Default Reduced $4700 - Griggs G-28, Alpine Moon Spruce/ Southeast Asian Rosewood..

This is a very rare occasion, A Griggs G28 Bone for sale. Jamie Griggs says this is the only Griggs guitar to ever be put up for re-sale.. Here’s what he had to say when I purchased it from him..



“I rarely ever have a Griggs guitar up for sale but behold a used G-28 Bone with Master Grade Italian Moon Spruce top, Split Cut Adirondack braces and South East Asian Rosewood which is my favorite rosewood along with Brazilian. 1 3/4” neck 30s spacing. Its been my personal guitar for a while.”



All Master Grade AAAA woods

Master Grade Italian Moon Spruce

Master Grade South East Asian Rosewood Back and Sides

Split Cut Straight Grain Adirondack Braces

Mahogany Neck (with truss rod)

Hot Hide Glue throughout

Ebony Fretboard and Bridge

Waverly Tuners

Diamond Volute

K&K pickup



All woods are formed, shaped and sized by hand: cut, split, chiseled... No sandpaper is used in shaping, sizing,... Sanding to shape compresses fibers and dampens tone.



Styling is based on ‘34 D-28 (as is the entire guitar other than the wood species)

The only difference in the bracing, from a ‘34, is he adds a tongue brace, which is radiused. The entire top is radiused.



Jamie kept this G-28 as his showpiece guitar and lent it to pros to test drive on the road.. Most of whom ordered guitars from him. Larry Keel, Ronnie Bowman, Clay Jones, gigged with this guitar and ordered Griggs. Woody Platt, Chris Stapleton and Jon Stickley all have Griggs too... The guitar does show play wear and the start of some finish checking. Things which, IMHO, help enhance tone..



This guitar would be upwards of $11,000 if ordered with an estimated 3 year wait..

Price reduced.
$4700, plus shipping..

Open to some trades..

This isn’t your average Pre War style Dread. This thing has the cleanest clearest bass I’ve ever heard. Mostly due to this very rare Southeast Asian Rosewood....

I’ve had some questions about Southeast Asian rosewood.

Southeast Asian rosewood is an endangered species. This wood is no longer harvested for guitar manufacture, and is therefore extremely hard to find from legitimate sources.
Southeast Asian rosewood has the exotic colors that make Brazilian rosewood so highly sought. It tends toward a reddish cast. Black grain lines offer contrast, but without the unique branching typically seen in rio, as the Brazilian species is also known.
Furthermore, Southeast Asian rosewood is often regarded as being remarkably similar to rio in sound. When played, it rings out loud and strong. But this wood is no mere copycat—it has a unique sparkle of its own, sounding particularly lively toward the high end while still displaying character in the bass notes.
