Description

This is a mid-1960s Grammer G-58 from Nashville & a wonderful over the top example. I remember these from back then, company started by Billy Grammer, a then-country music star. This one is in remarkable, original condition, plays great, has its own unique sound and tons of it. I’d be surprised if many of you weren’t familiar with the legacy of these already. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one this nice except one in a Turquoise’burst from many years ago, This was sold new at H & H Music Studios in Quincy, Illinois. This was made in the best period of all Grammer guitars, has all-solid woods and is from before the company was taken over by Ampeg. It’s got a figured birdseye maple back and sides and a spruce top, and an original finish that can only be described as “different”, a kinda cherry sunburst. It’s got beautiful black & White front & back body bindings. Its cool headstock is as wild as any makers. Its fingerboard has some neat inlays up & down its neck. It also has an early set of Kluson double like tuners prior to switching to Grovers. Its inside factory label is missing. It’s got huge tone & that thumpy compression that only those rare maple-bodied guitars can ever have, really hard to put it down once you pick it up and start getting into it, inspirational I’d say. It’s an unbelievably cool icon of the 1960s American-made guitar world, and on top of that it’s a really great guitar. It’s exceptionally clean & comes in its original black/yellow lined hard case.
