Gryphon's Sale Instruments for August

Our blue "sale wall" in July was a great success and lots of fun. For August that same section of wall is now red, and different sale-priced instruments are featured but of course because of manufacturers' restrictions we can't even tell you what new instruments are on sale, let alone how they are now priced. But we can show you a photo... too bad it's difficult to determine what's pictured! These are great deals folks, and each instrument is new with full manufacturer's warranty and all the usual Gryphon service comes with it. Each one is well worth a phone call, especially if you like pleasant surprises!

Santa Cruz Guitars Finally Back in Stock
We're still not sure what happened, because a few years ago we had a good supply of new SCGC guitars in stock, then we had none and that drought continued far longer than it should have. It's a long story, but the short version is that we didn't order enough of 'em, the Santa Cruz crew had lots of orders and got behind, etc.

Now we've got some great choices in stock, including some unique guitars such as an OM/PW with a cedar top and short scale, for the ultimate playability and tonal warmth, and a delightfully petite "Firefly" model with beautiful amber shading on the top. For those who love their SCGC tone from larger vessels, there's a D with Adirondack top plus the latest 'Cruz model, the OM Grand, plus a deep-bodied H/13 with Adirondack top.
