Gibson Chet Atkins CE Electric Guitar - Spruce & Mahogany - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


An innovative and groundbreaking guitar for its time, the Gibson Chet Atkins CE was made by request of Chet himself to create an electric nylon string guitar that utilized a chambered Mahogany body design to prevent feedback while still possessing certain acoustic qualities. The result was a feedback-free, stage friendly guitar that is able to be amplified at concert volumes. Gibson uses its HEX Piezo Bridge Transducer, and active preamp, volume, and tone control to amplify the CE and create the nylon string tonality Chet had been chasing. The Gibson Chet Atkins CE paved the way for countless builders, has been used by names such as  Mark Knopfler, Sting, David Gilmour, and Tonino Bailardo, and is perfect for those looking for a nylon string that can be amplified on stage or in the studio, without any worries of encountering feedback.
