Griggs Guitars are hand made by Josh Haddix and James Griggs.  Josh is a master luthier with over 20 years experience.  He is an incredible luthier and I am very fortunate to get to work with him.  I consider his craftmanship, fretwork, set up, and intonation to be as fine as anyone in the world.   - J Griggs

Andrew used to work in my shop part time before they got big.  We built his guitar together to my specs except the hand rubbed varnish finish.  Andrew did the Relic Light Sunburst and he calls the unusual color and finish look a "happy mistake."   As long as he likes it thats what matters.    I am really proud of Andrew and Emily they are great friends and have come a long way in the music world.  Andrew is an incredible songwriter.
