Without a doubt, Brian Setzer is one of the most exciting and impressive musicians of our time. He created a remarkable and lasting legacy — from spear-heading the rockabilly revival with the Stray Cats and jump-starting Big Band Swing with the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Throughout his decorated and storied career, he has sold over 13 million records, won three Grammy awards and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award for his work as a guitarist.
Period-correct details abound including the '59 headstock shape and logo, pickguard shape, size, and bracket, volume, tone and switch locations and a beautifully rich “Smoke Orange” semi-gloss lacquer finish.
Beneath its vintage cloak however, Smoke is a true workhorse with features accumulated over a prolific span of Brian’s career. Stage-veteran specs include a single-cutaway hollow body with arched laminated maple top, 1959 trestle bracing and oversized F-holes for improved sonic projection. The maple neck has a 9.5"-12” compound radius ebony fingerboard and a vintage ‘V’ neck shape for comfortable chording or lightning leads. The rolled fingerboard and body edges couple with the semi-gloss finish to create an unparalleled broken-in feel found only in the prized G6120s from the 1950s.
Dual TV Jones Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity pickups provide timeless tone with excellent bass response and shimmering Filter’Tron sparkle. For complete roadworthy stability, Smoke is equipped with an Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned rosewood base, Bigsby B6CGH vibrato tailpiece, Delrin nut and Gotoh locking tuning machines.
