Here a great USA made Gretsch guitar, the now famous Country Gentleman Model, Chet Atkins, built in 1964. Sporting a gorgeous Walnut finish, it has all the trimmings of a top end model, and it plays very well indeed, too. This vintage instrument is in great shape for it age and despite years of use, still functions fully. Even the string dampers on this 81001 Model are working. The original case is worn, but has served the guitar well.
