Ordering A Griffin Guitar

Griffin guitars are custom made. A place in the next available batch of 6-8 guitars can be secured by a deposit of 50% of the agreed price, or 1/3 of the price of any instrument priced $3000 and up.

To determine the cost of your Griffin guitar, choose one of the four basic models, one of the two standard wood options, and options and appointments from the table below. For more information about the basic models and wood options, see the Guitars page. For additional wood options or other customizations, contact Kim Griffin directly.

Griffin instruments are lifetime warranted, by Kim Griffin to the original owner, to be free of structural defects caused by materials or workmanship.
