Two very different 4-string guitars

Shown here is our first tenor guitar from Collings, a model they just introduced a couple of months ago. It's Collings' version of the most popular American tenor guitar of all time, the Martin 0-18T. Along with the typical Collings "fit and finish" it has oodles of volume, a sweet, snappy tone, and a lot more bass response than you usually get in a tenor guitar. So what is it about tenor guitars, you ask? A lot more than you might think.

D.I.Y. Guitar from the 1930s

We've listed this as a "Folk Art Guitar" because we really don't know what to call it. It's obviously handmade, and the original source said it was "made by my grandfather about 80 or 90 years ago." The 1930s sounds about right to us, because it has 14 frets clear of the body, and the Great Depression was a prime era for musical instruments made out of whatever material was at hand.

The Gryphon Advantage

One of the things that makes Gryphon special is something, or someplace, most people never see: our repair department. Before we put an instrument out for sale, we set it up for optimum playability. We guarantee that you will have an instrument that will play correctly. If we can't adjust it, we will not sell it. Our six full time technicians stand behind that guarantee. They can also repair and modify your instrument in the future. If you purchased it here, you will get a 25% discount on labor.
