Teuffel Birdfish Spring & Fall w/Red Alder & Alpine Maple Tone Bars

Brand New

Description & Specs

Ulrich describes the double set of tone bars on his ONE guitar as ‘Autumn’ and ‘Spring’ or as the ‘pessimistic’ and ‘optimistic’. Having witnessed and experienced big life changes, personal losses and struggles during the past year he said that all of it influenced him in his design process.

For Ulrich Po3 has presented the opportunity to step out of his comfort zone of his usual unusual production models. Even though a Birdfish model by design, this guitar is very different and one-of-a-kind. Ulrich is allowing himself a new playfulness and is experimenting with new or re-discovered techniques and media. For the first time in over 30 years Ulrich picked up the paintbrush to hand-decorate the tone bars in ways not seen before, and perhaps to not be seen again... Bravely forging ahead with an acid wash the nickel parts usually polished to great shine were changed.

"Not relic-ed but really like a forgotten guitar" says Ulrich about the nickel parts that now have an outstanding coloring with blues and golds.  

This superb guitar remains true to his style in its clear and clean lines. Beyond that, the two sets of tone bars have a unique beauty and great visual appeal, painted with a leaf-like pattern. The ‘Autumn’ set impresses with amber-like depth and beautiful coloring, the painted and lacquered tone bars look like fallen leaves were enclosed in glass. The ‘Spring’ set reminds of a walk through a spring wood (Michael called it ‘Spring in Central Park’) with its healthy, crisp green and yellow coloring. It certainly is another masterpiece by this gifted designer and guitarmaker.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas.
