probably borrowed the Grimshaw from a friend.
This Grimshaw is a "SS De-Luxe" so called because
of its shortscale. It was hand made by Emile Grimshaw and Son
had its own unique style of tremolo/vibrato arm and were normally
made to order. All the switch was on a plate in the lower bout
and the pickup selection was by a rotary knob. Grimshaw guitars
were considered to be the nearest to Gibson at the time as Gibson
weren't easy to get hold of. The guitars were well constructed,
and it was large bodied D-ho;e eleracoustic well ahead of its
to Tony Allen for the information, who also owned a Grimshaw,

Meehan, Hank Marvin and Bruce with his Grimshaw.
