This guitar had a Bigsby on it at some point, several screw holes tell the story. Now has a new Adjustamatic bridge. The original is long gone.
- Unusual factory features
Rare custom sunburst finish, Schaller tuners, fancy abalone neck inlays, early bound pickguard that says "Chet Atkins" instead of "Super Chet", fancy tailpiece with ebony insert & abalone inlay. Appears to be a very early Model 7690 (maybe it could be called a Model 7692..;-).

No clue about its history. Been owned for several decades by a music dealer in Shreveport, LA. The guitar is in excellent condition with a few minor dings & finish chafes. There is no finish checking & the hardware is in excellent condition with no oxidation with the gold finish very intact. The back has a decent bird's eye pattern in the wood. The original frets show little wear.
