Considered by many to be a modern day classic, the Grosh Electrajet is an extremely versatile, flawlessly built, tone-filled instrument that's attracted the likes of Mark Knopfler and Steve Miller.
While the Electrajet's body shape tips its hat to the offset Fender designs, in-hand, the EJ has a similar feel to a great Strat (perhaps it's because their bodies similar dimensions). We asked Don and crew to build us an SG-inspired Electrajet Special - mahogany body, short scale, G-90 pickups...
Loaded with a pair of Grosh's own G-90s pickups, one would expect a pure Gibson-like, midrange drenched, slightly aggressive P90 tone from this gorgeous SG-inspired Electrajet Special, but that's not exactly where this guitar lands tonally. There's a bit more Fender snap and clarity on board than you'd expect with this type of pickup - that's a great thing to our ears, btw.
We've used Electrajets on sessions with Fenders and Gibsons and what we heard was a guitar that is coming from a similar place as these classics, but with more low-midrange girth and heft. Imagine a beefy sounding Tele and you'll get a sense of what's possible w/the bridge pickup. The neck pickup sounds like a fatter Strat neck pickup and both pickups together will get you close enough to a LP Special's middle position for rock n' roll.
The playability is off the charts - low action, perfect setup and fretwork, and a total weight of 6lbs 11oz. Grosh guitars are known for their fretwork and this EJ Special is no exception. You'll be hard pressed to find an easier playing guitar, no question.
This Electrajet Special is a phenomenal guitar that could easily replace a few guitars in your collection. Not to be missed. Priced with hardshell case.
