Gryphon Welcomes "Instruments of the Future"

While Google, Apple and Facebook grab most of the headlines in our neighborhood, we're more interested in how the folks at Blackbird Guitars up in San Francisco use technology to make really cool instruments.

Are You Looking for Consecutive Year 1950s Fender Stratocasters?

Looking for consecutive year 1950s Fender Stratocasters showing the transition from the 2-tone to 3-tone sunburst? Look no further, as we just got in a fine late '57 Strat and also an example from late '58. Except for the additional reddish band of color on the later one, these are quite similar and remarkably original. A slight combined pricing consideration will be made if you buy both!
