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.
