absolute killer guitar. It looks like a previous owner preferred stock G arrow knobs to the usual dice knobs on this model, but they are easy enough to find if you would want to return it to stock. This model has the desirable vintage nitro lacquer (SSLVO) and TV Jones classic PAF pickups  and correct 1959 light trestle bracing with a pinned bridge. Apart from a vintage 1959 6120 i don’t think you could wish for a better guitar.

Designed to conform to his own personal mods & specifications, the 2004/2005 Brian Setzer models combine classic Gretsch construction with modern performance features. Resulting in a killer set of smokin’ “Cool Cat” guitars! After reviewing Brian’s collection of vintage 6120’s, Gretsch recreated the trestle bracing to match his favorite ’59, giving the new guitars a more solid feel with added sustain. Available in either a Nashville model, or as a stripped down Hot Rod, each of these musical instruments is factory equipped with TV Jones Classic pickups (optional on Hot Rods) and comes complete with a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, pinned Adjusto-matic bridge, and Sperzel locking tuners. Dig it!


The updated Gretsch Brian Setzer Nashville models have been redesigned and built to Brian Setzer’s rockin’ and exacting specifications. Upon reviewing his killer vintage guitar collection, Gretsch has rebuilt the trestle bracing to match his favorite ’59, giving it a more solid feel with tons of sustain. Available in either Orange Tiger Flame Laquer (SSL) or Vintage Orange Lacquer (SSLVO), each guitar comes factory equipped with TV Jones Classic pickups, Sperzel locking tuners, pinned Adjusto-matic bridge, and Bigsby B6CB Vibrato tailpiece.
