About This Listing

GRIMES GUITARS LC MODEL

I ordered this guitar in 2006 and received it in 2009.   This guitar has a German Spruce top and spectacularly beautiful Brazilian Rosewood Sides and Back. The detail of the Rosewood is incredible (I paid a $4000 premium for the "highly figured" sides and back set). Steve doesn’t ever offer Brazilian Rosewood on new builds. It has an Ebony Fingerboard and Bridge and has beautiful Koa purfling on the sides of the body and neck.

This guitar has been kept in a humidity controlled environment at 45% humidity since I received it and it has never left my house. It has a few tiny marks on it that are too small to photograph. No chips or dents.  It has been played very little.  No fret ware.

The LC model was developed in collaboration with the great jazz guitarist Larry Coryell. He needed a flat top guitar that had a strong, clear midrange and high end response, without boominess in the bass. Furthermore, it had to have a loud, full acoustic tone, but still be capable of amplification with a piezoelectric pickup with better feedback control. Larry wanted to be able to perform on stage in a group with the guitar, and also be able to record with it in the studio. By using a combination of “X” and parallel bracing, as well as an elliptical soundhole, the LC enhances the power of the mid and upper ranges of the tonal spectrum.
