Stripped down and hot-rodded, the G6136SLBP Brian Setzer Black Phoenix is designed and built for speed. The single-cutaway hollowbody has an arched top and back, 1959 trestle bracing and oversized f-holes; the maple neck has a 9.5-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium frets and mother-of-pearl Neo-Classic Thumbnail inlays.

Other features include dual TV Jones Brian Setzer "Signature" pickups, three-position pickup switch, jeweled single master volume control, silver-sparkle binding (body, fingerboard and headstock), silver plexi pickguard with Phoenix silhouette graphic, pinned Adjusto-Matic bridge and Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece Schaller strap locks, Grover Imperial tuners and gloss black nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

"The Black Phoenix is the Big Kahuna. This guitar is just wow! It's got a longer scale and that is really helpful in the upper register when you are playing up high you just have more room up there. Its so clean sounding. It's got the full 17" body and the new pickups. But unlike a Falcon, the Phoenix does not have the tone controls. It's a little clearer, a little louder. It's just a beautiful guitar. We just changed a couple things and added all the modern updates. And the silver sparkle binding on the black ... I mean, yeah, it's just cool. It rocks my world." - Brian Setzer

Gretsch® Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY.

To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable warranty period. Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any Gretsch instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to FMIC from an Authorized Service Center for alternative considerations. All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.
