Blame it on the spellchecker! I have been to Gryphon a few times as I admired Frank Ford working there. There are always nice instruments to find and mostly for me just see. From the outside the building is almost hard to find, pretty hidden in those sidestreets. At that time there was a Mercedes-Benz dealer just opposite, now gone.One wonders as one plunges into doddering old age how one would misspell the name of a shop one has frequented for the last forty years.
Well, that old one sure is purty, and the maple neck differentiates it from the modern F-50, but I agree with Sandy. The NH F-50 (traditional and standard) are best of breed.Do yourself a favor and find a New Hartford F50 Standard. Mine is by far the best F50 I’ve ever played, and you’ll save a bunch of cash, too.
