POST # 600 EBAY PRICE GUIDE : DON GROSH SET NECK BRAZILIAN QUILT CUSTOM GUITAR
Gorgeous maple top on this hand built guitar with Brazilian Rosewood Fingerboard to boot.
Scroll down to see how much it sold for. Here's the blurb from the seller.
GORGOUS DON GROSH HAND-BUILD SET NECK
EARLY MODEL, AMAZING QUILT TOP
If you are familiar with Don Grosh's custom builds then you know what you are about to see described. If not, then you don't know what you've been missing.
An amazingly talented luthier, this is a custom hand-built guitar that will put any Les Paul (original or clone) to shame. The guitar plays better than it looks, and that is saying something. Quilted maple top, with a rare Brazilian Rosewood Fingerboard. Ebony headstock veneer.
Incredible tone, worthy of the Don Grosh name. This guitar was built with an attention to detail that cannot be described. Incredible note articulation and sustain. Everything you ever wanted in a Don Grosh Set-neck which is one of the rarest and most expensive models he builds. The owner of this guitar will have difficulty putting it down!
The pictures tell the story. Excellent condition, with some minor surface rash in the back wood that cn be buffed out, and is too fine to show up in close up Macro photographs. I tried. When was the last time you saw a Grosh Set Neck with a Brazilian fretboard for less than $4,000? Well, here is your chance to get one....there is never going to be another made like it by Don for a comparable price...that's for sure.
Will be shipped as shown with its original case. No COA, but I will include the full spec sheet that was emailed to me by Don (pictured). Free shipping in CON-USA, international buyers welcome, but please be aware that shipping will be at cost, using Fed Ex international economy. Use the international price in description below as a guide only...exact price will be passed along.
Check my feedback, and buy with confidence. Fully guaranteed to be received as described, and full refund (return shipping at buyer's expense) if the guitar is not 100% as described

I JUST DID A TOTAL THOROUGH INSPECTION OF THE GUITAR FROM TOP TO BOTTOM. I PROBABLY OVERSTATED THE DEGREE OF RASH ON THE BACK WOOD. HOWEVER, THERE IS A TINY, NEARLY IMPERCEPTIBLE INDENTATION ON THE LOWER EDGE OF THE GUITAR...POSSIBLY A SURFACE IMPRESSION IN THE WOOD THAT WAS THERE WHEN IT CAME FROM THE FACTORY. IT WILL NOT PHOTOGRAPH! I TRIED. SINCE I ADVERTISE MY GUITARS AS 100% RETURNS IF NOT ACCURATELY DESCRIBED, I WANTED TO ADD THIS "BLEMISH" WHICH MOST PEOPLE WOULD NEVER SEE, BUT WHICH (IN MY OPINION) IS THE ONLY REAL FACTOR THAT KEEPS IT FROM BEING LISTED AS MINT. IT'S NOT A BIG ISSUE AT ALL...I JUST BELIEVE IN 100% DISCLOSURE. I HAVE SEEN GUITARS COME FROM THE FACTORY WITH MANY MORE MARKS THAN THIS, BUT I WANT THE BUYER TO BE TOTALLY SATISFIED WITH THEIR PURCHASE. DID I SAY THIS GUITAR PLAYS OUTSTANDING, WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER???
