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.
