Gretsch Guitars

collapse expand iconDescription

From Brian Setzer's early work the the Stray Cats to reviving big band swing with the Brian Setzer Orchestra, one common factor has been his Gretsch hollowbody electric. This G6120T-HR Brian Setzer Signature Hot Rod hollowbody version of Setzer's performance guitar features a stripped-down control set. Combining vintage vibe with serious performance, this guitar is loaded with period-correct detail. From the '59 headstock shape and pickguard to the trestle bracing of the single-cutaway hollowbody, it gets it right. Modern performance features include a compound-radius, rolled-edge ebony fingerboard on a soft-V neck and a pair of TV Jones Brian Setzer Signature Filter'Trons. The Bigsby B6 vibrato tailpiece, pinned Adjusto-matic bridge and locking Gotoh tuners keep tuning stable, while allowing fluid vibrato "waggle." It's a lean, mean, rocking' machine.

The G6120T-HR Brian Setzer Signature Hot Rod hollowbody includes a deluxe hardshell case.

Gretsch's 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. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument. 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.
