If you get it, I know an EXCELLENT luthier in the Nashville area that can make it look new again.
As I understand it, towards the end of the Ampeg era, the G58 was their most expensive offering - a Brazilian Rosewood dread with fancy rope binding around the entire body and soundhole. I'm thinking it was their attempt to compete with the higher end Martins. I'm going to drive up and check it out next week. I'm leaning toward getting it if the neck is in decent shape.
I thought the Hag sounded fine .. I played it .. Braz rosewood .. but the neck is wide .. the same neck they used for the 12 strings .. except it has a slotted head.
Never knew much about the G-58. Educate me. How does it differ from the G-10?
I'd be curious to know what you (or anyone else who has actually played one) think of the Haggard model. I've always heard that it wasn't one of their better efforts soundwise. There's a place up by me selling a G-58. I've always wanted a G-58, but this has a top repair that looks like it was poorly done. I'll post a picture if I decide to get it.
Good to hear from you Bill.
I'd love to meet you. Maybe you could come to my house for supper and play all 4 of my Grammers.
Ebay .... yes, they do seem to be in bad shape, over priced, and most are ones that have been on ebay before.
Guess everyone has decided to hang onto the ones they have. I am still searching for that RG&G G-10 that I can't seem to find.
In the Nashville area, I know of a Merle Haggard that is in PERFECT shape and a Johnny Cash that is in poor shape. I'd kinda like to have the Haggard but can't afford it right now.
Hi Dan, Sorry I haven't signed on for awhile. It's a nice thought to get together. I try to get down to Nashville a few times each year to hear some music and hunt guitars. The next time I'm headed that way I'll give you a heads up and maybe we can figure something out. By the way, is it just me or are the Grammers listed on ebay lately really overpriced and in poor shape?
Is anyone interested in an annual Grammer Jam? I'd LOVE to get together with all of you. Eat, tell stories, eat, play music, eat, take pics, eat! How about it?
Glad to see you here.
And .. I agree with you 100%!
Hello fellow Grammer Guitar owners! I have a G-10 that was a gift from wife back in the early 80's. It's by far the best sounding guitar that I've ever played. Wouldn't trade it for anything.
Thank you, Paul. Makes an old man feel good. I still think we need to all get together and jam with our Grammers.
