Description

"I'm proud to have planted a seed with Joe Veillette to make a Terz instrument, and to see it come to fruition here is just wonderful. I've long been a fan of Terz guitars as I'm a songwriter and find inspiration in instruments with a unique voice. Tuned low, like a Baritone, or tuned high, like Joe's Gryphon or this Terzilla, you are instantly inspired to do something new and that's a powerful thing." - Paul Heumiller

From the Veillette website: "The Veillette Terz 12 is a powerful and intriguing hybrid of many different concepts. Tuned up to the player's choice of G or A, and strung with unison pairs, the Terz 12 blends the full, wide sound of a 12-string guitar with the clean shimmer of a mandolin or bouzouki thanks to the Mahogany back and sides and Sitka Spruce top. The sound of the higher tuning and shorter scale (21 7/8") is powerful and complex - bursting with harmonics and 'cut', and perfect for layering over other guitars, doubling, or accompanying singers or instruments with a naturally higher range. With its fast, tight, and defined lower register and thick natural chorus, the Terz 12 also excels for solo fingerstyle playing, particularly for the adventurous guitarist seeking something beyond just another standard 6-string. "

If you write music on guitar you really owe it to yourself to have one of these Veillette Terz guitars. I guarantee you will instantly find a new, creative voice and new ideas will spring forth. It's so much fun to play G shapes for instance, but be sounding in Bb or C, or to play E shapes and be sounding in G or A. For singers this gives the ability to sing in new, and possibly better sounding, keys and the unison strings adds power without the twang of octave strings as on a typically 12 string. It's a more pure voice. I'm adding one to my collection, that's for sure...
 
This instrument fills a really nice spot in the sonic palette. Any guitarist who does a lot of recording would love this guitar. It's also a blast to play and inspires all kinds of ideas that would never come to mind with a standard 12-string or bouzouki.
