A little something by Neal Schon from Easter weekend on his Veillette Doubleneck 12 string Gryphon/6 string Guitar:
Neal Schon - Star Spangled Banner
NAMMLast January's NAMM in Anaheim was great. At the ESP (our Avante distributor) suite again, we introduced lots of folks to the Avante Gryphons and showed a handful of instruments from the Woodstock USA shop. It's always a treat hear what folks play when presented with an unexpected tonality.

Ande and Joe
The Aero Electric True 12 (Standard-Tuned) from the Woodstock shop was a big hit. The slightly shorter 24.1" scale and compensated zero-fret makes for an amazingly easy to play, 12-string with huge, chimey tone.
We've always appreciated Tim's support. Check out his web site.
A new wrinkle - our first Aero Electric Gryphon 12 string. The Gryphon is one of our most popular tonal configurations for acoustic or electric models, and this Aero Electric added another great take on the platform.
We've made Aero Thinline instruments for Dave Matthews (2 Baritone 12 strings) and Colin Hay (Standard tuned 6 string) and others. We brought Gryphon and Merlin versions to NAMM which got great reactions with the look and sound of an acoustic instrument in a compact, rugged, feedback proof package. The Aero Merlin Thinline is a full octave above a standard tuned guitar. It's a great sounding, fun mandolin substitute instrument that.s easy to play for layering or solo playing.
Recent Special BuildsIt's no surprise that we love a challenge. This one was fun - an Acoustic Bass/Nylon String 6 string doubleneck guitar. A challenging project, but the result made for a very happy customer.
We received a lot of interest in acoustic basses lately. Here's a new fretted Brazilian Rosewood 5-string:
Speaking of Brazilian rosewood, here is a standard-tuned 16" Grand Acoustic guitar we just delivered last month.
What's NewThe Flyer is a unique acoustic model with its curved top, thin body, and traditional blues/jazz vibe. We debuted our new acoustic style pinless bridge on this Flyer 13. It's got a 13" lower bout, as opposed to the Flyer 14 standard which is 14". Great sound in a more streamlined package, and easier string changes with an aggressive, punchy tone.
Below is a just-completed Flyer 4 string Bass. The new pin-less acoustic bridge provides lots of contact with the top for a punchy sound.
We have some unusual instruments under construction now, including our first nylon string acoustic Terz 6. Another is our first Aero Thinline Nylon, this one with a radius top. With oval soundhole and nylon strings we're expecting some real Bossa Nova energy.
