TNAG Presents: The Teuffel Black Birdfish Custom

This week saw the making of a thoroughly enjoyable and especially in-depth episode of TNAG Presents in which we took a deep dive into the brand new Black Birdfish Custom model from esteemed builder and innovative mastermind, Ulrich Teuffel.

In this video, I had the opportunity to explore and work through each variable this sensational instrument comes equipped with in the multitude of interchangeable Tonebars and Pickups Ulri provides.

As well as going through each of these sonically, I went through the entire process of making these changes to the instrument in our Guitar Clinic and was blown away by how intuitive and straight-forward it is to set this guitar up with with the multitude of options at hand.

The icing on the cake however, was to really hear and feel the differences made by these components. With the differing tonal characteristics between the Alpine Maple and Mahogany Bars, a great point of interest from a playing perspective was to feel how these changed the way the guitar felt to interact with.

From the initial response and attack in each note played through to the changes sustain and resonance you feel when the guitar sits against you, the Black Birdfish truly is a remarkable experience as much as an inspiring instrument, and believe me, it really is both of those in abundance.
