    The going price is above $2000 for the cream of the crop pre FMIC Brian setzer hotrod w tonepost. The same 1999 G6120SH non trestles / tonepost model he still cherishes and uses every yr at his Xmas Xtravaganza.. (Scroll 2:49)


    (right click w your mouse on this one below for a poster printable size pic of the Cat)

    but I'm selling mine at $1495+ship on reverb. (if you paypal friends n fam here at GT; $1395+ship & I'll give you 50% off a mystery brain on the next order)

    AND unlike stock w the 90s wonky electronics and ping tuners. this one is upgraded (as is brians) n has tvjones upgrade pickups, sperzel ez mount tuners and a stainless steel tru-arc bridge. There is also a pushpull volume pot that engages a tone cap for darker tones.
    Lots of upgrades but as you know I tend to use guitars for testing pickups and their interactions w pedals.. so everything isnt perfect since its not one of my performance instruments. hence the price. the instrument though is in very good condition and indeed a 2.5" tonepost model in purple.

    Finding accurate specs on Gretsch models older than the current crop is hopeful at best, so I’m just going to ask here.

    9.5” ebony fretboard?
    Pinned bridge?
    What’s the nut material (not a deal breaker at all, just curious)?

    That's a crazy good deal. Almost makes me wish I needed another guitar.

    Mighty fine example. I got the same one but in a messy black and red coat. Great guitar with some cool upgrades

    I should probably get this to keep my name in good standing. I sold my matte black SH several years ago, so have been fraudulently using the moniker. Purple... mmmmm

    The hotrod would be perfect if it had single coils in it, TArmonds Hilos I don't care which. But that's just me. It sure seems the other stuff is all so subjective and varies from guitar to guitar.

    Dang cool guitar, TV. And, congrats on the sale.

    I love the simplicity of controls. Myself, I pretty much only use the Master volume knob and the pickup selector switch. I could easily do without the others.
