This model and its non-cutaway cousin represent one of Gryphon's best-selling 12-strings of the last twenty years, and its easy to see why when you play this one. The big body delivers plenty of bass response to balance all those treble strings, while the mahogany gives you its characteristic clarity. The CE versions like this one allow access to the upper frets and a very believable amplified tone when you plug in. This one has only minor wear to the finish but very little fret wear. It's fresh from a set-up by Gryphon's Repair Dept. and so plays as easily as any new Taylor 12-string. Original throughout, with original hardshell case as shown.
