Thread Name: Grimshaw Guitars
Subject: RE: Help: Grimshaw Guitars
Sorry, can't help technically but I believe Martin Taylor was inspired by the beautiful Grimshaw Guitar held by Val Doonican on an LP cover and years later when he met the man himself and told him of this he (Mr. D) actually gave him the guitar. There's also a story that when Cyril Davies came out of Grimshaws with his brand new 12 he broke it over some yob's head for swearing at a woman.Just thought I'd mention these bits of useless information.
