It Dager,
really easy to play and full-bodied, the sound is unique.
I would say a mix of Gibson and Fender sounds, unique !!

Lovely guitar, exactly like mine. Mine is also a Nashville Classic made in 2003 like Roger´s. However, it sounds so much better in Paolo´s hands, for some reason or other! An old friend of mine used to own a Country Gentleman in the early sixties, and he said mine felt exactly the same as his did back then. It almost played itself he said.

Your telling me ! . I am a Gretsch man ,to me the greatest guitar that Chet made the best sound come from.
With that Standel 25 L 15 ... Just My Opinion but it did something back in the `50 thru the `60 ,my brain and
Heart listened for hours on hours and for years struck me DEEP and Greatful Mr. Guitar for his Greatness. Their
will never one as tallented , great with foresight ect.. I am lucky even thou it puts me here at this time as an old
man but wouldn`t have missed those early years back then when my father had the since and understanding of
what a guitar at its Greatest should sound Like with Chet`s Playing.. What a Time and Great Music !

We are all lucky to understand this in this time of Such Tasteless music these days . I cringe at all the music
that has been changed to sound like country rock .. I don`t get it ---and don`t want to . And last of all those --
you can get mad if you want but if you have ever been exposed to any kind of G O O D Music I just don`t get it
of those who can in the least handle C-rap ! .. Hundreds of years of masters of music to sink so low . The site can shut this letter off but someone needs to say it . we are loosing All our Great Culture and everyone is to affraid
to say anything about i t ! Bless you who who have the mind to see the real sound of Music . . Thank you Chet
and Family for helping him make it through the years .

I'm not afraid to say it! My biggest problem isn't as much what's out there now but what is MISSING! A lot of the earlier qualities that attracted me to music don't seem to show up in today's music! Lack of rich harmony, clear tones instead of disitortion, etc.
