Veillette Guitars handcrafted in Woodstock, NY
Veillette Electric Gryphon
High-tuned (D-D) 6 string and Unison 12-string

The Electric Gryphon is a sleek and elegant twist on our classic Acoustic Gryphon. With the same scale length (18.1") and tuning (D-D) as the Acoustic Gryphon, the Electric Gryphon delivers the same playability and comfort that has made the Gryphon instruments one of our most popular designs.

The Swift Gryphon's magnetic pickup and simple but versatile controls perfectly complement the chime, sparkle, and complex overtones that bring to mind mandolins, bouzoukis, and Cuban guitars, with beautiful natural chorusing from the unison-tuned courses.

The Swift's body's curved/radiused face reduces weight and increases player comfort, allowing the arm to follow the top's natural slope. With the sweetness to suit soft fingerstyle accompaniment, and the power to drive through a dense electric mix, the Swift electric Gryphon can hold its own in any band or stage situation.

Exceptional for "layering" or complementing other guitars, Veillette Gryphons are also perfect for solo artists seeking a truly new texture and tonality.

Compact and travel-ready, Veillette electric Gryphons feature the easily adjustable neck joint system and stylish design features that distinguish all our instruments.

Available in 6-string and 12-string. Many custom configurations available — call us or see our Custom page for more possibilities!
