Brian Setzer is Selling a Ton of Guitar Gear on Reverb

Rockabilly guitar hero Brian Setzer – frontman of the Stray Cats and Brian Setzer Orchestra – is selling some super-rare guitar gear from his vast collection on Reverb.

The suitably titled Official Brian Setzer Reverb Shop - which goes live August 26 - is set to feature a string of Gretsch electric guitars used by Setzer himself over the course of his career, as well as a selection of amps, including a 1963 Fender Bassman with a 2x12 cab and a Vox '60s AC30.

Here's a chance for you to secure a piece of history for your guitar rack. Check out the full list of included items below, and head over to Reverb for more info.

This beauty, hand-painted by Tom 'TV' Jones was used in the 2002 Disney film, The Country Bears.

"You better buy that quick. I might not sell that," Setzer says.

This one was used for Mini Bar Blues on Setzer's 13 album and tour. "I achieved the unique sound by tuning the top two strings, the Bs and the Es, in harmony," he reveals.
