Thread Name: 'The Grammer Guitar'
Subject: RE: 'The Grammer Guitar'
I know a couple of local people that have Grammers. Country singer Hank Locklin (of "Please Help Me, I'm Falling" fame) lives just up the road and he and Billy Grammer were good friends when both were in Nashville. He has several Grammers and is prone to selling or even giving them away to special friends. He gave a Brazilian rosewood D with a bearclaw top to my friend Ferlin who used to be his pedal steel player. It is an outstanding sounding guitar. But, as CraigS said, the finish is somewhat checked and a big chunk of the headstock is broken off.
