The Kala U-Bass arrived safely and is performing manfully. It certainly punches well above its weight. My thanks to all concerned.

Plays well, sounds good. Put lighter strings on it so it plays even better for me.
For a small instrument it is easy to 'capo up'. Looking forward to my first gig to fully test it in an amplified situation, though it sounds good in the home.
I was a bit surprised at the bright red tinge which wasn't quite mahogany. Still looks good.

Even in the face of the dawning Brexit, I am sure my friends from the Acoustic Centre will keep up their reliable service for us Continentals!
Can hardly tell you how much I love the Veillette Gryphon - it's a constant source of inspiration.
Thanks & Cheers,

You can only love this guitar!
A miracle instrument for dreamers! Thank you.

Electric violins are a new area for me. After some research I felt an NS would be best due to its size, design, easy stringing, tuning stability & overall build/sound quality.
Barry at TAC was extremely helpful in answering my questions.
I can say that I am very pleased indeed with the violin. Although a 'passive' instrument, it plugs straight into the microphone socket on my keyboard & the amplified sound is great, as is the tone control. I am able to obtain tones which range from traditional classic to folk.
The only downside is the shoulder rest... getting it into a comfortable position is fairly straightforward. However, whatever I do, the rest persists in moving when I'm playing.
Anyone at TAC got any ideas about how to put this right? If it wasn't for that, I would have given this a 5 star review as the violin itself certainly deserves it.

Very impressed with this little guitar. Well-made and sounds wonderful. I am especially happy about the tuners, which feel very smooth with a high gear ratio to allow very accurate adjustments to the unison strings.
My own personal preference for looser strings and the range of my singing voice made me de-tune the guitar from D down to Bb which now puts it right where I would normally use a capo on a regular guitar.
Very pleased with this purchase and my experience at Acoustic Centre. Many thanks!

Just received the Veillette Avante Gryphon today. I much appreciated the free EU postage with UPS who delivered to this little corner of the world very quickly.
The instrument itself is wonderful. The wound strings are a bit heavier gauge than I like but I can change that myself. This is a beautiful, quirky piece that will be a great creative inspiration in the years to come. Many thanks!!! I am very happy with all aspects of this purchase.
BTW... You have Brian May to thank for bringing my attention to this special guitar. I saw him with it on his site demonstrating a mic clamp and immediately knew I had to try this little 12-string.
