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.

Thanks to Steve Krenz for this great video.

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.

Handcrafted under exclusive license to Veillette's exacting standards, the Avante Gryphon® features.

Solid Spruce Top
Solid Mahogany Back and Sides
Mahogany Neck
Rosewood Fingerboard and Bridge
Piezo transducer and active preamp
18.5" Scale
32.5" Overall length

Avante instruments are equally at home on stage, in the studio, or in the most intimate acoustic setting.

Whether plugged in or acoustically, the Avante Gryphon® is in a class by itself.
