1992 Gibson Chet Atkins SST Black w/OHSC (USED)
Up for sale is a nice 1992 Gibson Chet Atkins SST Acoustic Electric Guitar in good condition but does have some major playwear and some serious mojo! It does not affect the overall stability or playability of the instrument. As far as the finish - the top in the pick guard area has wear going through the finish. The back its fair share of minor dents, dings and scratches(see pics). The pre-amp control plate has a fair amount of oxidation. Classic black finish with an ebony fretboard. The guitar is set up nice and plays decent. The truss rod on this one is maxed out and the action cannot adjust any lower. The frets are in good condition and we recently leveled. The electronics sound very good and natural. The bridge on this one has been re-qlued by our tech shop. The headstock area has a bit of delamination going on, but it's good player with a comfortable feel. Please see pics for full cosmetic details and please be aware of the issues described before making an offer.
Includes Gibson hard shell case.
