Thread Name: Grimshaw Guitars
Subject: RE: Help: Grimshaw Guitars
Prior to getting my Martin in 1961, I had a Grimshaw although I don't remember what model it was. I had been in London at the Roundhouse pub to see Alexis Korner and his group which included the late Cyril Davis who played a 12-string guitar made by Emile Grimshaw. So impressed was I that I contacted Grimshaw about one for myself but he was quoting such a long time to make one that I decided to go for one that he had in stock; a 6-string cutaway. It was OK but it wasn't the guitar for me, I think it was mainly a jazz guitar and certainly couldn't match the Martin that I bought to replace it - and which I've had for the last 41 years.
