Gordon Smith Graduate Slimline electric Guitar DC 10352

I don't know too much about this other than that it is a cracking guitar. It is nice and light and feels and sounds great. As you will see by the number on one of the photo's it is one of Gordon’s original models, handmade in the UK. A real player’s piece!
Someone in the past swapped one of the pups but I have it and will include it in the sale.
It has been well used (see edge damage in the last pic but that just adds to its coolness IMHO. Any trial welcome. Thanks for looking

I had one of these, lovely instruments and this is a tad underpriced, I sold mine for £400 over ten years ago.... They are priced at around £950 direct... Its worth checking out the age of yours to see if it was made by Smith himself....

This is a few years old so will be one of the Smith ones. A very nice instrument to handle and very light too. The factory moved only recently. Can anyone tell me how to date it from the number?

It's not a slimline buddy, slim lines have an f hole / semi acoustic.

Hmm I know that is true for amny other makes but I was told it was by the previous owner and just had a look at the Gordon Smith slimlines on line and none that I saw had an F hole. It is very lightweight

I had 2 of them and contacted GS for details of the build and I asked is it a thinline and that's the explanation he gve me, nothing to do with weight relief. Drop them a message on their FB page.

I used to have a '86 slimline, solid body, no F holes... As far as I recall, they made several models with thinner but solid bodies.

I think you’re confusing slimline with thinline which is the hollow with f hole thing.

Cool,

well I managed to sell a couple of things so if another guitar goes I'll probably be taking this down, at least for the time being. It's a really cool guitar to live with...that's Mojo I guess :)

My slimline Graduate didn't have F holes.
