Veillette Releases the Aero Guitar
Combining the ruggedness and ergonomics of a solid-body guitar with the response and tonal character of an acoustic instrument.
Woodstock, NY (October 10, 2016) -- Continuing a tradition of offering unique and innovative tools for players, Veillette Guitars presents the Aero electric-acoustic guitar. Combining the ruggedness and ergonomics of a solid-body guitar with the response and tonal character of an acoustic instrument, it offers a unique take on the electric/acoustic guitar with a surprisingly acoustic sound for live performance and recording. Itâ€™s the ideal response to the challenges of delivering the tonal properties of an acoustic guitar with a reliable, natural-sounding pickup/preamp system that works well through many different types of amplification.
A unique feature in the Aero's construction is that the bridge/top connection and mechanics are exactly those of a standard-built acoustic instrument, except the "floating" responsive area of the spruce top is greatly reduced. This results in an exceptional acoustic tone with no danger of feedback. It's a solid-body guitar with very sophisticated chambering to give it the heart of a true acoustic.
- Solid Sitka spruce top
- Mahogany neck
- Acoustic style pin bridge (pinless bridge is an option)
- 25" scale, 22-fret neck
- Duncan/Turner D-TAR 18-volt pickup/preamp system with volume and tone controls mounted in sound hole.
Veillette players include Dave Matthews, Chris Martin, Vince Gill, James Taylor, John Mayer, Jorma Kaukonen and Colin Hay.
Veillette Guitars are handmade in Woodstock, NY. The Aero has an MSRP of $2750 including case.
