Description

9.4 of 10 Condition (some slight oxidation to gold plating, small crack in pickguard (through screw hole) 2 tiny cracks, small area of thumb wear in finish behind 2nd fret, a bit of superficial buckle wear (none through finish). Possibly a replaced zero fret. All else entirely original.

The 1959 model 6120 is among the most desirable of all 6120s because of the Brian Setzer factor. Brian's is one of the most iconic and recognizable guitars in all of rockdom. His is serial #33024 and this one is 33097 - a mere 73 numbers away! Being only a second owner guitar this one was well cared for and shows only light signs of playing. It's all original in parts and finish except for a possibly replaced "zero fret". Aside from being a highly prized collectible this one is a super player that will make you the envy of any player. The '59 is the second thinnest bodied variant and has PAF Filter-Tron pickups which are ultra hot and crunchy sounding and the most desirable variant. And you'll look cool as hell playing it!
