I really love good clean guitar of all genres. Chet Atkins was a major influence on many of them. I took a few liberties with this pattern by Charles Dearing and knocked this out on my scrollsaw. The guitar neck was especially tedious. I hope you all like it.

Wonderful scroll job. I am thinking of maybe doing this on later this year for my son. He can hang it in his music room next to the BB King portrait.

Very well done….

Wow!! That’s stunning! Truly an art piece … (P.S.; I have a 1970 Gretch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman that I bought with my newspaper route money as a kid :) ) I haven’t played in ages. I’m officially a hack. Glad I came across your post. It’s inspirational. Just may pick it up again!
