In these clips, Joe from Reverb grabs an attractive Gretsch 6120 and breaks down three representative (but not overplayed) Setzer riffs and/or solos:

• Riff from ”Hillbilly Jazz Meltdown” (2011's Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!)
• Solo from ”Hot Rod Girl” (2001's Ignition!)
• Riff from “Ignition!” (also from 2001's Ignition!)

You can watch each clip individually or just stick with the top clip, which kicks off a YouTube playlist featuring all three videos. Enjoy!
