Details

The Niwa is Ulrich's take on a classic bolt-on neck design. It's also the first model that Teuffel did with a traditional 6 inline headstock. It's a creation that has inspired many world class guitarists. While the Niwa is well known among aficionados of Teuffel's work, this is a very special instrument.

Ulrich Teuffel deeply believes that a guitar's design should add to a player's creativity by not imposing a mindset on what a guitar "should" sound like, or predispose the player or audience to expect any particular style of music. While there are some who prefer more traditional designs, and those who adore Teuffel's instruments, both sides agree: there's no argument over his incredible craftsmanship and dedication to pure excellence.  

It's important to note that Teuffel's designs are created to a purpose - to be incredibly ergonomic - and to remove any barrier between the player and the creation of music.

The Niwa is a particularly relevant example; it being Ulrich's take on a classic bolt-on neck design. It's also the first model that Teuffel did with a traditional 6 inline headstock. It's a creation that has inspired many world class guitarists.
