    Sweet!

    What's up with the wiggly legs of the interviewer? Did he need to pee or something? lol

    Excellent.

    Funny that Brian is still buying up Bassmen and Space Echos!

    The most interesting point was that he bought up all those NOS AMS tubes in the late 80s.

    Yes, the interviewer seems like a ok dude but he's not the smoothest operator behind the mic.

    They are all quite nervous for sure.

    This one actually knew what he was talking about though.

    They can't all have the charm of Rebecca Dirks! :love:

    It takes a certain personallity to be a TV show and to ask the right questons. You can't always copntrol the person you're interviewing and his excitement level, but come on now as a host this guy has to take some viagra or something to get alittle up beat..meth something! It was brutal I couldn;t watch after 5 minutes any longer

    I don't watch to be charmed by a host or tech. I like the info. Brian Setzer is simply a brilliant guitar player. Good stuff, thanx for posting.

    For sure. We need to readjust our expectations here. Exactly how much did we pay for this info? Oh yeah, nothing....
    Thanks for sharing. Wish I had an old 6120.

    Cool stuff. Nothing sounds quite like a Gretsch. One thing interesting on his original 1959 shown in the beginning of the video is that it has no 'Zero_Fret'. I know Gretsch did lots of weird things back then, but nonetheless it makes we wonder about the story behind the guitar's year vs the missing Zero_Fret. Maybe he removed it?

    I took the comment about it to mean that Brian had it removed..

    That's how I've always understood it too.

    Hell, McCartney had one ADDED to his Rickenbacker 4001!

    When Setzer went to record; Rockabilly Riot - A Tribute to Sun Records, two of the frets fell out of his '59 G5120. He had to switch to one of his signature guitars.

    Billy Zoom maintains Setzer's amps. At any given time, he has 10 to 12 of Setzer's blonde Bassmans, in his shop. Billy is a great source of amp info, tips and tricks.

    The bit about the AMS tubes was great.

    I was going to pull out my Hot Rod, but I sat down to listen to Setzer's new instrumental album while my amp was warming up, and I just decided there was no point to playing. I flipped the amp back off and just listened. Damn he's good.

    The Hot Rod is an awesome guitar, btw. I rarely play anything else anymore; it's all I need.
