Description

This Avante Gryphon by Veillette in Sitka Spruce and Mahogany is one of the most fun and inspiring guitars we have played! You can play any song that you know on a standard guitar and play it on the Gryphon for a wonderful mandolin effect. Playing one of these Gryphons is an almost meditative experience, with the drones of the strings making the sound full and chorus like. These little six course guitars are expertly built and play as easy as a dream right out of the box. The neck attachment is left to one bolt, so adjustments are a breeze. They are favorites of many headlining artists around the world and it's easy to see why: with a unique and intriguing aesthetic, incredibly versatile tonal range and a perfectly palatable price point, the Avante Gryphon is a strong contender for that next instrument you've been thinking of...

One word: FUN! I love these little babies. The playability is great, they store easily and can go anywhere, and they play like a guitar but with a full Mandola sound. I'm hooked and can't wait to play one whenever I walk by. Give one a try - you'll be wondering what you've been doing without one this whole time!
 
A great instrument for those looking to play a mandolin without having to learn any new chords. It sounds great strummed or even on single line pieces. And if you feel like playing in standard with your friends, all it takes is a capo on the second fret and you're ready to go. I just might have to get one of these.
