Founded in 1976 by Joe Veillette and Harvey Citron.
Only about 500 handmade instruments were built until 1983, of which about 270 were basses.
Veillette Citron’s instruments are highly sought-after, rare Collectors Items.
Kasim Sultan (Utopia), Rutjer Gunnerson (ABBA), and Van Halen’s Michael Anthony played Veillette Citron 8-string basses.
The bass can be played comfortably up to the 22nd fret, it sounds incredibly good.
Incredibly good, almost flawless condition.
We put on 8 new strings and did a setup.
