Woodstock, NY (May 7, 2011) -- Known for fresh new ideas with inspiring musical results, Veillette Guitars has taken a very melodious look backward with the new Terz 6, a 22 inch scale acoustic 6-string that harks to the early 19th century, and brings all the intriguing hybrid tones of the incredibly successful Terz 12 (Terzilla). Combining elements of tenor guitars, bouzoukis, mandocellos, and the ever-popular Veillette Gryphon, the unique range, punch, and sweetness of the Terz tuning are now available to every adventurous guitar player.



Tuned up to A (or G), the Terz bursts with volume, sparkle, and character. The higher range makes this a powerful tool for layering over standard guitars, doubling or mimicking mandolin or bouzouki parts, or for playing solo in an intriguing sonic middle ground.

In addition, both 6-string and 12-string Terz models are now available with a cutaway for extra upper-fret access, and even greater range for upper-register exploration.



Starting at $3720 retail, the Terz guitars are handmade in Veillette Guitars’ Woodstock NY workshop. Veillette builds a full line of acoustic and electric guitars and basses, with extensive custom shop capability. Customers include Dave Matthews, James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Neal Schon, Joe Perry, Eddie Van Halen, “Skunk” Baxter, Colin Hay, Keller Williams, and many more.

Though not the first, the Charlie Christian pickup was at the vanguard of the shift to electric guitars.

It’s easy to gripe about change, but us guitarists have always had to embrace new technology.

California has always been the place of dreams for young Americans: Hollywood, surf music, pop music, psychedelia, hot rods, biker culture, and glam metal. The Golden State’s only real pop-culture competition has traditionally been New York City, and we know that the beaches and forests are better on the Pacific side. Recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order requiring that, starting in 2035, all new passenger cars and light trucks sold in the state must be zero-emissions vehicles. Once again, Cali leads by example, and what once was unthinkable becomes reality. Strangely, this EV revolution reminds me of the emergence of the electric guitar.
