April Gruhn Staff Picks

Though it goes without saying that the folks at Gruhn are fans of fretted instruments, it's always nice to shine a spotlight on some favorites that can quickly pass through the shop. Here are some great instruments which have recently piqued our interest.

EB6734, 1992 Gibson Les Paul Classic Plus
It's PURPLE! This is an early model that still has "model" on the peghead and doesn't have the funky green inlays like later versions. Great slim neck. Very loud unplugged! - Lloyd (Sales)

PA2798, 1966 Sears Silvertone 1484 Twin Twelve amplifier
One of my all time favorites. A timeless, warm and loud sound. Plus, the portability is an often overlooked feature. - William (Inventory/Photography)
