Description

Chet Atkins came to Gibson with the idea for this guitar, he wanted a solid body guitar that would not feed back on stage but still had a great acoustic sound. What Gibson came back to Chet with was this, the CEC model. It is a solid body nylon strung guitar with acoustic chambers to assist with the acoustic sound. This guitar has a nice smooth sound when plugged in, equiped with a volume and tone control, and the often over looked volume control for each individual string located in the body cavity. This will make a great performing guitar that is sure to provide you with many decades more enjoyment.

If you are looking to play on stage and you don't want to worry about feed back, I couldn't imagine a better guitar than the CEC model from Gibson. It is a fun guitar to play with a nice easy nylon tone, it is even more adjustable than people give it credit for, pop the cavity cover and you find individual string volume control, that is a very nice feature in my opinion.
 
Designed to be used plugged in only, this guitar is a joy to play. The action is set low, but can easily be adjusted if you like it higher.
