I would think the quality has gone up. Consider now they are able to make a set neck........toolings and all.....the build process should've been more smooth than before?Originally posted by Bluewail
As someone who has owned 6 Grosh guitars with serial #'s ranging from #236 to the 1300's, I think the craftmanship has always been remarkable and the quality has been completely consistent over time. However, I also feel that his instuments get a lot better as they get older. Perhaps its the thin nitro finish that contributes to it, or just good wood selection to begin with, but to me Don's guitars have a unique "organic" feel and tone that seems to appreciate over time, like a good acoustic guitar does. So in that regard, the older ones can be considered better but not because they were made in any substantially different manner.
Sorry, I just edited my message.....so #236 is the one like I described? if so, I missed it. It's my first real nice strat.Originally posted by Bluewail
That's what I get for trusting my failing memory. I've got Retro Classic #278 - 2 pc alder, 2 tone sunburst, med/lg 7.25 maple cap neck, 6105 frets and Fralin Blues Specials.
