A Baritone 12 with ALL the trimmings - including LEFTY!
December 14, 2011

This Baritone 12-string has just about every special option we can think of.

Veillette Acoustic Baritone 12 Lefty

Built for a repeat client, this stunning guitar's most obvious feature is that it's a left-handed instrument.

Although we don't often talk about this, it's a good time to mention that left-handed instruments are no extra charge!  (It just seems fair...)

Beyond that, what other features are we looking at?

-Slotted headpiece with vintage-style tuners

-Bearclaw spruce top

-Bass-side soundport

-Arm bevel for added comfort

-Top-shelf curly maple back and sides

-Built-in tuner

It's always a fun challenge to play-test the left-handed instruments!  Once we learned to think "upside down", this guitar sounded just incredible - the depth, range, and sheer power of the Baritone 12 never fail to impress.
