Gryphon ordered a batch of six custom instruments from Taylor in the Fall of 2018 and hand selected the wood for each instrument at the Taylor factory. This instrument was largely designed by the shop's own Erik Frykman, who's thinking was that the Lutz Spruce and Adirondack bracing combined with the Koa back and sides would create a balanced baritone guitar with ample projection. Regarding the result, he say, "Pow!"
