Fresh off the bench of the Grez Guitars workshop - a Quilted Redwood top Mendocino loaded with TV Jones T-Armond pickups!
Featuring a 1-piece, hollowed out Honduran mahogany body and mahogany neck, this Mendocino is incredibly lightweight (5lbs 3oz), balanced, and very alive and resonant (like all Grez guitars). Simply put, this is the kind of instrument that makes you want to play more - it pulls music out of you. New songs, new riffs, new licks...whatever gets you excited about playing, this guitar seems to cut right to the chase and pulls that out of you. It's beautifully made, has a chunky, late-50's-meets-early 60s Gibson-esq carve with a slinky overall feel.
Another fun aspect of the Mendocino is it sounds amazing both unplugged and plugged in, perfect for couch practice sessions sans amp.
The T-Armond pickups sound amazing in this guitar, delivering open, airy, killer chime - think Gretsch Duo Jet-ish tones. It's easy pull Gretsch-like chime from it - with elements of a great ES-335 mixed in (the design goal of the Mendocino model). With some gain? Classic low-fi swampiness that's incredibly fun and inspiring.
An outstanding guitar that offers a new spin on the award-winning Mendocino (and who can deny the Collings Julian Lage 470 vibes, right?).Priced with a Reunion Blues gig bag.
