Watch Dan Auerbach Examine a Vintage Chet Atkins Guitar on American Pickers


Dan Auerbach American PickersIn case you missed Dan Auerbach on the season premiere of American Pickers earlier this year – which we seemed to have done – video has surfaced of the Black Keys guitarist’s appearance.

Why blog it in this space? Well, the object of Auerbach’s interest during the episode happens to be a special Gretsch guitar.

Auerbach met up with Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz of Antique Archaeology in Nashville, who came bearing a vintage Chet Atkins model that once belonged to someone named “Rudy,” according to stickers on the weathered body.

“The Chet Atkins model is probably the most desirable Gretsch, I’d say,” Auerbach noted. “I’ve never even played one.”

It seemed that Auerbach was dead set on making this find the first of its kind in his collection.

“There’s a difference between guitars that collectors collect and ones that players use,” he said with a smile. “This one is a player’s guitar.”

Watch Auerbach’s reaction in the clip below.
