Veillette Avante Gryphon High-Tuned 12
Veillette Guitars takes great pride in offering guitarists a whole new tonality in an affordable package. Veillette Gryphons have found their way onto the biggest stages been and heard on some of the most listened-to recordings in the business. The Avante Gryphon continues in this tradition delivering the same exciting tonal personality: mandolin-like punch, with shimmering, naturally chorused top end character.

Celestial, sparkling highs and punchy mid-register allow the Avante Gryphon to shine in a wide range of applications. Guitarists can immediately play mandolin-style parts in a new high register without learning a new tuning. As a songwriting tool, for doubling or layering in studio, and even as a compact traveling companion, the Avante Gryphon is guaranteed to inspire.

The Avante Gryphon also excels as a guitarist-friendly alternative to traditional folk instruments like the bouzouki, mandocello, and Cuban tres and cuatro. With eye-catching small size and clean modern design, the Avante Gryphon stands apart from the crowded market of typical 6-strings, and offers a new and exciting alternative for any player looking to expand their range and versatility beyond the boundaries of their favorite guitar.
