JUNE 13, 2019, PETALUMA, California –
GREZ GUITARS announces the release of their first production solid body guitar, The Folsom. Barry Grzebik, Luthier and owner of GREZ GUITARS, will be showcasing “The Folsom” at Summer NAMM in Nashville, booth 1620 in July 18-20. Guitars will be available for sale July 1st, 2019.
“Following our successful entry into the production Mendocino and Mendocino Baritone, I really wanted to create something slightly more mainstream yet still distinctly a Grez,” remarks Barry Grzebik.
Designed to be a familiar yet distinctive statement both visually and sonically. Build around a Tele bridge pickup and Firebird neck pickup, The Folsom creates classic work-horse tones with the feel of a handmade played-in instrument.
The guitar is available in several color and hardware options including a string thru Tele bridge, a Mastery bridge with a Bigsby or a Mastery and the Grez stainless steel trapeze tailpiece. At just under 7lbs The Folsom has a stout feel without being unnecessarily heavy. Customized versions can be produced with delivery times as little as 30 days.
Street Price: $2,480 to $2,780 depending on configuration.
