The Terz 12 is a hybrid that combines elements of tenor guitars, classic 12-strings, mandocellos, and the Gryphon high-tuned 12.

 

Tuned up to G or A, and tuned with pairs on every course, the Terz 12 has volume, sparkle, and character (acquiring the nickname "Terzilla"), according to the company. The range makes this a tool for layering over standard guitars, doubling or mimicking mandolin or bouzouki parts, or for playing solo in an intriguing sonic middle ground.

 

The unison courses produce a chorus effect that make the Terz 12 sound like an orchestra of traditional and ethnic instruments rolled into one package.

Veillette builds a full line of acoustic and electric guitars and basses, with extensive custom shop capability.
