The guitar is an adaptation of the Gibson “Chet Atkins” solid acoustic concept made from swietenia mahogany with tone chambering and fitted with a WAS 3 pickup and preamp. However, with no information on the construction or chambering, the design was discussed with Sid West (West Active Systems) and Barry Kerr of Woodtone Guitars and the design evolved into a hollowed out solid body with 15mm thick sides and a 7mm top and back, all mahogany construction with the spruce top essentially for appearance only.

This guitar now belongs to John Sullivan.
