1988 Gibson Chet Atkins CE Solid Body Nylon String Guitar - Sold

     Exceptional original condition. #5 of 20 made of this model in a special "Showcase Edition". In 1988 Gibson designated 9 different models for this Showcase Edition series, with each guitar having only 20 pieces produced - except an autographed gold top Les Paul "Pro", which had 40 pieces produced.
     Solid body nylon string electric guitar with cutaway. Set neck. 1 13/16" width at nut, 25 1/4" scale length. Beautiful Mahogany back and neck with Spruce top. Ebony fingerboard. Multiple bindings. Sunburst finish. Elaborate soundhole rosette. Decal on back of peghead stating 'Showcase Edition'.
     These guitars are respected by players as good nylon string jazz guitars. They are also respected by collectors as a high quality guitar designed by Chet Atkins for Gibson that was always produced in relatively low numbers.
