    I don’t know of any around here either. In fact, I had to buy this one sight unseen (no pics). It was brand new, shipped direct from the warehouse. The price was right, and with the return option it was worth a shot. Besides, what guitar could be more appropriate for a dice roll than a Setzer 6120 (though it has regular knobs)?

    Congratulations, sgarnett! That's a really beautiful Gretsch, and it just looks like it's ready to cook!

    Man, those are beautiful. Just wish they didn't have the Setzer sig on the back of the headstock.

    Congratulations on your purchase. You’re going to love it. I sold three of my guitars and put cash on my Smoke back in November. I’m ruined. Nothing else I’ve picked on since feels right. With the combination of that neck and body thickness it is truly the best feeling, playing guitar I’ve ever touched.

    I always enjoy finding a reason to post my baby. The only thing I changed was the Bigsby arm.

    I have a DE arm ready for it. I’ll also swap out the original-style Schaller strap lock button for the new S-lock version. Old and new are compatible, but the new ones don’t rattle. Other than those and the pickguard, I intend to leave it alone. I probably won’t do anything except play it for a few weeks though.

    Love the shade of these, and the soft V is very attractive. Enjoy.

    I love mine too.
    I wanted to change the pickguard with a plain one. But the holes were not in the same place, and after I had to file It to fit the bridge pickup.It was a regular 6120 pickguard for filtertron...
    Did you have the same problem?
    Without pickguard is cool too.
