A very unusual custom
May 14, 2010

Here's a quick snapshot of a very special (and pretty different) piece we just finished...

(Of course, one of the most unusual parts for us is that it's a standard-tuned 6-string guitar!  Yes, we do make them):

 

Custom Veillette 6-string - Joey WeisenbergHere's the story:

 

 

 

Custom body shape

27 frets

Hipshot "Trilogy" multiple tuning bridge: allows 729 different possible tunings (3 different notes per string!), along with pedal-steel type bending effects

Special knob locations for 'rolling' volume and tone while playing

GraphTech "Ghost" piezo bridge

Dual Duncan Vintage Rails pickups

Eclipse blender preamp

 

 

 

This guitar was custom-made for Joey Weisenberg,

a renowned klezmer musician from New York City.

We can't wait to hear what he does with it!
