Introducing Avante by Veillette...(This is big news!!!)
January 20, 2014

It's nearly NAMM time, so we've decided to officially let the big cat out of the bag...

After months of planning, development, and prototyping, we are very excited to introduce Avante by Veillette, a new line of production instruments that offers our signature tone and design in a more affordable package!

The original Veillette Gryphon has been our best-selling instrument for close to a decade, and has brought many, many wonderful players and performers into the Veillette family.  It never fails to charm, inspire, and excite.

The new Avante Gryphon delivers the same exciting personality: mandolin-like punch, with shimmering, naturally chorused top end character.  Intriguing textures and tones, with no learning curve, make it an immediately useful tool for any guitarist.

This doesn't just look like a Veillette Gryphon - it really performs like one.  We took care to make sure all the important features were done right, from the bracing, frets, and neck shape to the control locations and pickup type.  We are thrilled with the results!  These are serious guitars - professional quality, priced for the working musician.

Handcrafted under exclusive license, and to our exacting standards, Avante by Veillette instruments feature solid spruce tops, solid mahogany backs, sides, and necks, solid rosewood fingerboards and bridges, and real bone nuts and saddles.  Equipped with a piezo transducer and active preamp, the Avante instruments are equally at home on stage, in the studio, or in the most intimate acoustic setting.  They also make ideal companions for travel, with an overhead-friendly small case and road-tested ruggedness.
