For Sale: Unique Garrison AGD300BK acoustic guitar
This smart-looking black gloss dreadnought acoustic guitar was designed by Garrison
Guitars of Canada and provided with what is known as the Griffiths' Active Bracing System.
This means that it has standard wooden internal bracing at its back and around the sides
but at the top inside it has the revelutionary Griffiths' fibre glass bracing system which
includes the internal bridge plate, for extra strength and sound transfer across the
soundboard and extra projection. I have had a sighted person look it over and am told
that it has no visible dents, scratches, scuffs, wear and tear on the body or neck, except
for a very small and slight scrape on the edge of the top of the headstock at the back.
This is also the only thing you can feel on the whole guitar if you check it tactiley and
this could easily be elinated with a thin touch of black gloss paint or nail varnish. It
also has no physical issues at all. The guitar has spent its whole life being well looked
after in a hard case with a humidifier in their too. It is almost as good as new.
These Garrison' AGD300s are also known simply as the AG-300.
The guitar cost £300.00 when new and the RRP was more like £350.00. I have recently
upgraded it by fitting new brass bridge pins and have only two weeks ago installed new
Elixir Nanoweb phosphor bronze strings, which should last the best part of a year. The
string height/action of the guitar has been modified to make it lower and thus play
easier. The guitar would be excellent as a first guitar for learners who could then go on
to be happy with it as a guitar to continue with or for more experienced guitarist wanting
to upgrade a more basic guitar or own a second guitar for practising purposes.
Being glossy black all over (except for the body and neck binding, fingerboard and
rosette), you cannot easily visually see the timbers used to construct it but the
specification from the influential Blue Book of guitars is as follows:
Solid ash top,
ash back and sides,
ivory colorbody binding,
round soundhole with multi-ring rosette,
rosewood fingerboard with dot inlay,
ash headstock with three-per-side tuners,
available in Black, Blue, Green, Natural, or Red finish,
24.25 in. scale,

Whilst I could not find any Youtube videos of this exact guitar being played, I did find a
few of the Garrison AGD200 guitar. To hear videos of the slightly lower spec and slightly
cheaper AGD200 (AKA AG200) being demoed, go to the below resources. This has lower spec
woods of nato back and sides and spruce top, but is otherwise very similar in how it plays
and sounds, paste the below URLs into your browser:
