Only 25 Super 4000 guitars were made, making this likely the rarest Chet Atkins model. This archtop guitar features a thin cutaway body with a carved spruce top, maple back and sides, and a 14-fret mahogany neck, all in a cherry sunburst finish. The floating humbucking pickup and slider volume control are mounted on the tortoise plastic pickguard. Gold hardware, including a Super 4000 tailpiece and Sealfast style tuners with pearloid stairstep buttons, add to the visual appeal. This incredible guitar is in excellent condition
