Avante by Veillette Gryphon 12-String (Recent)
The Gryphon 12-string mini guitar has six unison courses tuned nearly an octave higher than a standard guitar (D-G-C-F-A-D). It’s built with a solid spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. The result is an intriguing instrument that combines the richness of a 12-string guitar and the shimmer of a mandolin. This guitar needs work (sold AS-IS, see Details section below), but overall is in very good condition. More Details...
