Comments This is a brand-new, very limited edition model, based on the specifications of Chet Atkin’s 1959 Country Gent, except for the finish, f-holes, and nameplate. It’s got a full, clear sound with great definition between notes. Very comfortable to play, great looking, and even better sounding.
