Scars on 45 Perform On Leno


Scars on 45 lead guitarist Matt Baxter recently stopped the Gretsch Artist Showroom to check out some guitars, and he took a shine to a 1962 Gretsch Country Gentleman.

Baxter fell so hard, in fact, that he played the Gent last Friday night on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Watch Baxter and the British indie rockers perform “Heart on Fire” in the clip below:

Scars on 45 has their self-titled debut album due out April 10.  Check out the band’s official website for more information and a full list of upcoming tour dates.
