Meanwhile the guitars of Ulrich Teuffel are worldwide searched instruments that can be considered as a ‘sounding art objects’ equally. Museums and major artists are thrilled by his innovative ideas and creations.

                Ulrich Teuffel is manufacturing every guitar completely by himself in very small quantities, i.e. not more than 20 units over all per year.

I am delighted to offer you a Teuffel Guitar from time to time.

My great-grandfather was engineer, my grandfather was an engineer, my father is an engineer, my second grandfather was a cabinetmaker, my uncle is a cabinetmaker, my granduncle was a painter, so what can I say: becoming an accountant has never been my ambition. An inventor is a bit more my style.

Birdfish Classic

In spring of 1995 Ulrich Teuffel presented the  ‘birdfish’ for the first time at the ‘Frankfurter Musikmesse’.  The British magazine „Guitarist“ picked it as one of the most important guitars of the 20th century. The birdfish has won three design awards and is on display in several museums. It is played by musicians such as David Torn, Henry Kaiser, Hans Zimmer, Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Page Hamilton, Kirk Hammett, Amir Derakh and many others.

“My original idea was to build a guitar which is constructed so that the fundamental elements, the tonewoods and the pickups, are put together in a modular fashion. This design not only allows unlimited tonal possibilities, but also results in a very lively and percussive tone.”

The ‘birdfish’ series is limited to 500 instruments.

The offered instrument has ‘charcoal’ color.
2 sets ‘tonebars come as standard. The ‘tonebars’ define the sound’ of the guitar.
They consist of American Alder and Michigan Maple.
2 single coils and 3 humbuckers are also included. The character of the single coils is vintage, the humbucker is respectively P90, PAF and PAF hot.

The ‘birdfish’ comes in a tailored, sturdy case.

Tesla – Classic Studio

This guitar combines the ‘Tesla’ the ‘Studio Model’ with 3 PU’s and the ‘Classic Model’ with the ‘Noisebuttons’. It is a reminiscence of classical guitar making – and yet it is quite different: the Tesla creates unrest, is exhilarating and present. In other words, the ‘Tesla’ is a design of  modernity at its best.

The handling is perfect and testifies great creative power and craftsmanship in the implementation. The striking sound of this instrument is extremely powerful and modern due to the thought-out special design. With the ‘Noise Buttons’, Ulrich Teuffel incorporates some ‘archetypes’ of the past into this instrument, closing the gap between tradition and modernity in an extraordinarily exciting way.

The instrument offered here was the personal demonstration guitar by Ulrich Teuffel and can therefore be offered at a special price. The body consists of ‘alder’ on both sides of the neck. The neck passing through the body is made of ‘bird’s eye maple’. The fretboard is made of ‘Pau Ferro’.

It comes in the color ‘apricote’ and with a special ‘Tesla’ case to you.
