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

Hard to believe, but this is only the second Grosh Set-Neck we've had the in shop to date - the first was a custom order. Let's get this out of the way immediately - we've been fools to overlook this model for our inventory (granted Don wasn't making it for a stretch of time). So, so good. Why? Let's dig in. 

Like any Grosh, the build quality is off the charts great. Honestly, it's flawless. For starters, gorgeous natural binding, accented with beautiful black purfling, sets off the stunning quilted top in a way that is "just right" - not too much bling, not too little. The balance when playing both seated and standing is awesome (unlike a Les Paul which doesn't balance so well). It weighs 7lbs 14oz, which is quite light for an LP style guitar.

The neck carve feels like it came straight out of the late 50s Gibson factory - which is to say, chunky but not overly so. Let's call it a '59 carve. It fills the hand perfectly and allows for a more relaxed left hand technique. The silver and abalone dots really jump off the Brazilian board making it easy to navigate in both dark and bright environments (ie, on stage, etc...). 

This is a snappy, resonant, alive feeling guitar - plenty of sustain on tap as well. Plugged in you're greeted to muscular, open, and well-balanced tones. Don's pickups really sound fantastic and given they're designed to run in his own guitars, they're very dialed in. Clean through fuzzed out, you can cover a huge range of tones with ease. 

Condition: Near mint save for a few light signs of wear - one tiny scratch on the top (hard to spot), no fret wear or back worming. 

You can probably tell at this point why we started by saying we've been fools for not having more of these in stock. We're working on that, trust us. 

Priced with hardshell case. 

On consignment, no trades please.
