OK all you guitar experts here is one for you. What is known about the guitars built by Paul Graybeal from North Caroline. I own # 54. He has made around 90 since the mid 60's. I spoke with him about a year ago,but his age seemed to be cacthing up with him and apearently he kept no records. Mine is a cross betweem a D-35 and a smaller Gibson done in mahogony--3 piece back with brazilian or walnut center. He used great woods. When I show the local experts no one has heard of him,and the say its the worst looking hand made guitar they ever seen. I must agree,as he used bondo to fill in dime sized holes created by the bending of the sides. But every one agrees it sound FANTASTIC. So loud one lady at my work who was a distance away behind a wall thought it was an electric. My main repair man said he aint heard a guitar this nice in years and it reminded him of a very vintage Gibson sound. DOES ANYONE OUT THERE OWN ONE OF THESE GRAYBEALS? What is your opinion? What can you share about these or the builder. I cant play mine at home when my wife is around because it is so LOUD--I would guess at least 50% louder than my Gibson AJ, which everyone describes as powerful, thanks RSVP
