Veillette Guitars handcrafted in Woodstock, NY


The Veillette Lyric (formerly known as the Flyer Jazz) is an archtop/x-brace hybrid that covers a lot of ground from the thick, sweet tone of a true hollowbody jazz axe to beefy blues and Americana.

The Lyric's midrange is lively, open, and very vocal — excellent for complex chords and fast solo passages, where note definition is essential. Fat, strong trebles and a well-defined low end give the guitar a clear and balanced voice through its whole range, perfect for everything from solo chord-melody to big-band rhythm playing.

The solid Sitka Spruce top is curved into a "radiused" arc shape, yielding a stiff but lightweight face that reacts similarly to a carved archtop plate. The adjustable height floating bridge and custom-designed wooden tailpiece contribute to a fast, responsive attack, and offer excellent adjustability and serviceability.

The carefully targeted top thickness and bracing pattern are designed to minimize feedback while still delivering the responsiveness, feel, and "air" that only a true hollowbody can offer.

The Lyric has smooth curves and a 14" lower bout. Comfortable, but large enough to deliver a rich full sound. Also available, the compact 13" version which is a very satisfying, full-sounding guitar with truly incredible portability — this guitar fits in our "Baby"-sized Gryphon case and will fit in airline overhead bins! Both versions have a full-scale (25") 22-fret neck.

Sleek, compact, and classy, the Lyric is the perfect choice for jazz, blues, R&B, and more with vintage-inspired hollowbody vibe and modern player-friendly features and reliability.
