My Favorite Guitars is the title of a recording by Chet Atkins. The guitars referred to are Atkin's signature Gretsch "Country Gentleman" electric guitar, a South American acoustic model he calls the "Los Indios Tabajaras", and a Spanish classical guitar. It is another example of Atkins' 1960's easy-going, easy-listening guitar playing.

Reissues[edit]

  • My Favorite Guitars was reissued on CD along with It's a Guitar World in 1995 on One Way Records.[2]
