    I seriously can't wait to get it! I was looking for dual humbucker guitar with a Floyd and I already know I love all things Grosh. I stumbled upon this used at Sound Pure and couldn't resist. It just happens to be my favorite color... Score!!

    I love the style of those guitars. I never had the opportunity to play one or even see one in person. Post a video if you can.

    I'll do my best to post a video. It's hard to find the right balance of unique and familiar. I think the Electrajet is one the best examples of exactly this. It should take off right where this one ends...

    Awesome Guitar!
    Here's my Grosh Sunset '79 Production #1
    It's a special piece that was built by Grosh for Stu at Fat Sound as a custom one-off with 2 features not normally available:
    Just a volume control (no tone control needed!) & the ringed dot inlays in Pearl ringed with Abalone that are usually reserved for the Setneck models.
    Very, very cool guitar and one-of-a-kind.

    Enjoy yours!

    Nice! Love my 3 Grosh. Sunset 79 isn't really my style, but if it plays like a Grosh, it's going to be awesome!

    I hope you enjoy the guitar. It was mine and I am the original owner. I bought it from Fat Sound a few years back. It has very little playing time on it and never left my house.
    Enjoy!

    Great to know! Thank you so much! It will be played constantly and very well could turn into my number one.

    Congrats!

    I've liked every DG guitar I've picked up. Wonderful instruments.

    Congratulations. Those are very fine guitars. Love the neck feel. Grosh guitars are so undervalued and under-appreciated here on TGP. The EJ model in general is one of the most versatile guitars in years.
