Ulrich Teuffel established his company in 1988. In 1995 he came out with a line of conceptional instruments such as the birdfish, tesla and niwa and antonio. Despite their modern appearance these guitars always follow the construction principle of Leo Fender, Ulrich’s idol. His instruments do their job in several museums as well as in the hands of Artists such as David Torn, Kirk Hammett, Bill Gibbons or Hans Zimmer.
Building guitars has been what I had been dreaming of when I was a child. So many years later I haven’t found anything more inspiring than building guitars. It is cultural work at its full value. The HGGS shows me each year more and more how the comunity of guitar makers has built up a remarkable cultural Œuvre.
