Elliott Easton often visited Grayson's Music in Long Island, New York as a kid. He ordered his first custom left handed electric guitar from Mr. Grayson, who always treated Elliott with kindness. Years later, after Elliott's rock band, The Cars, had notoriety, he reunited with Mr. Grayson at a NAMM Show in Chicago. It was a special moment for both of them. In addition to his highly successful musical career, Elliott has been a regular at the NAMM Shows since 1979 and has formed lifelong friendships with manufacturers and retailers alike.
