This is a 1992 Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman. I recently acuired this from the aging original owner. He purchased it new, in 1992 as he was a huge Chet fan. Although, not much of a guitar player himself. Consequently, after purchasing the guitar, he put in his living room in a stand, and never played it. Never!When i got the guitar home, as you can imagine, it needed some TLC...I cleaned it thoroguhly, polished the frets, adjusted the truss rod with the inluded original tool, restrung it and set it up...It came back to life!The guitar is in excellent cosmetic condition, as it was rarely handled. There is absolutely 0 fret wear. The guitar is set up with 11's and plays incredibly. It really is fun to play! All electronics are original and function perfectly. This is a really good sounding guitar...obviously it does the Chet thing, but it's right in 335 territory as well...OK, the bad stuff...There is a slight amount of pitting on the gold hardware...Because it was in a stand that held the neck, there are some slight imperfections on the back of the neck, close to the body, where the stand reacted with the finish...There is some finish cracking where the fingerboard meets the neck. This is on the top side where the neck joint is...I tried to photograph it..Not a big deal, but it is there.Lastly, the tortoise shell arm rest is gone.. The base plate is there, but the tortoise part is not. Im sure an easy thing to replace, but I'll leave that up to you. If I keep the guitar, I may just remove the base plate and let it go as-is...This is a great guitar all the way around, and in really good shape for a 25 year old guitar...Comes with Original Gibson case.Thanks alot,Johnny
