Description

From the Veillette website: "Though it's the smallest acoustic we make (and one of the smallest we've seen), the Acoustic Gryphon High Tuned 12 String is no toy. Tuned with mandolin-style unison courses, the Acoustic Gryphon's celestial, sparkling highs and punchy mid-register give it unique cut and punch, and an unusually wide range of applications. Guitarists will love being able to play mandolin-style parts in a new high register, and even mandolin players will find new horizons, like the ability to play guitar-like or fingerstyle patterns in a mandolin tonality."

A mahogany back and sides and Sitka Spruce top with unique soundhole placement and shortened scale make for one cool (and fun!) guitar.

We all feel the Veillette Gryphon is one of the coolest guitar designs in years. Playable by any guitarist you immediately get a fresh sound that is like a huge, warmer, mandolin voice. It's a perfect way to add a new color to a band and give your audiences some new ear candy. Plus they are easy to travel with, even on a plane.
 
This is one of the best sounding Gryphons I've played and I've played a lot of them. The setup is perfect and the tone is awesome. One of these should be in every guitar player's collection. The texture is one that can only be achieved with this instrument.
