1989 Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman w/ OHSC!
What a beauty! These are great guitars and this one is no exception. Very complete guitars with excellent specs and made very well. This particular one is pretty clean overall with some light marks here and there and one spot of wear that goes through the finish on the back and a ding on the front of the headstock. The guitar plays well and sounds great! Check the specs and you'll see that these would be very expensive these days if made new again. They ceased production around 2000. This is the earlier model with the unique red neck inlays, ebony board, tuners with winders, etc. Comes with original hardshell case with some scuffs and marks.
Some three decades after Nashville superstar Chet Atkins debuted his original Country Gentleman model from the Gretsch company, he approached Gibson with some design refinements for a new version of the legendary model. The new instrument would be shallower in depth to make it easier to hold, have wider spaced pickups to facilitate fingerstyle play, and have a lighter weight body block (the guitar itself isn't light) to add sustain and curb feedback. A handily placed master volume knob, classic Bigsby, and generous 1 3/4" neck all ensured that the player had everything right at the fingertips. The result was the Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman.
