Gryphon Stringed Instruments' 45th Anniversary Celebration

We're turning 45! Come help us celebrate on Saturday, Oct. 25. For complete details, a performance schedule, and some cool pictures from the Gryphon archives, click here.

Taylor Prototype Guitars at Gryphon

We were very pleased when Derek got a phone call from our Taylor rep, Billy Gill, where he offered us a quartet of unique and appealing prototype guitars. We just took delivery of two GS Minis and two Grand Auditorium guitars.

Some Instrument Demo Videos from the Next Generation

With Gryphon's 45th Anniversary coming up in just a few weeks we aren't exactly looking for more ways to feel ancient, but a musical reminder of the passage of time is certainly more pleasant that tweaking your neck trying to avoid catching your reflection in the mirror. Molly Tuttle, daughter of Gryphon's long-time fiddle, mandolin, and banjo instructor Jack Tuttle, stopped by Gryphon last week and recorded some videos for us to demo instrument models we try to keep in stock at all times. Of course we remember when Molly was a shy little kid, but now she's winding up a stint at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and has a wide-ranging music career ahead of her. You can watch Molly perform both traditional tunes and a couple of her own compositions here.
