Get The Tone
Setzer is an avid user of lush sounding Gretsch guitars, both vintage models and his own custom range. He is also famous for using Fender Bassman amps, although he is open to using a multitude of amps in the studio. The Roland Re-301 Chorus Echo will also play a large part in recreating his sound, with a classic 50s slap- back delay. Basically, a decent semi-acoustic - preferably with a vibrato arm - a warm sounding amp, a solid dose of slap-back echo and perhaps a sprinkling of drive and reverb, will get you ready to rock.
