Grez Guitars are hand built in California one at a time by Luthier Barry Grzebik. The Mendocino is a breath of fresh air in the world of handm made Electric Guitars. Grez Guitars are a unique blend of high quality, old world craftsmanship and forward thinking design. The idea behind the Mendocino was to build a super light weight (in this case 5lbs 3oz) and compact highly chambered Semi-Hollow body guitar, that sounds like a mix between a full-size Semi-Hollow guitar and an Archtop.
This particular extremely customized and classy example, features a piece of figured Quilt Old-Growth Redwood, tortoise binding and white purfling. The finish is a gorgeous Tobacco burst, that lets you see the wood in all its natural glory, while adding a bit of a smoky look to the top. Nothing sounds quite like the mellow yet ultra lively shimmer, you get from old-growth Redwood. Especially wood like this, that has had 100's of years to dry. This guitar is very loud acoustically, with tone that is more than satisfying. When plugged in the mix of the Lollar Low Wind Imperial Humbuckers and the highly acoustic Redwood body, meld together in a beautiful, airy, dreamy way. These guitars evenly cover all playing styles with ease. From fingerpicking Country to Jazz, Western Swing, Rock and more. This Mendocino has a beautiful Macassar Ebony fingerboard with a 12" radius. It is a true joy to play. The Lollar Low-Wind Imperials in this guitar sound incredible with a 3D-like clean tone, yet they also take gain extremely well, with overtones and harmonics that’s just leap off the fret board. A very high-quality, Luthier built guitar at a wonderful price-point, that you will enjoy for a lifetime. Easy playability and a perfectly dialed in, setup. There are lots of beautiful details on this one, so look at the pictures closely.
