The Gryphone? The Gryphette? The G-Minor?
March 19, 2010
Whatever we decide to call it, one thing is for sure:
This is our standard Gryphon body, with a shortened 16.5" scale that allows the open strings to be tuned a full octave higher than 'standard'.
This means all chord shapes and fret positions are the same note names as on a regular guitar - no capoing or transposing necessary!
Even beyond the special scale, this is a pretty special guitar all around, with:
The higher pitch and shorter scale give this guitar a beautiful and charming voice that's different from our ever-popular D-tuned Gryphon - it has a little extra 'lift' that just makes you smile. Our customer agrees!
Anyone with a name suggestion, please feel free to email and let us know!
