James Tyler USA – Studio Elite HD

Oh how we love James Tyler Guitars….resonant…those necks….you just want to hold them.  Toneful….SUPER diverse tones available….really the ONE guitar for someone who can have/take only one.  BUT we know that’s not you…you have LOTS of guitars….so get this one and you will quickly start to realize that maybe you can get rid of others ….it is subtraction through addition (you see)….you get a guitar that is world class AND flexible….you then realize you can get rid of a couple that are not as nice…..you can tell your wife that you are SAVING money by spending…just doing it in reverse…you see!

This is SUPER light weight at just 6lb-07oz (likely chambered).  Standard /59 C profile neck .845″-.975″.  Factory Midboost (a MUST on Tylers).  Stingray 500 Single Coils & a California Special in the bridge.  Mamywo & QUILTED MAPLE Body.  Nonsmoking and YES it has the TREM BAR, ORIGINAL HARDSHELL CASE (GREY) and CERT AND TOOLS (I know you would pass on this if it didn’t have the tools…but not before you emailed “tools????????”….or called and said “Tools????????”.  Don’t be a tool…don’t ask about them.  And don’t go run to the internet and say ‘Ahhh you would think for $4k the guitar would come with tools”….and don’t then try to force a return because “you didn’t disclose that it didn’t have the tools”….your plans are foiled because…>THIS HAS THE TOOLS!!!

Teuffel Tesla Classic

2011 Teuffel Tesla Classic in Sapphire Blue with Original Hardshell Case!  This even comes with a padded extra case as well!   The instrument was home-use only and is from a nonsmoking environment.  As a store specializing in high end boutique gear I consider Teuffels to be the pinncale of modern creation.  They are ergonomic and toneful and works of art.  They take over where Kleins were and take things to an entire new level or functional form.  Tonally they are a nuance player’s dream because they are super responsive to finger and pick dynamics.

Just look at the heavily birdseyed neck on this one.  Play with the 3 custom buttons that allow you to have a TON of fun….if you like a Ronin with a Torniculator then you will LOVE this.   These guitars sound wonderful through vintage amps, modern amps AND modeling amps.  I simply can’t find a bad sound out of it.  The neck has that bubbly tone with some nice snap.  The bridge pickup has a musical growl yet retains all the clarity when you take things up a notch with gain.

Any style of player will adore this Teuffel Tesla Classic.  Light, ergonimic, easy to play, easy to carry, and tuneful. What more can you ask for?
