Veillette Guitars Introduces the Concorde Semi-Hollow Bass

The Concrode is a semi-hollow, high-edn bass with a 14" wide body and radiused spruce top.

Woodstock, NY (February 9, 2011) -- Veillette Guitars, known for their wide range of innovative and beautiful hand-crafted instruments, have expanded their range of high-end basses. The new Veillette Concorde semi-hollow bass has the most "acoustic" look, feel, and tone of any of their basses yet.

The 14" wide body is heavily chambered, with dual soundholes and a radiused spruce top. The curved face allows for a deeper body in the center and a thinner, more comfortable edge.

A single passive Citron pickup and a ToneStyler passive tone control deliver full, clear, and articulate tone, with lots of low-end "bloom" and depth, and a acoustic contour that is incredibly responsive to plucking position and right-hand technique. This chameleon of a bass has more tones than any other single-pickup bass you've ever heard, with no batteries, no fuss, and nothing extra.

The one-piece height-adjustable bridge is handmade from wood to match the fingerboard, and features an ebony bridge saddle. Available in 4-, 5-, or 6-string, fretted or fretless, and with a wide range of pickup, control, color, and other options, the Concorde can be tailored to suit almost any need.

Perfectly balanced seated or standing, the Concorde embodies the best of vintage and classic semi-hollowbody basses, combined with modern construction, total fret access, and the best passive components. The result is tone, feel, and style that work with just about every musical style — gracefully and beautifully.

List price for the Concorde Bass starts at $3740 (4-string).
