Veillette Guitars launches the superb AeroElectric True-Twelve 12-string guitar – Guitar.com


Veillette Guitars has unveiled its new model, the AeroElectric True-Twelve 12-string semi-hollow electric.

The guitar eschews much of the traditional semi-hollow format approaches, carrying the same shape as Veillette’s other Aero Thinline acoustic and aeroelectric guitars. A unique cutaway for easy access to the upper frets is transformed into a deep, resonant body. Veillete further explains his manufacturing methods, exploring how the design reduces the risk of feedback, stating that “the construction of the Aero is unique in that the bridge / top connection and mechanics are exactly that of a Standard acoustic instrument except that the “floating” the responsive area of ​​the spruce top is significantly reduced. The result is exceptional acoustic sound without the risk of feedback.

Veillette also notes that the guitar is “designed specifically as a 12-string guitar, not just a 6-string guitar with a wider neck and more strings.” This means that the guitar has a zero fret offset for more precise intonation, which can be an issue in 12-string versions of 6-string guitars.

The guitar’s neck is mahogany, while the poplar body features a Sitka spruce top. This 12-string model of the AeroElectric has a scale length of 24.125 inches and a radius of 14 inches, as well as an ebony fingerboard and 22 frets.

When it comes to hardware and electronics, this model comes with a two-piece tune-o-matic style bridge, Hipshot tuners, two Seymour Duncan Vintage Rail single coil humbuckers, a volume and tone knob. main and a three-way button selector.

The AeroElectric 12-string lists for $ 3,450. More information at veilletteguitars.com. For more guitar news, click here.
