Overview

As the most popular acoustic model created by Veillette Guitars, the Gryphon has inspired and intrigued players all over the world, and been seen and heard on some of the biggest stages and best studios in the industry.

Celestial, sparkling highs and punchy mid-register give the Gryphon unique cut and punch, and an unusually wide range of applications. Guitarists will love being able to play mandolin-style parts in a new high register, and even mandolin players will discover new horizons, including the ability to play guitar-like or fingerstyle patterns in a mandolin tonality and range.

The Gryphon is designed for D tuning (equivalent to the 10th fret of a standard guitar). This unique range is made possible by its short scale length (18.5") and custom strings (gauges .009" to .042”). The unison courses of the 12-string Gryphon produce a rich, natural chorus and depth that brings to mind mandolins, bouzoukis, quatros, and other traditional folk instruments — along with a powerful rhythm "chop.” 

In the studio or on stage, the Gryphon sounds great both acoustically or amplified with its piezo pickup and active preamp, with onboard volume and tone controls.
