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!

National Style 2-5 Tricone Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, Nickel, 1929

National Style 2-5 Tricone Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, Nickel, 1929

The National Style 2.5 Tricone Squareneck, or ‘Style Two and a Half’ is very close to the Style 2, with just a rose engraving on coverplate’s hand rest making the difference. Introduced in 1927, the Style 2 was the top of the National line, with a  brass body with nickel plating. The wooden components, such as the headstock, are Mahogany, except for the Ebony fingerboard. National Resophonic guitars were a radical, major innovation in musical instrument design.

❌ Sold ❌ Teye La Gitana Electric Gypsy Mahogany Guitar, 2013

Showing clear influences from the rarefied world of Tony Zemaitis, the Teye La Gitana sports hand built Mahogany construction and custom made engraved components. This guitar plays and balances very well. It rings out cleanly and clearly, and the action is very clean and positive; there’s lots of traction when you grab a string.

National Reso-phonic M-1 TriCone Squareneck

The mahogany body National Reso-Phonic M-1 Tricone retains the lush complex trebles of the National Style 1 but the wood body changes the character of the bass response: in short, the bass is huge!
