The Story of the Gretsch Chet Atkins Guitars
Chet Atkins was already a successful, respected and extraordinarily busy artist and producer by the time Gretsch® approached him in 1954 with a singularly enticing offer...and even now, over 50 years later, the Gretsch Chet Atkins guitars still retain their appeal. From The Beatles to the Stone Roses, many classic bands have used a Chet Atkins - instruments of exceptional elegance, style and quality.
