Joining the only other 12-string model in the Gretsch catalogue-the G5422DC-the new Chet Atkins Country Gentlemen model features classic Gretsch styling along with some unique appointments like parallel tone bar bracing and a zero fret. The double cutaway bound arched body comes with a natural polyurethane finish and simulated f-holes, ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl neo-classic thumbnail inlays and 22 medium frets and a bound headstock with gold nameplate.
Powered up with a pair of High-Sensitive Filter’Tron pickups, other hardware includes a 12-string Adjusto-matic bridge with a rosewood base, 3-position pickup selector and a master tone switch which offers options for high end roll-off at medium or ‘slight’ levels and ‘pickup ‘wide-open’ position. Other premium features include gold Grover Rotomatic tuners and a ‘G’-cut out tailpiece. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.
