Gibson Chet Atkins CE-AN Solid Body Nylon String Acoustic-Electric, Secondhand

Nylon String Thinbody Cutaway with Spruce Top in Antique Natural Finish and Rosewood Fingerboard with 1 13/16" Nut

Gibson introduced the Chet Atkins CE and CEC nylon string guitars in 1981, and they proved popular because they allowed for feedback-free playing at amplified stage volumes. These guitars are heavier than one might expect, but that is on purpose. The lack of a large resonating chamber and the added weight of the mostly solid body design helps to defeat feedback, especially on a nylon string guitar used for amplified performance.

Produced from 1981 to 2005, the Gibson Chet Atkins CE and CEC models are nearly identical, with the primary differences being the fingerboard material (rosewood or ebony) and the nut width. The bodies are made from solid mahogany and feature sound chambers to reduce weight and to make the sound more acoustic.

 

 

  • Solid spruce or cedar top.
  • Mahogany neck
  • Neck joint location at the 12th fret (like a classical guitar)
  • Scale length: 25 1/2″
  • Multi-element piezo bridge pickup
  • Battery-powered preamp
  • Volume, Treble and Bass Control



This guitar includes its original hardshell case, which is in good condition apart from the handle, which has come off.
