Gretsch Brian Setzer Nashville

This guitar is inspired by Brian's special vintage Gretsch collections, and it is part of the company's release of newly upgraded Professional Collection Hollow Body guitars.

According to the company, the most notable feature of this new release is the addition of two TV Jones Brian Setzer Signature pickups, TV Jones' first artist signature pickup. This Filtertron style humbucker is described as having a vintage voice with punchy low end and clarity.

The guitar has multiple options for the body, a five-ply flame maple body in Orange Urethane or Orange Lacquer, or you can go for the 3-ply maple body model that comes in either gloss black urethane or vintage orange lacquer finish.

The body shape follows the traditional curves of old Gretsch single-cutaway hollow body guitars, which works in tandem with the different finishes to give the instrument an overall classic appeal. The threstle bracing of the Brian Setzer Nashville is based on Setzer's favorite vintage '59 Gretsch, a design that helps improves the reliability and sustain of the instrument.

Other features of the body include multiply binding, a body depth of 2.75", lower bout width of 16" and it features bound Oversized "F"-Holes.

The guitar's maple neck is is topped by an ebony fretboard. It has a fingerboard radius of 9.45" and comes with a total of 22 frets. Nut width is 1.6875", scale length is 24.6" and the neck also has the same binding.

The guitar comes with Schaller locking tuners paired with Bigsby B6CB vibtrato tailpiece so you can do all the rockabilly pseudo-slide/bend licks that Setzer is known for. Other features include Neo Classic "Thumbnail" Inlay Position Markers, Horseshoe Headstock Inlay, Delrin Nut, White Dice Control Knobs, Schaller Straplocks, and Adjustable Truss Rodpinned adjustomatic bridge.

Finally a Gold Plexi pickguard with Brian Setzer's Signature and truss rod cover with his name, completes the artist signature guitar package. The MSRP for the Brian Setzer Nashville with TV Jones guitar ranges from $4,550 to $4,850. For further details, head over to Gretsch Guitars.
