Build entirely in Canada, virtually all specifications of the guitar can be customized to the player's needs including wood selections, hardware, electronics, inlays, and finish.

Sherwood Park, AB (October 13, 2016) -- Triad Custom Guitars is pleased to announce the launch of their newest guitar model, the Griffon. Named after the griffon vulture (a bird of prey native to Europe), this model is available to custom order directly from the builder. Built entirely in Canada, virtually all specifications of the guitar can be customized to the player's needs or wants, including wood selections, hardware, electronics, inlays, and finish.

Triad uses a combination of CNC technology and traditional hand techniques to craft their instruments. All guitars feature pocketed fret slots, which hides the fret ends, producing the smooth look and feel of binding even on unbound necks. Additional standard features include stainless steel frets, Luminlay side dots, and a Mono Vertigo case.

Base specs:

  • 25.5" scale, 24 frets
  • Five piece laminated neck
  • Chambered body with figured or burl top
  • Triad's handwound humbucker pickups
  • Hipshot locking tuners
  • Graph Tech TusqXL nut

The Griffon is available direct starting at $3800 CAD (around $2900 USD) with a 4 to 6 month build time.
