Are Your Appraisals Up-to-Date?

Each year we do more and more appraisals. Whether for insurance purposes, estate planning, or just plain curiosity, Gryphon's own Richard Johnston can help you ascertain the current value of your instrument. To learn more about having your instrument(s) appraised and to check out a few of Richard's appearances on PBS's Antiques Roadshow, click here.

Allison Guitars, a True Texas Original

While it can oftentimes seem as though there are as many instrument makers as players out there, some builders are able to really cut through the mix. We believe that John Allison is one such builder. Read more about why we are so pleased to have Allison Guitars in our shop by clicking here.

For the banjo player who went to a Pete Seeger concert in the early '60s, or went to see the Kingston Trio, this banjo was as close as they could get to the banjo they had seen onstage.
