Classic design and tonewoods delivers big tone

You know and love that signature twang and beautiful tone Brian and his legendary Gretsch hollowbody are known for. Now, you can get a taste of that amazing vibe for yourself. The Brian Setzer Hot Rod delivers classic tone and playability with maple top, back, and sides, and a pinned adjusto-matic bridge with a Bigsby B6 vibrato tailpiece. The smooth playing maple neck is topped with a bound ebony fretboard that sports a 9.45" fretboard radius. This outstanding axe also features '59 trestle bracing that helps keep unwanted feedback under control and also adds solidbody-like sustain to a hollowbody guitar. This classic Gretsch design has lasted the ages and has been used in everything from rockabilly to country to punk. Grab a Gretsch G6120SSU Brian Setzer Nashville and see what you've been missing.

TV Jones pickups deliver timeless Gretsch tone

When you want that authentic Gretsch tone, you need classic humbucking pickups. That's why Gretsch loaded the Brian Setzer Hot Rod with a pair of TV Jones Brian Setzer Signature pickups. Designed to sound just like the humbuckers found in '50s and '60s Gretsch guitars, these pickups give your Hot Rod hollowbody a bright and open sound that's jangly on your highs with classic rockabilly bite. It's the perfect sound for rock, rockabilly, blues, country and more.

Smooth vibrato action and vintage vibe courtesy of Bigsby B6

Whether you play old-time country, rockabilly, or surf, it's easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends with the Gretsch Brian Setzer Hot Rod thanks to its Bigsby B6 vibrato tailpiece.
