The Veleno guitar is a highly regarded series of aluminium guitars built by metal craftsman John Veleno. The first guitars were built in 1972. Veleno guitars are known for their unique sound quality. Public Image Ltd. guitarist Keith Levene produced his memorably sharp (and widely imitated)[citation needed] guitar sound using a Veleno.

John Veleno produced very few of his trademark aluminium guitars, and they are considered rare by guitar collectors.
