|Comments||The Gretsch Chet Atkins Tennessean, model 6119, was built from 1958 to 1980 as a lower-cost alternative to the Country Gentleman. and while it has always been a single cutaway guitar, in 1961 it thinned down about half an inch to its present profile. This 1967 example is in quite good condition and plays nicely as is. The body is sealed, with the F-holes painted on to reduce feedback. Overall a very cool guitar!|
