Avante Baritone Electro Acoustic Guitar designed by acclaimed US builder Joe Veillette.
Baritone guitars have long been a Joe Veillette speciality and, informed by years of experimentation, his new Avante Baritone models – in 6 and 12 string configurations with a choice of Clear or RetroBurst finishes – have been designed from the ground up to be fully independent, affordable, alternatives to standard tuned acoustics, as well as immensely satisfying and uniquely inviting instruments in their own right.
Featuring solid Sapele Mahogany bodies and Sitka Spruce tops, the Avante Baritone models possess a unique, perfectly defined voice, rich with dynamic overtones and superb projection. The Veillette trademark offset sound holes work especially well to let the lower frequencies speak clearly and forcefully. In addition, the enhanced structural strength of the continuous grain between bridge and neck means that internal bracing is lighter and less rigid, allowing the top to be considerably more responsive and capable of outstanding bottom-end power and clarity.
Scale lengths (27.6″ for the Baritone Six and 26.125” for the Baritone Twelve) are optimally matched to Veillette’s custom-designed string sets and, in conjunction with the use of a zero-fret, the result is flawless intonation and smooth playability that any guitarist will immediately feel comfortable with.
Whatever your style – from Americana and blues to alternative rock and modern folk – the Avante Baritone’s distinctive voice – rich with dynamic overtones – will inspire new ways to express your creativity.
