Don Grosh Retro Classic


Don Grosh Retro Classic

I was just visiting Austin on vacation in 2005 with no intention of buying a guitar but after playing this one, that all changed. It was a used model, still very expensive (for me), but that sound…..good grief, it was the best sounding guitar I’d ever played.

The combination of a swamp ash body and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard give this guitar an incredibly articulate, bright tone. It lacks the midrange punch that I like for most blues playing but every time I play it, I love how it sounds.
