Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.

Sad to hear of Billy Grammar's passing this week. He was a great American guitar builder and will surely be missed by the acoustic guitar world.

Yes, very interesting story behind his company and the instruments he produced for that relatively short span of time.

I agree Ray, I have a 1970 G10 Grammer and they are fine guitars. It's my hybrid Martin/Gibson since that's how Billy (according to things I've read) come to design the Grammer. Tore apart a Martin and a Gibson and combined the best of both. I bought it from the first owner in 1978 for $200. Billy's guitars were played by many music greats in their time.



I posted a picture over in the Small Body Guitar group.


Hey there Jud fellow Seagullian.  :)



You're right Jud, the whole history behind the Grammer guitar is interesting, it even has ties to George Gruhn of Gruhn's guitars who was at one time a partner with I think a fellow that eventually bought the Grammer assets when they went out of business.
