Celestial, sparkling highs and punchy mid-register allow the Avante Gryphon® to shine in a wide range of applications. Guitarists can immediately play mandolin-style parts in a new high register without learning a new tuning. As a songwriting tool, for doubling or layering in studio, and even as a compact traveling companion, the Avante Gryphon is guaranteed to inspire.

The Avante Gryphon® also excels as a guitarist-friendly alternative to traditional folk instruments like the bouzouki, mandocello, and Cuban tres and cuatro.

With eye-catching small size and clean modern design, the Avante Gryphon® stands apart from the crowded market of typical 6-strings, and offers a new and exciting alternative for any player looking to expand their range and versatility beyond the boundaries of their favorite guitar.

Handcrafted under exclusive license to Veillette's exacting standards, the Avante Gryphon® features:

  • Solid Spruce Top
  • Solid Mahogany Back and Sides
  • Mahogany Neck
  • Rosewood Fingerboard and Bridge
  • Piezo transducer and active preamp
  • 18.5" Scale
