We came across this super rare Grammer Guitar Johnny Cash model, in all original condition. Made in Nashville in the late 60s with fewer than 100 produced, this is a real find and a piece of country music history.

The guitar is quite clean overall, and look at the figure on the back!

Frets show light use.  The bridge has a hariline crack.  There are no repairs and everything is original.  It plays well and is a looker for sure.   

Non original hard case included.

This is what Joe Bonamassa has to say about this rare model that he also owns!

"1969 Grammer Johnny Cash model. This is the rarest guitar I own. I bought this guitar from Rumbleseat Music before (store owner) Eliot had the opportunity to even see it. There were only about 100 made in total. This guitar played a prominent role on the “Driving Towards the Daylight” CD and the “An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House” DVD (where you can see it in all of its glory). Anyone that plays the guitar says they want to buy it but it’s NOT for sale… Ever!!" - Joe Bonamassa
