2020 Gretsch G6120-BSNV Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Black Lacquer, Near-Mint w/ Case, Tags


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2020 Gretsch G6120-BSNV Brian Setzer Signature Nashville model in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, CoA, and hangtags. The hot-rodded iteration of the 6120 platform was designed in collaboration with the Stray Cats/Brian Setzer Orchestra frontman, featuring a pair of TV Jones Brian Setzer Signature Filter’Tron humbuckers, a Black lacquer finish, compound fretboard radius, dice knobs, and 1959-style trestle bracing.

The classic tonewood complement of a ‘59-style trestle-braced maple body, maple neck, and bound ebony fingerboard yields loads of natural sustain and resonance, balanced by a glassy immediacy and treble snap. The TV Jones Brian Setzer Signature Filter’Trons feature a proprietary design, slightly higher output than a TV Jones Classic, with special-alloy (more steel) pole screws and mismatched coils, resulting in optimal clarity and very punchy low-mids. The bass response is super defined, designed to cut right through a mix and overdrive with aplomb. Weighing 7lbs 7oz, this Brian Setzer G6120-BSNV has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
