> I LOVE GRETSCHES!! Always have. I think it stems from being such a big Stray Cats fan growing up. This one is cool. TV Jones pickups. Bigsby. Sparkly binding. Very flash!! I think I bought it around the time we played Hyde Park in London and I’m pretty sure I played it a lot at that gig. I seem to remember playing it a lot on the “acoustic” tour around then too.more
On [Gretsch's website](http://gretschguitars.com/features/briansetzer2015) it quotes Brian Setzer saying, “The Black Phoenix is the Big Kahuna. This guitar is just WOW! Its got a longer scale and that is really helpful in the upper register when you are playing up high you just have more room up there. Its so clean sounding. It’s got the full 17” body and the new pickups. But unlike a Falcon, the Phoenix does not have the tone controls. It's a little clearer a little louder. It's just a beautiful guitar. We just changed a couple things and added all the modern updates. And the silver sparkle binding on the black ... I mean, yeah, it’s just cool. It rocks my world.”more
