Veillette Guitars presents the Aero electric-acoustic Guitar. Combining the ruggedness and ergonomics of classic Veillette Journeyman guitars with the response and character of their acoustic instruments, it offers a unique take on the electric/acoustic guitar with a surprisingly acoustic sound for live performance and recording. The Aero provdes the ideal response to the challenges of delivering the tonal properties of an acoustic guitar with a reliable, natural-sounding pickup/preamp system that works well through many different types of amplification.
A unique feature in the Aero's construction is that the bridge/top connection and mechanics are exactly those of a standard-built acoustic instrument, except the "floating" responsive area of the spruce top is greatly reduced. This results in an exceptional acoustic tone with no danger of feedback. It's a solid-body guitar with very sophisticated chambering to give it the heart of a true acoustic. The Aero features a Solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany neck, acoustic style pin bridge (pinless bridge is an option), 25" scale, and 22-fret neck.
Veillette players include Dave Matthews, Chris Martin, Vince Gill, James Taylor, John Mayer, Jorma Kaukonen and Colin Hay, who can be seen in the video at bottom playing an Aero as he performs his Men at Work Hit "Who Can It Be Now?"
Veillette Guitars are handmade in Woodstock, NY. With full custom-shop flexibility, almost any special request can be accommodated.
The Aero has an MSRP of $2750 (including D-Tar Wavelength piezo/preamp system and case).
