I had never owned or played a Grosh guitar prior to the arrival of this ElectraJet, but when the opportunity arose to pick this one up it was easy to find plenty of glowing endorsements out there in the interwebz, so I grabbed it. What a great guitar! It feels and looks like a sleeper to me,
The fit an finish of this guitar are impeccable. The neck fits the pocket like a glove, and the fat rosewood slab fretboard is delicious. The medium jumbo frets show little wear. The neck and body finish is beautifully done and even the cavity shielding shows that care was taken during the application. The vintage tint on the neck brings out the light figuring. Each and every screw hole, for pickguard mounting etc, is evenly countersunk. The pickguard is a sumptuous and vintage accurate tortoise.
Electronics are all high quality - CTS pots, a US made (3-position) CRL switch and the Grosh P90s all work flawlessly. Wiring is neatly done and thoughtfully routed.
Tones vary from a fat, warm neck sound to growly and rich bridge, and the mid position has an awesome vocal character when both pickups are combined.
Even the case is sweet with a little extra awesome in the embossed "leather" end trim.
