It's called a Gryphon, by a company called Veillette. They now make a more affordable version by their sub company called Avante. So you can get the Avante Gryphon (which is like, say epiphone) or the Veillette Gryphon, the higher end. That's actually the instrument that Tim Pierce used on Goo Goo Dolls's "Iris". It sounds like a mandolin, but more mid-scooped.Really gorgeous arranging & playing. Awesome! I will have to view again when I have more time. Curious about one of the instruments played - looks like a 12 string mando or something. What is that instrument?
