Description

A quality 0000 comes up for sale but so often, and one from John Greven even less so. This aged beauty comes to us all the way from 1980, and it’s got the mojo working with finish crazing, whip-crack bass, and a chunky C neck that verges on the softest V you’ll ever lay hands on.


The wood game is on point: brick-red Brazilian Rosewood and 1000 thread count tight-grain Adirondack Spruce on top. Rosewood peghead overlay, Rosewood bridge, and an L.R. Baggs Lyric pickup is the cherry on top (well, bridge plate to be exact). The Lyric is a lively fellow with a volume knob adhered under the soundhole, and captures the acoustic tone of the top while simultaneously canceling out the “boxy” tones other in-guitar mics suffer from.


The 0000 has some serious hips but slender sides, marrying projection with clarity. This Greven 0000 gives you all that in a sweetly opened-up package.


Alternative spellings: grevan, graven, oooo

A big, wide top and nearly 40 years of pickin’ combine here to give you lots of power in this vintage Greven. The proven combination of Brazilian and Adirondack adds to the goodness. This one is a versatile beast as well, capable of blues, rock, celtic with fingers or picks. Does it all!
