Gruggett Raindrop guitar from 1966
This Gruggett Raindrop was apparently one of only six such guitars and was built in 1966 for a band called - appropriately enough - The Raindrops.

Bill Gruggett, the maker of this guitar, also built guitars for Mosrite and Hallmark Guitars back in the day, and is currently working with the re-launched Hallmark company.

The Raindrop guitar reminds me of a more modern guitar, possibly 80s-era, but I can't quite put my finger on what it might be.

I wonder what happened to the band The Raindrops too, incidentally.

  1. What it reminds you of - Tokai Talbo? (If you cut off the [recessed] lower horn, then you would have something very similar to the Raindrop.) I wouldn't like one falling on my head, though!!
