The build sheet in your guitar Dan is pretty cool to have ...
By the way I reached out to Butch Moore who gave me more info this guitar. I should have added it's a G-20 or G-30.
Hey everyone, just wanted to stop by and show off a Grammer I recently picked up at an auction. Let's start with the bad. Right off the bat the pickguard is not original. There is also some questions about the tuners as their Schaller tuners. This guitar had some moderate bellying around the bridge. On the inside it had some braces loosing grip that had to be re-glued. Due to budget we opted for an unintrusive bridge doctor, so instead of drilling a hole through the bridge this works with a brass bridge pin system. This will allow me to get something more significant done to the top in the future when there is more money laying around. The head stock as well had some issues with binding starting to come off so that was repaired as well. It's condition when purchased was probably a 4.5 out of 10. With the repairs it's probably around a 6.5 out of town (as I realize some people hate bridge doctors especially on collectible guitars). It has normal wear and tear but nothing too crazy. Had the top been totally removed and fixed it would probably be a 7.5 or 8 out of 10 (if you buy these number rankings). What really drew me to it was it's burst color, it has a very deep reds and mellow yellows which the camera simply do not do justice. The body is maple with some birdseye on showing up on the back. I'm not a big fan of the ply body but it is what it is. It's a blue label with the serial # 1871. The sound is interesting it has a very loud kind of airy sound to it. Hard to tell if this is due to brass bridge pins but the sustain on it is pretty awesome. All and all I'm pretty happy with it.
I have several Grammer's for sale if anyone is interested
Yes, I would say '66.
low 1800's serial number = 1966??
can anyone tell me the likelyhood of this pickguard being original??? i have seen one other that covers the rossette??
