    1963 Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Brown Stain Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 54722.
    Just like George Harrison of The Beatles used to play! Original finish is bright and clean with minor nicks, dings and scratches. Weather checks are also present. Significant but honest playwear to the finish on the back of the neck. The neck is very straight. Frets are low and flat. Bridge is changed to a Gibson ABR-1 Tune-o-matic. All metal parts show even wear to the gold plating. Minor crack in the pickguard. Double mute works perfectly. This guitar shows as one that has been played but never abused. Some screws are missing from the back plate, under the pad. Some corrosion to the tailpiece at the butt. A few minor cracks in the binding. The truss rod cover is cracked in half. Slight discoloration at the treble side horn. 8.2 lbs. Original hard case included. Condition: Very Good.
    From the Borst Electric Guitar Collection
