This is a 1989 Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman. It was the very first CACG made by Gibson . It belonged to Chet and was one of his main guitars for the latter years of his life. The guitar now belongs to country musician Steve Wariner and was bequeathed to him after Chet passed away.
Above is a close up of the label just inside the F-hole of the guitar.
You can see where Chet reached in with a pen when he first
received the guitar and wrote: “1st orange model 89”.
Me and Steve.
