Thread Name: Grimshaw Guitars
Subject: RE: Grimshaw Guitars

I've just bought a 1962 Grimshaw SB30 BASS guitar

Literally picked it up yesterday for 250

Slight damage where different pickups and god knows what else were screwed into the bodywork which has cracked the laquer etc

I love the way it looks - Les Paul shape mustard sunburst - especially the beaten used look, I play in a rock band and it fits the image (cringe) like a glove!
It plays extremely well, great smooth neck, worn pickups and very low action though I'm starting to worry a little about its ability to hold tune. Got a guarantee though

If anyone could offer any opinions etc I'd be most grateful
