Veillette Guitars takes great pride in offering guitarists a whole new tonality in an affordable package.

Veillette Gryphons have found their way onto the biggest stages been and heard on some of the most listened-to recordings in the business. The Avante Gryphon® continues in this tradition delivering the same exciting tonal personality: mandolin-like punch, with shimmering, naturally chorused top end character.

Celestial, sparkling highs and punchy mid-register allow the Avante Gryphon® to shine in a wide range of applications. Guitarists can immediately play mandolin-style parts in a new high register without learning a new tuning. As a songwriting tool, for doubling or layering in studio, and even as a compact traveling companion, the Avante Gryphon is guaranteed to inspire.

The Avante Gryphon® also excels as a guitarist-friendly alternative to traditional folk instruments like the bouzouki, mandocello, and Cuban tres and cuatro.

With eye-catching small size and clean modern design, the Avante Gryphon® stands apart from the crowded market of typical 6-strings, and offers a new and exciting alternative for any player looking to expand their range and versatility beyond the boundaries of their favorite guitar.

Handcrafted under exclusive license to Veillette's exacting standards, the Avante Gryphon® features:

Top: Solid Spruce
Back and Sides: Solid Mahogany
Neck: Mahogany Fingerboard: Rosewood
Bridge: Rosewood
Electronics: Piezo transducer and active preamp Scale Length: 18.5" Scale Instrument 

Length: 32.5" Overall length

Avante instruments are equally at home on stage, in the studio, or in the most intimate acoustic setting.

Whether plugged in or acoustically, the Avante Gryphon® is in a class by itself.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
