    It must be the painted headstock.

    I figure somebody would like that color but its been on ebay for a very long time. Sounds like they are asking too much or are just having trouble selling it for some reason.

    I don't find it ugly either. I prefer unpainted headstocks, and I'm not crazy about the color of that one. But it's a Grosh. It's no doubt a great playing guitar that probably sounds fantastic to boot.

    The price is just a tad high for what ones with really hard core birdseye & figured bodies go for used. That would be my guess why it might have sat on ebay for a long time. If he dropped it $100.-$150. it would probably go.

    Thanks guys. Actually, I sold the Burton to pay for... ah hell, I can't remember which guitar I bought with that money, but she was hot :D

    Te seafoam green in that picture is gone, too. The sherwood green in the background is getting new pickups - the Fender set up with the S1 switching... still wiring it - and the Evil Knievel one on the right is waiting for a set of nice humbuckers. It currently has GFS Hot Liverpools, but I don't dig those in that guitar. Not sure what I am going to put in there, either...

    Yeah, still can't remember why I did sell her... musta been some bills that needed some payin' :(

    It didn't sound enough like a Tele when I played it. But I will get another one some day. I loved the finish on it.

    I've seen that Grosh in person - and yeah, I did not find it appealing. Bought a BTC instead, and it's not any shade of pink.

    Grosh makes some really nice looking guitars. To me, that's not one of them.
