The Grosh ElectraJet model has several different variants, including the ElectraJet VT. This modern classic guitar takes the original ElectraJet model and tweaks it just a bit, giving it a thicker sound and giving it a telecaster type configuration. This gives it a lot of fat and thickness, but it can still chime and twang like an ElectraJet. The biggest change that creates this tone is the change in the body’s shape. The lower horn is extended, creating a beefed up telecaster that has a lot of versatility.
The ElectraJet VT’s body is made from Southern swamp ash that is fairly lightweight. The neck is made from one piece of clear maple doing in a medium large roundback style. It has a ten inch radius and features German Jesca 6150 medium fretwire. It uses Gotoh Vintage T style brass saddles and has a chrome cover neck with an exposed bubbin bridge. The bridge pickup is a Don Grosh Hand-wound EJVT, while the neck is a Standard T pickup. The guitar has a four way selector switch—bridge, neck, bridge and neck in parallel, and bridge and neck in series.
The ElectraJet VT is very nicely balanced and ergonomically balanced. It’s versatile enough to play everything from jazz and blues to country to rock. You’ll get a lot of out this guitar. It comes in a number of different colors and retails for $2,689. Read more

The Grosh Custom Carve Top is a part of Grosh Guitars’ bolt-on maple top guitars line. These guitars feature mahogany bodies with a maple neck bolted on. Each one blends these two woods to create a great sound that captures both great lows and mids as well as rich highs. Each has a nice balanced body and is covered in an ultra-thin nitro cellulose lacquer finish. They also have fingerboard and fret dressing that gives them that great vintage, relic guitar look that players love.
The Custom Carve Top Relic Guitar comes in either T or S shape. The fingered maple is a bit thicker than other Grosh guitars such as the Bent Top and the Flat Top. This gives the maple a more pronounced influence on the guitar’s tone. The wood is also carved in a continuous radius, giving it a curvy look that you just can’t beat.
The Grosh Custom Carve Top features the exclusive Grosh Modified Gotoh 1088 T Tremolo, the Tone Pro Tune-o-matic, a vintage flat mount hardtail, and either a Floyd Rose locking tremolo or a wrap around pigtail. Overall, it’s a great guitar for hard rock or metal. Read more
The Grosh Guitars TurboJet model is visually based on the ElectraJet, but while the TurboJet and ElectraJet may share some of the same lines and body shape, the TurboJet is all rock. It features a mahogany body and uses either a flame maple or a 5A quilt top. This helps the guitar deliver those amazingly thick, complex, and rich tones that it is known for. Every TurboJet body is made from master grade old growth mahogany, and each is genuine. The tops are made from AAAAA figured wood as well, and this combination creates firm lows and harmonically rich highs. The body’s shape also helps create tighter lows and puts more of a punch in the mids. This creates an openness that is simply unmatched by any other guitar with a mahogany/maple combination.
When this body combination is enhanced by the new Grosh humbucking pickups, the TubroJet becomes one very rocking guitar. The TurboJet also features a five way switch, which means that a player can get just about any tone from the instrument. Its very innovative design mixed with the classic style that all Grosh guitars feature creates a guitar that is natural, balanced, and sounds great.
