No "2" on it.
I think the build sheet stops because it was left inside the guitar.
The Ferlin Husky Grammers ... yes, I played them both. And a Fender Newporter that they also have for sale. All played "excellent"! They are just out of my price range.
Have any of you ever seen a "red" Grammer like this one?
Or .. one with the "build sheet" still inside?
Grammer greenburst in the shop, Billy (R.I.P.)had one just like this and I sold another greenburst to his younger brother as well.
It is my understanding, from talking to Billy and others who actually worked in the shop, that Billy was the strictest on quality control. He was very proud of his family name and would let nothing out the door unless it was PERFECT! In the beginning he would destroy ANY guitar he felt was not perfect. This slowed production GREATLY! Billy only produced about 1,000 guitars before Ampeg came into the picture. It is my understanding that MANY of those did NOT "make it". Shortly after Ampeg came in someone else was in control of quality and most made it to the public.
I never asked Billy for a number of ""survivors".
If I had to guess, I would say about 600 to 700 RG&G's and about 3500 to 4000 Ampeg and post Ampeg.
Greg .. and all you other guys .. pitch in your thoughts.
Thanks Dan. From reading various websites I have come to the conclusion that the total production of Grammers is rather small Say 4 to 5000 of which many never left the shop due to quality control issues. Anyone have any idea as to how many Grammers were sold?
Tanks Bill Here's the pic. Indecently it is the only Grammer I have seen with a maple faced head stock
Welcome to the group. If you post a photo of your guitar, I'm sure you'll get comments from some of the other guys. Rough estimate based on your description would be one made in the late Sixties. You're right about the neck. They remind me of early Hummingbirds. Bill
Howdy, Good to see so many Grammer junkies. I have a G58m, serial number 4294 Large "G", helmet logo, with the railroad track inlay on the neck. The neck is the smallest on any guitar I have ever owned, 1" at the nut. Back and sides are birds eye maple. I have owned this guitar for 25 years any info on the date of manufacture would be appreciated
