Veillette Guitars Winter NAMM 2020

It's winter, the holidays are wrapping up and that means Winter NAMM is almost here! We will be in Anaheim January 16 – 19.

Like last year, we will be in the ESP Suite 208 A/B across from PRS. The focus will be our Avante Gryphons but we will have a bass and some electric guitars from the custom shop as well.

If you are at the show, please come by and say hi.

Instruments at NAMM

We will have Avante Gryphons in all the available colors.

To find where you can buy an Avante check out the expanded dealer list here.

Custom Shop

A Paris Nouveau — Fretless 5 string. Our latest evolution of the Paris Bass, this example has a poplar body and a figured maple top, with a mahogany neck and a lined fretless Pau Ferro fingerboard. The bass can produce a wide range of sounds from blending the Citron magnetic pickup and the piezo Hipshot bridge.

Two variations of our newest "True 12" Aero Electric 12 strings. One with sound holes and one without. Both instruments have poplar bodies and Sitka spruce tops finished in light tobacco burst. These are True-12 Veillette 12 strings with 24.1" scale length and compensated zero fret for effortless playing and great intonation.

There's also the Merlin version of our Aero Thinline electric 12 string. Tuned an octave above a standard guitar, it is a great layering or solo instrument on stage or in the studio. The picture below is a natural finish, but the instrument at NAMM will be a tobacco burst finish.
