Subject: RE: Grimshaw Guitars
I had a cherry red grimshaw les paul in the 70s. Sold it. Wish I hadn't. Bought a tobacco sunburst a couple of months ago after a long search.
Its even better than I remember it.
The output from the pickups was always low so a pre-amp is needed to lift it as bit and a bright channel as they are very bass weighted. Action is excellent.
I have had a few Gibsons and don't like them. personal taste I suppose.
Could put fatter pickups on it to liven it up a bit but I like the tone I get through a Fender concert 60.
