I really love Rock-A-Billy and I’m a huge fan of 50’s-60’s rock and roll. So when the Stray Cat’s appeared on the scene in the early 80’s I became an instant fan. Their sound is Brian’s innovative twang that livened up every track of the Cat’s records. Gretsch has had Setzer models for years and deservedly so.

Brian Setzer Nashville

Gretsch® Brian Setzer Nashville models are built to Brian’s exacting specs and modeled on the guitars in his killer vintage collection. The trestle bracing matches that of Setzer’s favorite ’59, giving it a more solid feel and tons of sustain. Standard features include dual TV Jones® Brian Setzer “Signature” humbucking pickups, Schaller® locking tuners and strap locks, pinned Adjusto-Matic™ bridge, nickel hardware and Bigsby® B6CB vibrato tailpiece.
