Veillette Aero-Electric 12-String Tobacco Burst
The Aero Electric is easy to play, great sounding, and very light. The radiused top provides comfort and ease of movement for the player's arm and generous and comfortable width at the nut makes it easy to play. The extensive chambering sounds great and makes for a light weight, under 7 pounds, making it comfortable for extended shows and sessions.
The Aero Electric really benefits from Veillette's True 12 approach. They have been building 12 string electric guitars for a long time and have made many refinements over the years. The shorter scale length of 24 1/8", the compensated zero fret, and the string gauges Veillette uses all contribute to the clear ringing tone that stays in tune all the way up the neck.
This design sounds great with other tunings. The Gryphon version of the design adds a unique character to their popular high D-D tuning. Other tunings like Baritone, Terz, and Merlin will all benefit from the Aero Electric design.
