You are looking at a Teye Guitars La Pirata Electric Guitar Shipwreck, serial number 00424. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 3.9 oz.)The Teye Guitar Company calls Austin, Texas — the other music city — home. Although USA born and bred, these masterpiece guitars have an international pedigree. Visually, guitar aficionados will instantly recognize the resemblance to the London-made instruments that single handily started the "boutique" guitar market. From exotic woods and finishes to metal tops and pearl mosaics, Teye guitars are a feast for the eyes. As bold as the appearance of a Teye is, they are far more than just beautifully appointed instruments.
Very smooth and fast feel, in part owing to a thin finish of hand-rubbed oil. Impeccable fretwork ensures all notes ring across the entire 25.5-inch scale length. A 1-3/4" nut width, plus the heelless neck joint, is reminiscent of a flamenco or classical guitar of Spain. Neck edges are rolled-in nicely, and the extra wide nut is fast to get used to. The guitars are known for superb, fast, and comfortable playability, with easy access to all 24 frets. Top quality ebony fretboards are standard on all models, except the Gypsy Queen "F" series.
Hand-selected choice mahogany, Spanish cedar (a lightweight, resonant timber from the mahogany family), Walnut or Korina (African mahogany or Limba) bodies are hand-rubbed with luthier oil. No wood filler is used on natural models.
Extremely versatile electronics controls feature a 5-way blade switch, standard style volume and tone controls, and a proprietary "mood" knob. This 100% passive mood circuit works in each of the five pickup positions. Roll it up for full-bodied humbucker tone; roll it back for single-coil spank. Out-of-phase tones, icepick single-coil bite, and humbucker roar are all super easy to control with these classic and intuitive controls. Is this two guitars in one? Nope. It's all guitars in one!
Do not let their striking appearance or versatility allow you to think of Teye guitars as gimmicky in any way. Their heart, soul, and backbone are all of world-class playing and sounding caliber. And that's where the real beauty of Teye Guitars lies.
Dishing out loads of tone through a single humbucker, this one-eyed (one-pickup) pirate is still deadly. Crafted from select mahogany, the body and neck of the T-Series La Pirata are dressed in Teye's exclusive Shipwreck finish to provide an exotic aesthetic that's matched by its boutique-style engraved metal adornments. Equipped with a single DiMarzio Tone-Zone bridge pickup and Teye's proprietary circuitry, the T-Series La Pirata offers up an extensive sonic range right at your fingertips thanks to Teye's unique Môd-knob. The Teye T-Series La Pirata is painstakingly hand-crafted in Austin, Texas and comes loaded up with top-shelf features including a set of premium-quality Grover Deluxe Imperial Rotomatic tuning machines and machine-versions of the Teye A-Series bridge and tailpiece. Giving this finely crafted instrument the protection it deserves, the T-Series La Pirata comes protected by a hardshell case.
