    Hi everyone, stoked to be here, just got my first 1994 G2557 Pro Jet II - and I really did take lessons from Brian Setzer when I was 19 for a year in 1990-91.

    He is amazing-person and player.

    ..i’d have to say my funniest memory from back then (aside from playing his original Stray Cats guitar-rad) was one time he forgot I was coming and had just woke up and gave me the hour lesson in his boxers, it was classic…tats boxers and playing classical music on his gretsch, or my fender cause we would trade off…opportunity of a lifetime for sure.
    I’ll still see him every long while and he still remembers me…awesome I was a huge “Cats” fan

    Nice to have you on board. Setzer is as fine of a player as exists IMHO. He has great technique and is living proof that an educated musician can Rock.
