Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman - 1964

By Gretsch

This old brown beast sounds as big, bold and beautiful as it looks! Piano-like clear tones with mellow mojo across the board, comfortable medium neck, back pad, mute switch, mute pads and kidney bean tuners that feel great.. all with binding intact!  Some of the original tuners broke so they were replaced with a period-correct set of Grover’s. The bridge was replaced at some stage with a tunematic bridge that stays in tune! This one has been gigged for most of its life and is nice and gig-worthy now.  There are the expected dings and bumps and some nice checking, but overall it’s in great shape for its age! The Filtertron pickup in the bridge is wonderful and the Supertron pickup in the neck is a cracker. If you are into vintage guitars you’ll like this one, if you are into Gretsch guitars you‘ll love this one! Comes with its original Australian Stamford hard shell case
