By using certain methods of construction as well as specific materials, Teye builds his guitars as practically broadband instruments. Then, with his highly original and unique on-board passive electronics, you can shape the sound to your needs. No pre-amps, no batteries, all passive and analog.


Learn your Teye (the University)

Few guitarists today use the controls on their guitar. Instead, they rely on pedals to get their sounds. Agreed, 99% of guitar controls aren’t that great. But on the Teyes, the controls are …revolutionary great! And you should learn to work them, so that you can tap into this vast sonic potential. You can watch some demos HERE.

— Volume controls

Teye has applied 1930’s hifi-knowledge to his volume controls, fine-tuning the technology for the electric guitar. When you turn your volume down, instead of a listless sound common to 99% of electric guitar volume knobs, you dial thru all these incredibly musical stages of gain. Has to be heard to be believed.

One customer claimed that he heard shades of Humbuckers, Mini-humbuckers, P-90s, Fenders, just by using the volume knobs and his picking style.

— Tone control

GPM calls it ‘a boldly voiced and very usable Tone control’. Teye’s Tone knob does not simply pull a blanket over your sound; it re-positions the frequency peak. You will actually use this Tone control, to tame highs, to play with a cocked-wah sound, or to …imitate a Fuzz-Face pedal…

— The Analog Spectrum Modeller: Teye’s MOJO-control

A re-assignment of coils, combined with some very clever filtering, this circuit actually uses a state-of-the-art, custom-made potentiometer, that clicks the electronics out of the signal path when the button is turned to ’10’. This is the Secret Weapon inside your Teye-guitar, that allows you to conjure up dozens of famous/classic electric guitar sounds, and then a bunch of unknowns too.

Remember, the MOJO is very inter-active with the volume controls, and the filtering will remove more or less gain depending on the volume control position.

And the best part: it is all totally analog, all totally passive, no pre-amps, no batteries, no tricks…

— (Mood knob)

The fore-runner to Teye’s MOJO control. Still a very useful control.

For Teye’s switch positions, see below.

The Teye-way of switching his humbucking pick-ups:

2-Humbucker guitars:

  • Switch position 5 (up) – Neck pick-up
  • 4 – Neck and Bridge pickup out-of-phase (the ‘Peter Green’ sound)
  • 3 (middle) – Neck and Bridge pickups normal
  • 2 – Bridge pickup plus tapped Neck pickup
  • 1 (down) – Bridge pickup

3-Humbucker guitars:

  • Switch position 5 (up) – Neck pick-up
  • 4 – Neck and Bridge pickup out-of-phase (the ‘Peter Green’ sound)
  • 3 (middle) – Neck and Bridge pickups normal
  • 2 – Bridge plus Middle pickup
  • 1 (down) – Bridge pickup
    +++Plus+++
  • position 2 with Bridge volume rolled to zero – Middle pickup alone
  • In between positions 2 and 3 – All three pickups
