Year: 1999
Make: Grosh
Model: Retro Classic
Price: $2500
Up for sale is a 1999 Grosh Retro Classic Guitar (Serial # 609) in “Mint” condition throughout. This is an exemplary example of Don’s craftsmanship, and, you won’t be disappointed.

If you are searching for a Vintage Style Strat-Style guitar that rivals Fender’s Custom Shop instruments, you owe it to yourself to explore Grosh Guitars. See enclosed review from Guitar Player Magazine in 1995.

Guitar Player Magazine
April 1995
By Art Thompson
Don Grosh may be a new name to some of you, but he's been kicking
up sawdust in the Southern California guitar-building scene for ten
years. Don's quality instruments have become popular with several big
name players including studio hotshots Randy Jacobs and Michael
Landau. The Retro Classic ($1,850; as tested with case, $2,140), a
vintage-Strat-style ax, features a lightweight, solid-alder body expertly
finished in dark green metallic catalyzed lacquer. Its straight-grained
maple neck has a 10"-radius rosewood fingerboard fitted with tall,
immaculately finished 6105 frets. Very hip Gotoh Kluson-style locking
tuners and a standard string tree complete the Headstock details. The
two-screw, Gotoh fulcrum-style bridge is modified with a nylon
bushing to help prevent trem arm slop. The Retro's welded truss rod is
accessible from the body end of the neck without removing the
pickguard- a welcome deviation from vintage specs.
The Retro has Lindy Fralin pickups in the neck and middle positions,
and a specially wound 7k ohm Fralin at the bridge. The neato control
scheme offers volume, tone, 5-position selector, and a blend knob in
the last tone position. This allows you to mix in the bridge pickup with
the neck pickup, or vice versa, depending on whether the pickup
selector is in the first or fifth position. Of course, you can also have all
three pickups on simultaneously in the second or fourth notches. A
very cool feature!
Acoustically, the Retro is one of the beefiest and most butterysounding
Strat-style axes we've ever heard. It really nails that aged
magic usually absent in new instruments. Plugged into any of our
amps, the Grosh yielded rich, complex, and incredible well-balanced
tones. The Fralins are bright and sweet, and the blend control is a
godsend for balancing the neck and bridge pickups. The Retro Classic
is a superior choice for players who crave creamy Eric Johnson tones
or for anyone who wants the sound and feel of an old Fender. This
guitar plays exceedingly well, and the smooth, precise trem gave us
no tuning headaches.
Don Grosh has really nailed the vintage formula, and the Retro earns
our highest rating. You can follow many trails searching for a fine
original or replica Strat, but it's doubtful you'll find anything that
sounds or plays better than the Grosh.
