⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean Wine Red, 1996

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean Wine Red, 1996

The late, great Chet Atkins was closely associated with Gretsch guitars, but after Gretsch closed models like the Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean appeared. The Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean is a single cutaway, thinline archtop electric, with a solid center block to deter feedback. This was a feature that Chet had long sought from Gretsch, and the closest they would come to that was the late 1950’s Trestle bracing. In structure, this model has many similarities to Gibson ES thinline semi-hollows.

Huss & Dalton T-OO14 Rosewood Natural, 2019

Huss & Dalton T-OO14 Rosewood Natural, 2019

The Huss & Dalton T-OO14 Rosewood is a fantastic mid-size steel string acoustic guitar, based on the classic ‘OO’ body size. This design dates to 1877 as a 12-fret gut string instrument, and evolving into the steel-string, 14-fret model in 1932 as banjo players moved to guitar. The OO body design is very well balanced and articulate, and wonderful for finger style playing.
