"Never saw one like that before. Maybe a custom order. Interesting that the build sheet stops at final sanding and never indicates when it was finished. I'm thinking it was a one off finish by an employee. Is there a "2" stamped on the…"
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…"
"I think you're pretty much on target identifing this as a post-Ampeg guitar made toward the end of the production run. That's the highest serial number I've seen. My concerns with these later guitars is that the quality of…"
"You pretty much nailed it Dan. I think Don's guitar is from the last couple of years of Ampeg production. I basically divide Grammers into four groups. First, obviously, are the RG&G labled guitars. Next come…"
Just tossing my two cents in, but you really should get more than $1,000 for your guitar. I bought one at Gruhn's that was sold "as-is" for $750. It needed a neck reset, refret, bridge & headstock reglue and top crack…"
"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…"
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…"
"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?"
"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…"
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…"
"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…"
I had seen a photo of Bobby Helms with a double pickguard and thought it really looked great. When I spotted one, I had to grab it. I lucked into Ferlin's Husky's Grammer on ebay about a year before he passed. It was one…"
"Hi, Thanks for the comments on my guitars. Nice to find some folks who also appreciate Grammers. Up here around Chicago, I usually get blank stares whenever I mention the name. Dan, your dark sunburst is one of the…"
