Description

Call for best price! Over the years Joe Veillette has worked for a long list of star clients which include the likes of Dave Matthews, Jorma Kaukonen, David Lindley, Kaki King, Ani DiFranco and many others. Often his work included designing unique instruments to fit the needs of pro musicians. His newest design is this, the Gryphon High Tuned 12 string guitar. In short the Gryphon is a 18.5" scale 12 string guitar tuned up to high D, just below the octave of normal guitar tuning. This gives the Gryphon a mandolin-like sound, though much more colorful and musical, yet it can be played like a regular guitar. Our first reaction was utter amazement at the lush tone and we can see this being extremely useful in many settings from stage to recording. This beauty is Mahogany/Spruce with the 18v DTAR Timberline Pickup and hardshell case.

I love the Gryphon in this wood combination of Mahogany/Sitka. It has all the power and wonderful chime that makes the Veillette Gryphon so enchanting. Just imagine having a big, warm, mandolin sort of sound but playing all the guitar music you already know. It's a blast and will add to your musical arsenal without any learning curve. Add some fun to your music!
 
I've played a lot of these little gems and I never get tired of them. It's such a beautiful sound and texture and a welcome addition to any guitarist's collection, especially if they do recording and overdubbing.
