Vintage original circa 1964 Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman in original Burgundy finish.
A Beatle guitar! George Harrison used these.
This is the early version with the Filtertron humbucker pickup in the bridge and the Supertron humbucker in the neck position. They sound amazing. Super warm vintage tone.
Neck is straight and plays great with a good, low action. It's been set up by our tech here and it's playing great. The neck has suffered a headstock break and it has a professional neck repair.
Some signs of binding deterioration, common on these.
Original butter bean tuners are in excellent condition and work great, keeping the guitar well in tune. Original Gretsch Bigsby works great, too and the guitar stays in tune.
Guitar is all original, though one of the mutes is missing. No-one uses the mutes anyway.
A real resonant example that sounds amazing plugged in.
Get a nice vintage Gretsch Country Gentleman for a nice price.
Comes with original vintage Gretsch case, too!
