Grosh NOS Retro 20th Anniversary LTD (2014)


"The vision was clear—to build hand-crafted custom guitars with the best tone, looks, and playability available." - Don Grosh

Don and his team really pulled out all the stops for this mint 2014 NOS Retro 20th Anniversary LTD Strat! From the Brazilian fretboard with bullseye dots to the incredible birds eye maple neck, this may just end your quest for "the Strat." 

If you're in the market for a new Strat-style guitar that manages to capture the vibe of a great vintage Strat while simultaneously improving upon the design, look no further. There are no dings, scratches, or fret wear to speak of. The 10" radius provides a slightly more modern playing experience than a vintage Strat, but don't confuse modern with sterile - Don's guitars have a lot of heart and soul.

Played acoustically, this guitar has a loud and snappy voice with tons of sustain. Plugged in, this guitar proves itself to be much more versatile than the classic Strat thanks in large part to the clever blend control. The quintessential Strat tones are here in spades, but with more clarity and heft. These NOS Strats are really glassy but powerful - especially the bridge pickup with overcomes a lot of what we don't like about Strat bridge pickups. This one gets a little closer to a Tele bridge pickup which is awesome. 

This could easily be the only Strat you need in your collection! Priced with custom fitted hardshell case.
