CRAIG'S POV

This 20th Anniversary LTD is a grand rendering of Don Grosh's NOS Retro model guitar.

This is how Grosh describes the NOS Retro:

The ultimate "traditional" strat-style instrument with unmatched tone and playability. Very similar to our Retro Classic in tone, the NOS Retro combines the traditional "S" shape and features with the unmatched construction, tone and playability of a Grosh. The NOS Retro features a true "S" body shape, vintage pickup routing and traditional truss rod construction. For the player who must have the look and features of a traditional strat-style guitar but demands the ultimate in tone and playability, it doesn't get any better than the NOS Retro. And like every custom Grosh guitar, the NOS features master-grade, tone-tapped woods, ultra-thin nitro-lacquer finish and handcrafted Grosh pickups.

I’ve had a relationship with Don for many years. Initially it was as a professional player and then when I decided to open up CR Guitars, Grosh was the first builder I approached.

Don always gives 200 percent in all his builds, so for this very very special 20th anniversary guitar I gave Don free reign to build me the best of his best. He knows me; knows how crazy picky I am, so I knew this guitar would come out special. And wow!! special it IS. The master grade woods just speak to me. Birdseye maple neck with a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with just the right neck profile. A one-piece swamp ash figured body that is beautifully painted in a transparent Mary Kay nitrocellulose lacquer finish. It’s light weight and startlingly resonant acoustically. Plugged in, it comes alive with the rich strat-ness that you would expect from any masterbuilt S-style guitar. To me this guitar represents Don at his very best. The woods, the inlays, the hand wound pickups as well as his well thought out electronics. This is the only LTD I will be receiving so don’t let this pass you by. It’s a truly superlative guitar!

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT GROSH GUITARS
Grosh Guitars was founded by Don Grosh in 1993 with the singular goal of producing the world's finest custom electric guitars and basses. They achieve this goal by utilizing a "bench style" building process (as opposed to a production line). Their team of highly experienced builders constructs each instrument as a complete cohesive creation, utilizing state of the art building techniques combined with superb attention to detail. Their exclusive neck and fretting processes delivers perfect intonation, stunning playability and a neck that feels broken in and friendly. Every product is handcrafted in the Grosh factory in Broomfield, Colorado. PURE PASSION - PURE TONE!
