Acoustic Bass!! The first look...
March 26, 2009

Here it is (well, some of it...)

Our Acoustic Bass is finally off the paper and taking shape in real life. Here's the assembled rim and neck, being modeled by Ande.

Details to follow, but the basics are: -17" body width -34" scale

This first bass is a 4-string, unlined fretless.

75% of the Veillette workforce (that is, 3 of us) are bass players, so we're all really excited about this. It's been a long time coming, and it should be worth the wait.

More progress reports will be coming soon, since we're all really anxious to see this come together.


There are a couple new guitars on the Specials page... they're both really nice guitars and great deals. Click "Specials" on the left-side bar to see them.

Guitars as Fine Art, Art as Fine Guitars
March 13, 2009

You never know what's going to happen when people who do different sorts of things decide to collaborate. You're all invited to the William Turner Gallery in Santa Monica CA to see a couple of dual-humbucker Elan 6-strings clothed in some great images by a wonderful artist - Michel Tabori. The show will run from Saturday March 14th (opening reception at 6:30 pm) till April 25th.

Our tone secret revealed...

Finally, the truth comes out:

This innovative treatment gives our guitars that special 'vibe' that sets them apart.

Coming soon to Atlanta Bass Gallery....
February 24, 2009

This killer Paris 5MP (magnetic + piezo) is headed down to Atlanta Bass Gallery this week.

The walnut top on this bass comes from a plank that Joe bought in 1974, and we just started cutting up last year. (There's was a nice big plank!)

Jim at Atlanta is a great guy and has a fantastic shop. Hopefully, it will get a little more fantastic in a week or so when this bass shows up on the wall! Stop by and visit him, in person or online at
