G6122-1959 Chet Atkins HALL OF FAME Country Gentleman

Paul asked me to post a photo of the new HOF Country Gent. Notice the color, the highly flamed maple, and the outlined f holes.

I had trouble getting the photo to post properly, so here's a link:

And here's what the headstock will look like, with the special nameplate:

It's one beautiful guitar.

Thanks,

Craig

You just ruined my day Craig! :cry: Man I wish I had the money to buy one of those! I would like to have a Country Gentleman again and this one is my favorite color with Chet's 59 specs! I'm guessing it has the 1 3/4" neck right?

Paul said it has regular '59 specs, except for the color, the f holes (bound/inlaid), and the nameplate. (By the way, that's Mr. Gretsch holding the guitar.)

P.S. Thanks for posting the photo.

Craig,
(By the way, that's Mr. Gretsch holding the guitar.)

I'm guessing that he's a visitor at the Terada factory where they make Gretsch guitars in Japan?
