    Gryphon #786, AAA Pommele / Bearclaw / Ebony!!!Added within the last 30 days

Here's a Gryphon that really reaches out and grabs you - this one is decked out with lots of options, which all add up into a particularly classy package.

The back and sides are gorgeous Pommele Sapele, with iridescent, 3-D quilt figure and a gorgeous natural luminescence. This wood is one of our favorites - warm, well-balanced tone and truly exceptional figure.

To complement the figured back and sides, this Gryphon has an upgraded "bearclaw" Sitka spruce top with uncommonly uniform and intense figuring - the pictures don't even begin to do it justice!

The black ebony fingerboard and bridge perfectly match the black binding and headplate, and the effect is completed by a matching black saddle to keep a "stealth" look.

The onboard pickup/preamp also has some extra custom goodness - the built-in TriColor onboard tuner, which we no longer offer. This very low-profile system displays flat, sharp, or in-tune all on one LED, and even has a control for brightness.

A Gryphon with all these options together would be well over $5k these days. This instrument is very clean with minimal play wear, available immediately for $3200.

    Acoustic Bass 4-string #596Added within the last 30 days

This lovely bass is the prototype for our Acoustic Bass model, built in June 2009.

It features our standard combination of mahogany back/sides/neck with Pau Ferro fingerboard and bridge, and a Sitka Spruce top.

The non-cutaway body maximizes internal air volume for the biggest possible acoustic response and tone, for unplugged jamming or recording with a microphone. The natural acoustic tone of this bass is full-range and clear with a strong, well-integrated attack and even tone and volume across the full range.

Plugged in, the bass has a gigantic, earthy voice that ranges from 'upright' warmth and bloom to crisp, precise, and clear, almost like a giant "D-style" guitar.

Here's a quick video clip of this bass in action:



This bass is very clean - it has been to a couple of shows as a 'demo model', but is essentially like new. Available now, without the usual 4 month wait, for $4300, including hardshell case.

    Journeyman Nylon - AAA flame top, gorgeous!Added within the last 30 days

This is a beautiful example of our most current Journeyman Nylon design. With the glued on "tie-block" bridge and flat top, this guitar blends traditional design elements with modern features and playability.

The neck has a 20" radius fingerboard and 1 7/8" nut, which make it friendly and comfortable for the steel-string or electric guitarist, while still allowing room for expressive vibrato techniques and precise left-hand fingering.

The body is heavily chambered mahogany, and the end result is an exceptionally lightweight and lively guitar with an almost 'acoustic' feel - final weight is 5.2 lbs, comparable to many acoustic instruments!

The black-bound AAA flame top is striking under the tobacco sunburst finish, and stands out onstage with subtle class and sophistication.

Volume and Tone controls give this guitar a wide variety of plugged-in tones, and the full-range piezo system is extremely responsive to the colors and shadings of the player's touch and technique - just like a fine classical instrument.

Here's a quick clip to demonstrate this guitar:

A natural choice for stage playing, as well as jazz and bossa nova, this guitar delivers an authentic nylon-string sound and experience in a slim, rugged, and feedback-resistant package.

Available now for $3800, including Veillette gig bag.

    #930 Journeyman Gryphon 12 - Gorgeous quilted top!

This is a lovely example of our most recent generation of solidbody 'acoustic'-electric instruments, in our ever-popular Gryphon 12 tuning.

The lightweight and resonant poplar body is capped with a lovely quilted maple top, finished in translucent red burst.

The wenge fingerboard, bridge, and tailpiece contribute an organic, acoustic-like tonal contour, faithfully amplified by the full-range piezo system and 18v active preamp.

Naturally feedback resistant, road-ready, and comfortable, this is the perfect instrument for the touring and performing guitarist looking to expand into the higher ranges and textures.

Available now, including custom-made gig bag, for $3475. #930

    #938 Flyer 14" Standard 6, Pau Ferro body!

This lovely Flyer 14" was a NAMM 2014 showpiece.

The back and sides are made from a special set of Pau Ferro, which has long been our go-to material for bridges and fingerboards. Similar to rosewood in weight and texture, Pau Ferro (aka Morado) has more brightness and 'snap' than the typical rosewood. This set is perfectly quartered and very fine-grained, with great color and character and a vibrant, responsive tone.

The ebony fingerboard, bridge, and tailpiece complement the tone perfectly, and lend this Flyer a slightly more 'classic' tone than our usual mahogany instruments - slightly scooped mids, and clear, crisp treble with shades of "O"-style guitars, alongside the vocal-like midrange and quick attack of our Flyer design.

Available immediately, including customized hardshell case. $4645
