The Retro Classic Hollow T is a semi-hollow version of the Retro Classic Vintage T and is a complete re-design of the traditional semi-hollow "T"-style guitar, from the body dimensions, contours, balance and routing to the neck design, construction and headstock.  The semi-hollow body adds harmonic complexity, richness and acoustic volume with a slightly softer attack.  The Retro Classic Hollow T can go from Country to Jazz to Funk to Blues to Rock with ease. Featuring master-grade, tone-tapped woods, ultra-thin nitro-lacquer finish and handcrafted Grosh pickups.

CRAIG'S POV

I have been playing Don Grosh's guitars for about 15 years now.  He's not only a fantastic builder, but also a great guy who is really in tune with what a player is striving to get out of a guitar.  That being said, one of my all-time favorite "go to guitars" from Don has been his Retro Classic Hollow T.  I always have one set up and ready to play in my studio.  What Don did here was to take the Thinline design concept and make it really work sonically.  Plugged in, it is very smooth and even sounding with a bit of compression and what I feel is the perfect amount of midrange scoop.  There is a certain amount of acoustic quality that seems to be present under all playing situations which, in turn, gives this model its individuality.

This particular guitar has a very unique and classy Black with White Grain Fill Finish.  It really works well with this lightweight resonant mahogany body.  This guitar sports Grosh's latest neck shape, the 50's neck carve.  This is really a wonderfully seductive neck carve and works perfectly with the medium large neck, the 1 5/8" nut width, and the tall narrow frets.  Definitely a combination I will use again.  Bottom line - from the satiny neck and lush Madagascar fingerboard to the beautifully grained mahogany body and versatile Grosh electronics, this guitar really inspires me to...... PLAY.

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

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!
