Iconic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and three-time Grammy-award-winner Brian Setzer is a "musician's musician" credited with continually taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles. Setzer is widely credited for taking two forgotten genres, rockabilly and swing, adding his own blend of gunpowder and rockin style, and completely reinventing and single-handedly resurrecting them in the process.

Along the way, he has scored chart-topping hits, sold 13 million records and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award throughout his decorated career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 19-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist. He is consistently cited as one of the world’s greatest living guitarists, and has a best-selling, extensive line of elite Gretsch signature model guitars bearing his name. Brian appeared in the 1987 film, La Bamba, portraying rockabilly pioneer Eddie Cochran.

In 2002, he earned the privilege of being one of the few musicians to be animated in an episode of “The Simpsons.” That same year, Brian was personally requested to induct Chet Atkins into the 17th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He had the honor of being invited in 2006 to perform at the White House for the President of the United States. In 2014, Brian received the distinct honor of being asked by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. to donate a replica of his original 1959 Gretsch 6120 “Stray Cat” guitar, joining an elite collection of iconic treasures at the museum. $39 – $59
