Second page of a two-page spread on the Chet Atkins Classic Electric; continued from the page 10. This page gives detailed specifications of the model, and shows an example in Ebony (black) finish. On the model's launch, it was only available in Antique natural (see previous page), but by the second price list of 1983 (June 15th), available finish options had expanded to include Ivory (white) and Cherry Sunburst - with Ebony not includeduntil the list of January 1984.
US list prices remained at $999 (1 13/16" width neck) / $1099 (2" neck) through 1983, dropping to $839/$939 respectively in January 1984.
