Gordon Smith Grande electric guitar - full size and two bodies

The Gordon Smith Grande

New from Gordon Smith – the Grande electric     

Great to see the company doing well and bringing out an exciting new design – the Grande.

Created fully in-house by their award winning designer Elliot Heggie, the Grandé follows the Gordon Smith design philosophy of smaller bodied, lightweight guitars and is packed full of high end features to deliver a hugely versatile, head turning instrument at around 7lbs in weight.

This what they say about it:

With contoured front and back, double binding and refined fingerboard inlays, the Grande owes more than a nod to the GS Gemini of old – but the full feature list goes beyond any stock GS to date.

The limited launch edition Grandé is available for pre order for May 2024 delivery (limited stock available for immediate despatch) in four metallic colour ways – Merlot (cream binding and X Gold hardware), Twilight (White binding and bright chrome hardware), Sovereign (Iveroid / MOP with X chrome hardware) and Juniper (Tortoiseshell binding with bright gold hardware).
