Meet our New Guy, Scott Wackerman

You'll find Scott Wackerman manning the front counter. He is a refugee from the tech world with several patents to his name. Scott grew up in a musical family and played guitar in a big band in college so working at Gryphon is a return to his musical roots. He has a love for fine archtop guitars and he is very knowledgeable about electric guitars, both solidbody and semi-solid, amps and acoustic steel strings. When he's not at Gryphon helping customers select the perfect instrument, he's at home working on his Wes Montgomery licks or trying to figure out how Vince Gill sounds so good.

Richard has an Article in Premier Guitar Magazine

On page 78 of the April issue of Premier Guitar Magazine Richard has an article on the new breed of specialist guitar collectors. You can see it in the magazine or read it online on the Premier Guitar Magazine Web Site
