About the Veleno designs guitar
It has been years that luthiers built guitars with much adventitious materials, from Torres’ paper mache acoustics to Danelectro’s Masonite to Dan Armstrong’s lucite guitars to Steinberger’s all-graphite headless wonders. Those instruments were good at that time, but few of them covered with shiny metal material and gave people an indescribable refresh feeling. Veleno designs guitar came out during that time and became a hallmark decadence of the Me Decade.
The first Veleno design guitar was built by a rhythm master, John Veleno who was born in 1934 and taught guitar lessons when he was young. Liked the most other people struggled for lives at that time, John Veleno had to give up teaching with less income. He moved to Sunshine state because of his wife health condition and get a job in a machine shop in St. Petersburg.
Veleno’s job was to make aluminum boxes at the Universal Machine Company. In order to make more money, John Veleno still taught guitar lessons in his home. However, he found that people did not pay much attention on his house since no special mark on the house and strict local ordinances on the limited area of sign to put to the outside of his house. With all the knowledge and material he had, John Veleno decided to built a guitar-shaped mailbox made of aluminum sit in front of his house. People did not accept a guitar like that in the beginning, but most of them did not know a evolution change of guitar is about to come in guitar history and that is veleno guitar.
The first singer really looked at Veleno designs guitar was Jorge Santana in either 1970 or 1971. The whole brand new cover material and unique design veleno designs ascinated Jorge Santana. He liked veleno guitar so much and insisted to play his first three songs on the show that night even his manager was furious about his action and John Veleno told him that the familiar guitar would be better. After the show, Jorge Santana gave some advice to John Veleno about this aluminum veleno designs guitar.
The original veleno guitar’s prototype had a bird-shaped headstock with six-in-line tuners. One of the suggestions was to change it to three-and-three arrangement which was easier for the singer performed onstage. John Veleno also made some adjustments on the headstock to V headstock, besides that he chose a compromise that combined the Gibson radius with the Fender back on velenos. Numbers of frets Veleno guitar had changed from 21 to 22 and a special quick-drying glue seated on those frets. The first veleno designs bodies were made of 7075 aluminum, John Veleno switched to 6061 aluminum because the previous design veleno guitar changed color quickly.
The price for veleno designs guitar was $600 at that time, but now it is priceless. It is said only around 200 veleno guitar made by John Veleno.
