There are huge reasons why there are so many glowing reviews on this store. Having known the owners since they started out many years ago, I've bought several instruments there, used the repair shop several times, and received the best advice consistently for more than 40 years. I have been totally happy with all products and services. As a muso, you are with family here and will be treated accordingly. Gryphon sets the highest standard for acoustic shops, repairs and luthery, and I'm so grateful. What I've managed to achieve in my playing is substantially due to having Gryphon backing me up. Also I should mention that I'd now be a lot richer if I had followed all their purchase advice through the years.

I've had dealings with Gryphon String Instruments for over thirty years. I've bought three banjos and an octave mandolin there, and they have done a few repairs for me at very reasonable cost. There is very little turnover in their staff, which is knowledgeable and friendly. Gryphon has several affiliated music teachers who give private lessons and classes on site, and they occasionally bring in special guests for workshops. I give this shop my highest recommendation.

They do have a small selection of electric but what they are known for is acoustic guitars. A great repair shop and first rate teachers housed in the back of the store.

Gryphon is a guitarist's heaven, with a wide selection of instruments and a very low-key, knowledgeable staff to provide just the right amount of help and advice.

I had a bass guitar re-strung and adjusted here. Price was reasonable and the quality of the work was very good. Turn-around time was a week due to a high volume, probably because other music stores in the area don't offer comparable services. Highly recommended.

Fixed my martin for about $60, it was old, so it needed some work at the bridge, truss rod, some other stuff as well. They are authorized by Martin, and I woudln't trust anyone not authorized. Friendly, pretty quick, and they also have a huge selection of Martins, they seem very Martin centric, check it out if that's you're thing.

PROS: Did an excellent job
CONS: none

This is a really good shop for lovers of acoustic music of all kinds. Great selection of instruments, books, other music essentials. Great community asset. Good instrument repair, friendly people, good advice. A lot of stuff you just can't find anywhere else. Now if they would only carry Gallagher guitars!
