    Thanks guys :)

    The Setzer sigs all have them as standard, but if your for Gretsch dice knobs on ebay, you'll have plenty of options :)

    That first picture caused me to do a double-take. I thought I saw a crazy cable coming from the bar to the horn on the guitar and I couldn't see why. I haven't fully awakened yet. hahaha It looks great!

    Beautiful guitar! May you play it in good health!

    I also got a Xmas present from my fiancee.
    A Casino Gold Penguin! I love it! It sings and plays like a dream!

    Congrats on a beautiful guitar and an even better story since you and your Dad purchased this together. The best guitars are those with a sentimental factor. Enjoy !!!

    A gorgeous guitar. I look forwards to seeing a post with you playing this on Youtube. Will be an interesting comparison to your lovely Cherry Red '59 Ltd Edition 6120 with the Ray Butts.

    Thanks folks :) It hasn't gone back in it's case yet - picked it up every day so far. Looking forward to gigging it when I get the chance

    Thank you :) I'm trying to convince the lads to go in the studio and record / film some covers so we can put some proper videos out with good audio. Think it would help us in the long run :)

    I watched some of your set from the four aces...sounded great. A good showreel can help get bookings so definitely worth doing :)
