    Our price:

    This Kirk Sand Electric Nylon was Chet Atkins’ most favorite nylon electric guitar, offering light weight, professional amplification and easy playability combined with the finest craftsmanship.

    The Kirk Sand Electric Nylon is perfect for players who have been trained classically and want to branch out to an electrified style. This gorgeous Kirk Sand electric nylon string features a high grade Spruce top and Mahogany back sides. Designed specifically for Chet Atkins as a lightweight alternative to his Gibson, this attractive instrument is especially well suited for life on the big stage. For over five decades, Kirk Sand has been one of the most innovative and successful American luthiers. His clientele is a veritable “who’s who” of the guitar world, including such luminaries as Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Richard Smith, Lenny Breau, Kevin Eubanks, Tommy Emmanuel, and many others.

    Kirk installed the Barbera Soloist pickup with an LR Baggs Deluxe Acoustic Equalizer for ultra-high performance. The focused tonal clarity, string to string balance and incredible power of projection they provide sets a new standard for sound quality and tonal projection that is truly a game changer for live performance with an acoustic guitar. The Barbera has separate sensors for each string, which allows for an unprecedented amount of control over your amplified sound. The LR Baggs equalizer/preamp has five top mounted sliders/knobs that control the EQ, Midrange boost, Volume, Presence and a power-on/off LED.  The amplified sound is among the best available to nylon strings players: rich and warm, with lots of detail and a natural, acoustic like response. The ergonomic neck profile and relatively short scale make a highly technical playing a breeze. This beauty is set up for very low action, which can be adjusted. She is in excellent condition. There are a few small scratches on the top behind the bridge. Give it a try and see why so many of the world’s top players choose a Sand! She has been played, but her former owners treated her well. She is in excellent condition with only some minor dings on the top and back.
