Nicely done, Dan. That's a great add to your collection. I've haven't been keeping up with the Grammer market for a few weeks. Was it a local find or on ebay? I've been looking for and finally found a 1965 Silvertone Model 1454 hollow body electric on ebay for my son's birthday present. He loves The Black Keys and that's what their lead guitarist plays. If this one hadn't popped up, I was going to drive down to McMinnville to get one that was on Nashville's Craigslist. I'm curious, with your 12 strings, do you detune them a couple of steps to ease up on the neck when you're done playing?
Wall of Grammers
Well I did it .. picked up one more Grammer.
The one in the center is a 1967 RG&G Rosewood, #1865.
I have 1 RG&G and 3 Ampeg. I have to agree with you. I fell that there IS a difference. The way that prices for the Grammers seem to be going up .. I may have bought my last one. My $$$'s are LIMITED!
I never did go check out the G58R up here. I sort of hate to buy guitars locally because of the high sales tax in Cook County. Also, after picking up those two RG&G guitars at Gruhn's this year, the Ampeg ones don't really do much for me. Especially if they don't have the fingerboard inlay. A buddy of mine ordered a Grammer from the Nashville GC last year after the saleman on the phone said it was in good shape. When he got it, it obviously needed the neck reset. He returned it to their store up here where it was promptly put up on the wall and sold to somebody else. So it goes.
I did go play the G58M. I didn't like it because it has a much wider neck. It is all Maple .. that is what the "M" stands for. I let it pass. It is at Guitar Center Nashville.
Oh and on an informative note: Billy told me that after Ampeg started marketing his guitars is when the "G" designations started appearing , according to Billy himself " I only made 1 size and style guitar " some with select tone woods but I never had model numbers...So as far as G -10 ,etc.etc , these just refer to either the type of wood(s) used or in later cases a different body size.
Good to see more members joining my group, I have been away for a while so catching up on the latest here, I have 2 Brazilian Grammer guitars for sale, and to hit on a previous point, I brought these guitars back from obscurity and they have finally received the resurgence they deserve. I owned over 50 at one time and slowly sold them all but 2, 1 is my keeper ,the first version that only 100 were made and the 2 Brazilian rosewood models presently for sale, they are on our website at http://www.gregsguitars.net if your interested.
No ..I'm broke right now. I also thought that was a good price.
About the same, which surprises me. I thought the Brazilian one up here was priced that low because of the repaired top. I would think any quality Grammer should be in the $1800-$2500 range. You going to check it out?
I have just found a G-58M for 1399 .. Is that close to what they are asking for the one you found?
