Joe Veillette

Joe Veillette took a luthier class, a class by Michael Gurian back in 1971 and never looked back!  He became so interested in guitar building that he teamed up with Harvey Citron and formed Veillette-Citron in 1976.  The two luthiers collaborated with John Sebastian to develop and market the first production baritone guitar. Veillette-Citron pioneered neck-thru-body construction, made innovations in instrument electronics, and set new trends in modern electric bass design. And that was only the beginning of a career that has redefined handcrafted guitar building!
