“The Guitar Is Extension Of The Player’s Soul, And It Must Inspire Players On Every Level: Beauty; Feel; And Tone. Beauty Conveys Confidence To Peers And To Non-Peers. “This Artist Means Business, Just Look At That””

Plates & Inlays

Plates & Inlays

Aluminum plating, designed and often hand engraved by Teye, and all custom inlays add beauty, clarity and pop to the Teye sound

2 Octave Neck 

2 Octave Fingerboard

The  24-fret neck actually goes all the way up to an e, a crucial note (root and 5th) in ‘typical guitar keys’ like E and A. But more importantly: 24 frets place the neck pickup in a better position. When you move the neck pickup slightly closer to the bridge, its frequency response becomes slightly brighter and more in line with the response of the bridge pickup.

Headplates

Headplates

The sound guys at a show once used Teye’s undersaddle pickup, but added two microphones to his Flamenco guitar: one of which was pointed at his headstock.  The resulting brilliance and added musical whisper inspired Teye to pay special attention to his headstocks, which add incredibly to the guitar’s overall Tonal character.

Mood

Mood

In Teye’s words: coil splitting gives more options but with unusable tones. Teye wanted great uncompromised Tones from all his switch and knob positions. So he came up with a filtering system that did just that.

Specialist Wood

Bridge

Teye often uses Korina a “super mahogany” African wood that is difficult to work, but provides for a sweeter midrange and enhanced responsiveness

Mojo

Mojo

Imagine the already wonderful Mood circuitry with an afterburner: THAT is the next-step MOJO control. It goes way deeper than the Mood and does it in a more musical way. It also relies on way more expensive parts, custom-made for this application.

Bridge

Tail Piece

Teye’s first prototype tailpieces were massive hand-shaped blocks of engraved aluminum. Then an experiment led to a thinner bar of brass. The Tone jumped: more lows, more highs, and much more midrange punch. But it was ugly, so Teye quickly added an engraved hand-shaped aluminum cover. For 12-string guitars, Teye goes back to aluminum bars, for added jangle.

5 Way Switch

5 Way Switch

Simply a 4-deck rotary switch mounted on a lever. This means that with this switch you pack an incredible amount of potency underneath a classic and familiar feel.

Tailpiece

Bridge

The Teye bridge is a very tight construction made of aluminum chosen for its stiffness and lightness and brilliant resonance. The saddles are ¼” wide and the string guided over the full ¼” (6.35mm) after Teye started to replace his 2mm wide bone saddles on his flamenco guitars with 3mm because the sound was better with the wider saddle. Teye’s experiments led to the ¼” size.
