Thread Name: Grimshaw Guitars
Subject: RE: Grimshaw Guitars
I just asked my father, who knew Emil Grimshaw, about the old hollow body electric Grimshaw I used to play around with in the 1970's and was surprised when Dad pulled the instrument out of a closet... I didn't think it was still around. My father bought it from Emil's son in the late 1960's on Goodge Street in London. Unfortunately, an electrician who worked on my parents' home in the 1970's moved the instrument from a shelf and dropped it on its face, cracking the sound board. It still plays fine but is obviously devalued. I'm wondering if it should be repaired or left as-is. I'd welcome any emails about this,
