Gibson Chet Atkins Celebrity Series

This special-edition Celebrity Series of the Gibson Chet Atkins
electric acoustic guitar features a striking black-laquer body with a
custom swirling white pickguard. Mother of pearl stars are inlaid on
the neck. The visual presentation is eye-catching. The guitar comes
with a tan leather case complete with combination brass locks and a
padded leather handle. The case's interior is plush fucshia with a
matching satin guitar cover. Package includes original
never-completed Gold warranty card though the warranty probably would
not transfer, or be available to, the new buyer.
A small fleck of black laquer is missing near the bridge of the
guitar, on the side of the first string. It is almost invisible. And
a small ding appears on the back at the cutout of the neck. In
addition the original owner appears to have overpolished a small area
of the body's front -- or to have dulled the laquer with his
shirtsleeve -- at the very edge of the guitar that is covered by the
elbow when playing. It is almost undetectable. And a small area of
laquer on the the back of the neck is dulled apparently by sweat from
the player's hand. The case also has a few very minor dings from the
two airplane flights it's made in its lifetime. This guitar was sold
to me as mint and unused. Obviously the instrument has been handled
but very carefully. I never played the guitar. It was one of three
Gibson Chet Atkins guitars I bought but never needed deciding instead
to amp my acoustic classical guitars and to rely on archtop rather
than hardbody electrics. However, guitar playe!
rs like Dave Matthews who want acoustical ambience in group and stage
settings where feedback is a problem are well-served by the Gibson
Chet Atkins. And there's a better reason to own this guitar: It's
part of Chet's legacy to all of us who love to play and listen to the
guitar. Made in U.S.A. Serial No. 92941508

Gibson Chet Atkins Cherry Burst

Lovely cherry stain with mother-of-pearl stars inlaid on the neck.
Gold color hardware. The guitar comes with a tan leather case
complete with combination brass locks and a padded leather handle.
The case's interior is plush fucshia with a matching satin guitar
cover. Package includes original signed, Gibson USA Quality Assurance
card and the never-completed five-year warranty card though the
warranty probably would not transfer, or be available to, the new
buyer. There is hairline checking in the lacquer alongside the first
string where the neck ends. This flaw, probably age related, is
almost invisible. In addition there are two tiny, almost-invisible
divots in the lacquer between the fourth and fifth strings where the
neck ends; and one small divot at the edge of the body's face (in an
area the arm normally covers while playing). These minor cosmetic
flaws might be manufacturer's defects or to have occurred while in
storage. They do not detract from the guitar's beauty. I!
n addition, there are very light pickmarks above and below the
strings, probably originating when the guitar was unsold and being
tried out in the store. The back and neck are virtually immaculate.
I've never played the guitar. It was one of three Gibson Chet Atkins
I bought but never needed deciding instead to amp my acoustic
classical guitars and to rely on archtop rather than hardbody
electrics. However, guitar players like Dave Matthews who want
acoustical ambience in group and stage settings where feedback is a
problem are well-served by the Gibson Chet Atkins. And there's a
better reason to own this guitar: It's part of Chet's legacy to all
of us who love to play and listen to the guitar. Made in U.S.A.
Serial No. 90889501.
