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 Michael Simmons who envisioned a hybrid of the torrified tops available on the 600 series and the robustness of the rosewood on the 700s.
