Grimshaw Guitars

My wife found this link to me playing which was from Eric Sandifords website devoted to Grimshaw Guitars.   I own a Troubador  6 string which dates from the mid sixties.  I got this guitar about 10 years ago from Andy's Guitar shop on Denmark street.   It is unusual in that it has a D-Hole like a Maccaferri but with a flat-top bridge.   Without the Stimer the guitar has a very mellow sound very similar to Chriss Campions favino but it does not have the volume and is a quiet guitar.

Great to see me on the page with Pete Townsend Gene Vincent, Joe Brown, Billy Fury and Bert Weedon.
