Brian Setzer 6120SSUGR

By MrCairo46

from Baltimore, Maryland Hon!!!

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120SSU Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Guitar:

Ahhh What a pleasure to play. I have been saving all year for a new guitar as a reward for a great business year. I played them all since January, Fenders, Gibsons, PRS's and itwas great fun, but I just never fell in love until I started playing Gretschs. I started playing several Duo Jets, and Soon moved to the Setzers Nasville models. Brian these guitars do you proud. Mine has the Sperzel locking tuners, Bigsby tremolo and the newly added T.V. Jones Pickups . Switches and knobs all move smoothly without static, action is a little high, but a 1/2 turn on the truss rod with the included wrench made it play like a dream. Strap locks are included and easily installed on your favorite leather strap. The Finish really knocks you out. I got the Flamed maple in green. Oh yes Green, so I'm not a purest. Thanks to Brian Setzer for puttingf together such a great axe, and Ryan at GC Towson for ordering this beauty for me.

Worth the Wait

By RevKevBo

from Batesville, IN

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120SSU Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Guitar:

first, I own several Gretsch guitars, but had to wait to make the plunge. There is another version of this guitar but this was the one I wanted. Kudos to the guitar center tech who set this up for me. This guitar is a dream to play and while it sounds great in a '59 Bassman, I run it through twin Vox AC30's. For Sweet Setzer sound get the Roland Space echo pedal to go with it. Anyhow, this top of the line Gretsch is worth every penny you invest. It is the smoothest playing guitar I own w/ a very fast neck. Thank you Gretsch!

Knockout Gretsch!

By Guitar South Bend

from South Bend, Indiana

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120SSU Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Guitar:

This is a fantastic guitar. There are a few technical specs other reviews left out. here they go: First, the neck is a "v" shape. This is a very attractive 50s style neck and easy to play. The second is super important: it has trestle bracing on the body. This is a huge upgrade and a very tone important measure. The special 50s style bracing means the top is more interactive when played and this means the entire guitar vibrates with mojo...which you hear acoustically and amplified. The locking tuners are a huge upgrade as are the tv jones pickups. Nothing sounds like a gretsch with tvs. Nothing. The brian gretsch has several gretsch switching modes for pickup selecting, the best being dead center for all switches, which gives you the famous and super cool gretsch sounds we all love. This fit and finish on these japanese made guitars is dead perfect. I would argue better than almost every american guitar company. The ebony fingerboard plays like butter and the bigsby is just fun. you can always move the bigsby's handle back if you are not into the vibrato tailpiece. The flame is on the back, sides, and top. One thing most gretsch guys agree on is they are built like tanks and always hold tune. you should take caution to climate change with this guitar. like i've said before on other reviews I've had a lot of guitars in my life and I love this one. She is a keeper and I would buy another if she were lost or stolen!

Twang On

By Blast-O

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120SSU Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Guitar:

The Setzer SSU is a top-notch hollowbody. Made by Japan's best craftsmen, it has all the appointments you'd expect in a replica of a classic Gretsch design. Inlays, bindings, finish are all beautifully done. The switches are a little snaky and need TLC to keep them from going crackly when switching, but overall the electronics sound great used in a variety of clean to driven settings. Use on a '59 Bassman and you are a Rockabilly God!! The Setzer SSU is the cheaper version of the lacquered edition. Didn't have a chance to compare, but I would assume they are similar.

Perfection in every way!


from Salisbury,MD

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120SSU Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Guitar:

For starters, Thumbs up to everyone at Guitar Center who assisted. I mean, down to the Certificate I found that specified this guitar was tested, checked, and setup and repacked VERY Carefully. I was amazed, But it was the only way to get this guitar to me. There are no music stores within 2 and 1/2 hrs!!! Anyway the guitar.IT IS BEAUTIFUL TO STARE AT!! It makes you play better! I had to rethink my approach to the technique I use. But after a few days, This thing IS alive and the feel is amazing. Do I have to repeat BEAUTIFUL!!! IF you were putting off getting a Gretsch because of the price?? I did for over 30 years.Get one, They are well Worth every cent I paid!!! This just blows 'em all away in feel, sound and Mojo/Vibe. Gretsch got me right into my sound by this guitar. and Guitar Centers policies and staff are keeping me as a customer Forever! THANKS!!! MK

Worthwhile Investment


from Washington, DC

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120SSU Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Guitar:

This really is a phenomenal instrument. The two things that jumped out at me upon taking it out of the case were the wide ranging tones that this instrument puts out. Even through a run-of-the-mill amp, you can go from a serious twang to a smooth jazzy sound. The action is lower than that of the Gibson Firebird that I am used to playing. The case (which was included with the guitar when I purchased it) is heavy-duty and mine came with regular knobs if you want to replace the dice. It appears to be well manufactured although there are couple of small visual imperfections that may be indicative of any instrument that is largely had made. Overall, an expensive guitar, but one that will motivate you to play a lot more.
