Thank you, Revolution.  

You can even play it if you'd like!  You'd then know how George felt when he played his Country Gentleman.

It's both the semi-hollowbody and those Filtertrons that give the Country Gentleman its sound.  It's heavy guitar with, for me, a perfectly shaped neck with its ebony fretboard.  All that gold hardware against that dark mahogany.  Chet Atkins designed a beautiful and beautifully sounding guitar!

Gotta get a VOX AC-30 Twin to complete the effect!

Gretsch has reissued the George Harrison Country Gentleman




Gloss urethane walnut finish and no serial number on the headstock plate.  Other than that, it appears faithful to the original.
