Teye Coyote NAMM Prototype Copper, 2014

Teye Coyote NAMM Prototype Copper, 2014

This Teye Coyote from 2014 is one of the rarest types of instruments, a trade show prototype built to spark and gauge interest in the concept before production really begins. The classic Gretsch White Falcon was introduced this way, as a showcase at 1954 trade show. That showcase drove a lot of orders, which was a little awkward because Gretsch hadn’t intended it a production item!

The Ibanez JS1000 Joe Satriani model was built from 1994 to 2014 and for much of that time available in the Black Pearl finish seen here. Joe Satriani has been highly influential for decades, dating back to giving Steve Vai and Kirk Hammett lessons and on to his own work as a sideman and successful solo career.
