Veillette Swift Electric Guitar

Veillette Swift Electric Guitar


The Swift is a sleek and elegant take on a classic configuration. Dual humbucking pickups and a hard-mounted metal bridge, 22-fret neck (24 for baritones), and dead-simple switching and controls make for a guitar that feels immediately familiar and comfortable. The contoured body shape, curved from edge to edge, reduces weight and lets the right arm cross comfortably over without 'cutting' or discomfort.

In the standard wood combination: poplar body, maple top, and wenge fingerboard, the Swift is a crisp, responsive, and lively sounding guitar. Chords remain clear and distinct, and the strong midrange works beautifully with overdriven amps.

The Swift also retains our classic bolt-on neck joint, using a steel machine bolt for long, clean sustain, rugged roadworthiness, and easy maintenance.

Veillette Gryphon High Tuned 12 Guitar

Veillette Gryphon High Tuned 12

The newest Journeyman, the Gryphon High-Unison 12-string, has already made waves as a fascinating new style of guitar with a wide range of applications. This 18.5" scale guitar, which is tuned almost one octave higher than a regular guitar, is strung with mandolin-like unison pairs. These doubled strings provide incredible punch and “cut”, with amazing and complex high overtones that bring to mind instruments like the tres, cuatro, and bouzouki.

The Gryphon uses custom LaBella GR-12 strings

Veillette Standard Tuned Guitar 12 string

Veillette Standard Tuned Guitar 12


Standard-tuned 12-string features a 24.1" scale, a change from the "standard" which makes the instrument fundamentally easier to play. The reduced string tension results in playability that most 12-string players would never imagine possible, even with heavier gauge strings. Intonation in the upper ranges is also dramatically improved over the average 12.

Veillette Baritone Guitars
Veillette Baritone Guitars

Veillette Baritone Guitars


A specialty for many years, the Veillette Baritone models have attracted a long list of adventurous players, including Ani DiFranco, Kaki King, "Skunk" Baxter, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, Eddie Van Halen, and many, many more.

Veillette Baritones are designed for maximum playability and comfort, and scale lengths are chosen to optimize these factors for each model. The Baritone 6-string's 27.7" scale has plenty of tension and length for the fullest possible sound, without excessive, uncomfortable fret spacing. The Baritone 12-string's 26.1" scale length is a little shorter, to compensate for the added tension and fretting pressure of the high octave strings.

The rich low-end voice of these guitars is perfect for solo artists, singers with a naturally lower range, or any guitarist who wants huge, full, powerful tone and extended range.

Veillette Nylon String Guitar

Veillette Nylon String Guitars

Nylon-string guitars address one of the biggest challenges in live performance - how to get a high quality, responsive amplified sound from a nylon-string guitar. Feedback, body and fret noise, and reduced freedom of movement are usually facts of life for nylon-string players.

Standard-tuned Nylon-string guitar resolves these issues, using the same template as Veillettes steel-string instruments, with some specifically nylon-string detailing. The flat fingerboard, 2" & 1/16"nut, and 648mm scale are immediately comfortable for the nylon-string player. Feedback and extraneous noise are things of the past. Even high-volume performance situations, such as latin bands, large auditoriums, and other demanding situations are no problem - a full-range, natural-sounding nylon-string sound can be had at any level.

Veillette Nylon Baritone Guitar

Veillette Nylon Baritone Guitars

Baritone Nylon-string takes these elements to a new level, with a rich low range that is at once tight, strong, and clean sounding, with a 'bounce' that blends perfectly with the upper ranges. Solo guitarists benefit from the added depth and warmth, and basslines in the lower range sound big, round, and distinct. The 26.1" scale and custom strings on this model guarantee clean bass and excellent tension.
