Description

Call for best price! Dream Guitars owner Paul Heumiller had an idea that Joe Veillette could build a wonderful Terz, short scale guitar, an instrument Paul is very fond of. He suggested this to Joe and the 'Terzilla' was born. This Veillette Terzilla guitar bridges the gap between a traditional 6 string acoustic/electric and the short-scale instruments, like the Gryphon, that Veillette is known for. The 22 3/4" scale means you tune to G and get a wonderful chimey, bell-like voice that is wonderful for singer and accompanists alike. The size also make this a superb travel guitar that can easily fit in an overhead or be carried on hikes, etc. We love it!

We loved this one so much that we teamed up with Al Petteway and recorded it on our latest album: Dream Guitars Volume II Hand Picked. It is Track #7 - Breton Dance.

I've long played Terz size guitars for their inspiration as I write music. The beautiful high tuned voice is angelic and extremely useful in a variety of ways. I suggested to Joe Veillette that he could do a great job with a Terz and sure enough he proved me right. This guitar is superb. The short scale and his zero fret design is super easy to play. The voice is punchy and bell-like and sounds amazing fingerstyle or strummed. The higher range makes this a great instrument to add color to a group or an original voice to solo arrangements or singer-songwriter material. Something new and exciting... the Veillette Terzilla, Terz guitar.
 
I can see a number of uses for this instrument. The sounds and textures it produces with the double strings are brilliant and fall into a range that is perfect for overdubbing on a recording session. It's also just fun to play - I had a lot of fun recording this one on Dream Guitars Volume II, Hand Picked.
