I'm not that familiar with the Grosh, but I did drive 80 miles to try an alder-bodied relic '56 CS strat. The neck on the Fender was very nice, and the the guitar was enjoyable overall. I'm not consumed by GAS, but I'd like to try other '56s, as soon as I can swing it. In the same rough price range falls a Grosh Classic S. Has anyone played both? There's some good threads in the Small Luthiers forum, but I'd appreciate opinions from anyone who might have had a chance to play an ash '56 or this model Grosh.
