  • For Sale: Gibson Chet Atkins SST

    Please send me a private message if interested

    The SST was a design that combined Gibson's acoustic and electric guitar technology.

    The SST had a solid spruce or cedar top and a mahogany body. Unlike most acoustic-electrics the SST had no resonating chamber or soundhole. The acoustic sound came from a bridge mounted transducer with an active pre-amp. The SST had controls for volume as well as boost and cut for both treble and bass signals.

    The SST was offered in four finishes: natural, ebony, white, and cherry sunburst. It had mother of pearl inlays on the fretboard, headstock, and bridge and features gold plated hardware. Later models had star inlays and a Les Paul style headstock. It also sports Chet Atkins's signature above the fretboard
