Comments This excellent instrument, the Gretsch Chet Atkins Country GentlemanG6122-1958, is a re-creation of the first-year, 1958 model Country Gentleman used by Chet Atkins. The build quality is very high, the guitar is very comfortable to hold and play with lots of room to move around on the fingerboard, and it sounds just great. If you play any kind of electric fingerstyle guitar, you need to check this guitar out.
