for sale: Chet's personal double-cut CG

Postby russcochran » Sat Sep 08, 2012 9:25 pm

In my book CHET ATKINS——ME AND MY GUITARS (2001), there is a photo of the double cutaway Gretsch Country
Gentleman guitar that was personally owned and used by Chet. While he used his favorite 1959 single-cutaway CG
for recording, when he went on the road or on a concert Gretsch wanted him to play the newer double cutaway
model. This is that guitar. It went to England and Africa with him, he used it in his concerts with Boots and Floyd,
and you can find several You Tube videos of him playing this exact guitar. I purchased the guitar from Paul Yandell
in 2001 and it is in excellent condition. In fact, nobody has played the guitar since Chet stopped playing it, which
I think was when the Super Chet model came out. The guitar is pictured in my book leaning against a console radio
in Chet's office. interested buyers can contact me at
