    I'm curious has anyone seen Brian Setzer play a Duo Jet? I've seen him use the Silver jet on certain songs back in the day like Switchblade 327. I could have sworn a couple times I saw him live he played a Duo jet too?

    Saw a YouTube video where he played a (Silver Sparkle) Duo Jet, think it was BSO if I recall. Think he played it on part of a full concert video.

    Is far as Jets I’ve personally only seen him with the Silver Jet in live footage. There’s also that picture of him holding the greenish but I believe blue sparkle Jet. I know he had a 1957 6128 at one time according to his website. Although the guitars on there haven’t been updated in years.

    He doesnt perform w them anymore. He has though come back to using a falcon on stage w a blonde twin. I love the tone he got from the old days w that near hollow 50s sparkle jet w Dynas. what a tone so raw, edgy w the sweetest woody bonk on the lows w that space echo and blonde bassman!


    and of course Switchblade at 16:00 on this live recording

    I thought he used to use a Jet on Brand New Cadillac sometimes too. Did he play one at all with the Stray Cats? I've only seen the stray cats in concert one time in 2003 at the Hootenanny Fest. Great show! I've seen the BSO about 8 or 9 times now.

    In the early days of the BSO, he would play the sparkle jet through a 4x10 brown Concert on “Honky Tonk”

    After the cats went south he was doing that solo bit w the brown concert. That amp was tooo damn bright for him :) Listen to it with a 96' sig model, I cant even imagine the slice from the dynas :) He also had @TSims1 hair style :)

    I just love this song so much, but yes, the 10” speakers don’t do him justice.
