Gibson Chet Atkins CEC Classical Electric Guitar
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-04-19)
Price : US $1,470
This is a Gibson Chet Atkins CEC solid body classical electric guitar (Serial # 01221372). I acquired this instrument from a friend about 4 years ago and at that time I had planned on using it to do some recording. However, due to family and full time job responsibilities it ended up in a closet and was forgotten about until I ran across it while doing some cleaning.
Because I no longer have the time to dedicate to playing, I am placing it up for auction.
In preparation for this auction I took the guitar to Turner Mires in Madison, TN to have the frets dressed, the neck adjusted and the bridge re-glued. (It appeared that the bridge had been removed by the previous owner but for what reason I donít know). Turner Mires did guitar work for Chet Atkins, Paul Yandel and many others well known players so I figured he was the best man for the job (Check out his web site at: www.turnersmusiconline.com)
The instrument plays and sounds great. Outside of few small dings on the front lower bout and one small ding on the headstock (see pictures), the guitar looks relatively new. Unfortunately, I do not have a hard-shell case for the guitar but it does have a sturdy Gibson USA gig bag with green plush lining. **The shipping cost listed does include the insurance on the instrument**
Because Gibson no longer owns the rights to Chet Atkins name and will no longer be producing any guitar bearing the Chet name, the winner of this auction will have a nice piece of Gibson history.
