Our latest Mendocino from Grez Guitars features a Redwood top that came from a wine cask salvaged from Rodney Strong Vineyards in California, making it one of the most unique Mendocino's we've gotten to date.
Featuring a 1-piece, hollowed out Honduran mahogany body, this Mendocino is really lightweight, balanced, and very alive and resonant. Simply put, this is the kind of instrument that makes you want to play more. It's beautifully made, has a chunky, late-50's Gibson-esq carve with a slinky overall feel, and sounds amazing both unplugged and plugged in.
The Lollar Goldfoils are a perfect match for this guitar, delivering open, airy, killer chime...clean tones are a no-brainer. Plugged into a Victoria Club Deluxe, there's both an articulation and fatness to the tone that does remind us of an ES-335, but with a more open/chimey tone. With some gain? Classic low-fi swampiness that's incredibly fun and inspiring.
Priced with a Reunion Blues gig bag.
