Odd that the new Setzer "'59 Smoke" guitar reissue is actually based on a 1960 model year guitar (2.5" deep body and V-style Bigsby). But if Brian wants to call it a '59... then God bless!
I would love to have that magenta hot rod.
Oh me too!

Looks like lime gold has returned (!)
I for one like the metallic Hot Rods and am glad to see the return. I’m curios to see the Candy Blue Burst and Candy Magenta Hot Rod. Will have to look for photos from the booth if it’s at NAMM now.
I just pulled these from online. Although I bet the crummy photo’s don’t do them justice. Will have to see better photos to make judgement. I imagine a certain someone on here will be digging the blue.
Wouldn't the 60 have been released in 59?
Silly knob placement! That's all I can notice now.
Steve Wariner Sig?
Bit like a Joe Bonnamassa Sig Gretsch - guess he played one at some time.
Without doubt... it was a standard practice for Gretsch to release the new model year guitars (first batches) towards the end of the previous calendar year. But that doesn't affect the model year attribution which is determined by features. We are kind of forced to use that system since there's no production history that will confirm exactly what dates certain batches were made and delivered to retail.
Oh joy, a couple of new Brian Setzer signatures...
"Over sized f holes for sonic projection". In an electric guitar. That's cute.
Wariner has the Chet Atkins CGP connection to Gretsch at least. It is a pretty fine guitar though. Of the three, that's the one I'd choose.
I actually like this one more:
I hadn’t noticed it. That’s a good one.
I’m waiting for a Poison Ivy signature ‘58 6120 with or without her quirky b3!
They could do it justice with the TVJ Ray Butts!
I just noticed the blue two tone Hot Rods are off the Gretsch website and must be discontinued. They’re still listing the Highland Green, Tuxedo Black, and Roman Red.
That would be a interesting and clever choice in this day and age of woman empowerment.
Steve actually has used Gretsches a ton over the years. He uses them LOTS in the studio too. And being a CGP speaks for itself. I think this is an awesome decision on Gretsch's part.
