The bridge shape and the headstock shape are similar to the Gibson but those on the Sand are shaped somewhat differently. However, the 4 slider bars on the upper bout don't appear in any photos of the Gibson CE that I've seen online, but are on some of the Sand guitars. I played around in Photoshop with some screen grabs from the video of the closeups of the sound hole and headstock. While the video and resulting still images were blurry and hard to read, the sound hole has printing which looks very much like the words "Chet Atkins" and the headstock looks like the logo there says "Gibson". As I said though, the images were hard to read completely accurately.
As Chet mentions in “Me and My Guitars”, “I liked it so well I started playing it. To avoid any problems with Gibson, I had a Gibson decal put on the headstock of it. Then I persuaded Gibson to make a deal with Kirk and they started making the guitar using his design. It was to become one of my favorite guitars, especially for recording”.
