I love the vintage headstock logo on these...along with the great finish!
The pickguard I bought does NOT fit. It’s PN 0062626000, “PG G6120 Nash Gold Filter-T No CA Sign”. I printed out the templates from Greasy Groove, and none of those seem right either.
@NicolasM and @sgarnett I sent my original pickguard to Quickguards so he could get a tracing, he probably still has it on file. If you order from there and tell him the model he should be able to make one that fits perfectly.
Edit: To clarify in case anyone searches for this in the future. You can send either a tracing or a pickguard to Quickguards and he'll make a custom one that fits. If you send a pickguard, he'll send it back and keep the tracing.
Congrats, I'm not the biggest fan of orange as well but as many others have said, these are just amazing.
No pick guard for sure.
Looks great. I have a 6120 DS that I converted to a satin/matte finish much like your "smoke" finish.The Duane bigsby handle is SO much better as well. Congrats on a great choice!!
...and...no pickguard for sure....
"What's a pickguard?"
That orange one has some impressive wood grain Which wood is it?
Couldn't decide between pickguard or no pickguard, so went with a clear pickguard

Thanks. Quilted maple top.
Congrats! That's one that really has my interest too. I'm glad you brought up the signature though ... and I don't want to hijack the thread, but the signature model thing with any product always gives me pause. I find that I may like the features of a given product but the fact that someone else's name is on it almost always steers me away from it -- even when I really like the artist behind the product. There's a few names like Les or Chet that don't cause the same reaction but nearly all others seem to.
Same for me. This one doesn’t bug me as much as usual. Historically I’d put Brian Setzer’s relationship with Gretsch right up there alongside Chet’s.
Gorgeous geet. Those Smokes are the bees knees. Actually they remind me of rich honey.
I’m with you on the downsizing. I sold 5 prolines to be able to buy 2 Dream guitars and (while i miss the ones i sold) i really enjoy being able to Focus a little more on a smaller collection.
Now that looks like one I probably would have bought for myself!
I wonder if it's just conditioning for me. Les' and Chet's names have just "always" been there. The thing is, I love Setzer's playing and while it might not be an often quoted recording on these pages, his album "The Knife That Feels Like Justice" was a big part of my musical/songwriting development. But even if another of my favorite players, Buddy Miller, had his name on something, I'd still be resistant to it. But don't get me wrong, if I were offered a Setzer model, I take it in a heartbeat .
I like the signature on the back of the peghead. Setzer’s influence has taken Atkins’ guitar in a fantastic direction - as close as I will ever get to custom.
I'm not a Setzer fan boy, and Rockabilly is ok, but not my favorite type of music.
That said, I respect him and his playing, and all that he's been to for Rockabilly, and the Gretsch brand.
No problem with his sig on my headstock at all.
I’m not really familiar with much of his music, but he came about as close as someone else could to spec’ing what I would order myself if a custom build was feasible.
