    I've seen threads of this sort for a lot of other small builders...did a search and couldn't find one for Grosh. So, I thought I'd start one. Pardon me if there is a dedicated Grosh pr0n thread already.

    Here's my Mary Kay White Retro Classic purchased from TGP's Suhr Rodney:

    [​IMG]

    BRW fretboard, medium/large neck, Dunlop 6105s, currently has DiMarzio Areas (which are for trade/sale in the emporium). The nitro has started to wear very nicely on the back of the neck, and it has sunk into the wood in a few places, too. VERY cool. It's my first Grosh, but I can maaaaaaybe forsee a Retro Classic VT in the future.

    PS: props to Suhr Rodney for the pic. :dude

    This one was mine (it was one phenomenal guitar), but unfortunately I had to sell it because the neck just wasn't working with my hands (just too small): [​IMG]

    I don't have a pic to post because mine isn't born yet :D. However, I'm getting a Set Neck in the copper-burst finish. I can't wait.

    dwes, I played that very guitar (the last one) while it was at Mass - nice choice! I came very close to buying it myself.

    Thanks, mprvise.
    I really like the black limba back and neck ( the top doesn't suck either). I picked it up from a fellow Grosh enthusiast and GP member, Ed. Ed, chime in here buddy. I know you've got something to share.

    Lots of beauties here -- lovethose setnecks. Would love to have a hollow setneck with P90s....

    Here's my Electratone -- I haven't played it a lot in the past three years or so since I've gotten more into archtops, but it's a great guitar. One of the earliest ones, and I replaced the original Armstrongs with Fralin P90s.

    Also, a Retro VT that I probably should have kept. It was a little heavier than I usually like, but it had the most perfect medium-large roundback birdseye neck. Sigh.
