Description

Update: Reply from Chris Rudd, General Manager at Gremlin Music, indicates that they have no actual records of previous models, but includes the following quote....."I remember the model.......I know it would have been Solid spruce carved top and solid maple body (maybe carved)."....The current Ashbury Carved Spruce tp/solid Maple back & sides F-style model is the AM-420, with an RRP of £699.
