Gibson / Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Cherry Red / 1994 / Guitar

Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Cherry Red from 1994. After Gretsch was sold to the Baldwin Company, the obligation Chet Atkins held for the company ended and it was around 1980 when he began a new business relationship with Gibson. The first model with his name, the Chet Atkins CE, was first put on sale in 1981. By 1987 Gibson designers had come up with the Chet Atkins Country Gentleman. The design was loosely based on the Gretsch 6122; however there are quite a few differences. It features a laminated maple 17" wide body with a Venetian style cutaway, 25 3/8" scale length, two bound f-holes, an ebony Pearse style arm rest, multi-bound pickguard and multi-layered black/white body bindings. The comfortable C shaped 3-piece maple neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard bound with pearl thumb print position markers and the headstock features the Crown and Gibson logo inlay and the Chet Atkins name engraved on the trussrod cover. The hardware is all gold plated, including the Gibson Schaller speed winder tuners, bigsby tailpiece, tune-o-matic bridge with ebony base and the covers of the 492R and 490T humbuckers. These pickups can be controlled using a 3-way switch, master volume, individual pickup volume and master tone pot. This instrument is all original, the electronics have been checked and are in perfect working order. Condition overall is Very Good; it has honest playwear and signs of use matching its age most noticable in the finish of the back, the gold hardware has slightly faded. Includes newer Hiscox hardshell case.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
