1990 Gibson Tennessean at Elderly

Postby Ray Bohlken » Thu Jul 03, 2014 5:23 pm

I ran across this 1990 Chet Atkins Tennessean at Elderly. It looks to be in great shape and the price is pretty good, too. I have a 1990 and I really enjoy mine...great neck and the size is perfect for me. It's the first year they made them, too. The master latch on the case is broken, though.

Many Gretsch models look nice but the most perfect one for my hands has always been the 6122-1959 ever since I first touched one in 2009 at Sweetwater. It's just the right width. Even the '67 CG that I've owned since 1969 is still a fraction too narrow.

Rande, I have a 6122-1959 Nashville Classic, and you're right, that neck is wonderful. The Tennessean's neck is real close to that size and I don't have a problem going back and forth between them. The Tennessean has a smaller body and is sometimes more comfortable to play and with the stop tail piece, it gets a little brighter sound.
I hope you have a great 4th of July. Take care.
