    Lurking for a while, soaking in the posts & wise counsel. I've wanted a 6120 since I saw this three-piece band with a huge sound in early 1983 and finally was able to get one. Life got crazy last month so I wasn't able to post for NGD, but I've had a new Setzer Hot Rod for around six weeks now. What an amazing instrument! It seems to breathe whenever I pick it up.

    Thanks to everyone on the forums for the great information and I hope to be able to contribute in the future.

    I really like the understated finishes on the new Hot Rods. To each his own, but I found the older finishes way over the top.
