Made in the USA by Master Luthier Tim Teel
Teel Guitar Works - prototype
From the ground up, this new ultra-thin acoustic electric guitar is designed for ultimate comfort, playability and versatility. Based on a classic guitar profile with a newly designed cutaway, the 24.750” scale length provides a familiar foundation. The innovative body creation is unique in that its carved from a block of wood including all internal bracing and structural supports. The internal carving also uses a unique texture that eliminates standing sounds waves yielding a rich yet powerful acoustic tone.
The soundboard uses a traditional X brace but modified to optimize the thin body design. Top bracing is tone tensioned to add stability and tonal projection. Excellent choice for all venues from practicing and writing on the couch to the coffee shop, bars all the way to the stadium!

I just wanted to let you know that the ultra-thin body electric guitar you sold me is one of my favorites! Wow! It's a pleasant mix of my many acoustic guitars and my Gibson Les Paul. I recently purchased a Roland amp to accompany my ultra-thin. I added some chorus and a little reverb and it felt like I was in an orchestra. It's really that great. Problem now is balancing my guitar playing time with my wife! I would not hesitate to own another one of these guitars which is why I bought the second one. Just a great guitar really that I am proud to own. Well done! - Mark P. of Michigan
