When I first asked Grit Laskin about the possibility of a guitar with the Green Man inlaid on the headstock, I was playing a Guild D-70 (the only one I ever owned). Grit said, "I can make you a guitar with your logo on it, but I doubt that I could make a guitar that sounds any better than the one you're playing." High praise for a factory instrument from a guitar genius. Sold that Guild to a local farmer who played it while singing with his church's folk trio. Wish I still had it. Being broke so often really bites! Makes you do things you later regret.
