About Gryphon Stringed Instruments

Gryphon specializes in high-quality acoustic and electric stringed instruments, and we take pride in our top-notch service staff, well-educated sales people, and a product line that caters to the discriminating musician, regardless of price range. We have been in business since 1969 under the same ownership. With the exception of amplifiers, we can repair anything we sell right here in our own service department.

» The Gryphon Staff
Everyone who works here has a love for fine instruments and a fascination with the world of music. You'll find our sales people honest, friendly, and opinionated. None of them are paid on commission, so there's never an incentive to sell you more than you need.

» The Founding Flounders
Who runs this place?? Well, in a manner of speaking, that would be the owners, Richard Johnston and Frank Ford. (Of course, they're the first to admit that they'd be lost without Nancy Thomas, Gryphon's office manager, human resources director, and all-around MVP Friday through Monday - but not in that order...

The Gryphon Advantage

posted Jul 07, 2014
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.
