Grant was a house brand of James Grant Music (Jimmy's) -  a chain of Scottish music shops in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen from the mid 1960s to the mid 1980s. Jimmy Grant imported various instruments from Japan - for example electric guitars were made by Chushin Gakki, FujiGen, Dyna Gakki and possibly Terada. These were sold in Jimmy's shops under the Grant brand name - but also distributed to other UK music shops. The guitars and basses were typically Gibson and Fender copies. There were also Grant branded effects and banjos. The Grant brand was discontinued when Jimmy Grant sold his music shops and emigrated to Spain in the early 1980s
