Teye Super T series feature a lot of great looking, sounding and very affordable guitars! They are in a class all by itself. Thanks to a slightly different construction, DiMarzio pick-ups, and Teye’s more traditional ‘Mood’ circuitry, these guitars fall into a much more friendly price category.
Rich Robinson and his fellow Black Crowes members have formed the Magpie Salute band, which is currently on tour. This signature guitar is a collaboration between Rich and Teye Guitars. Rich has been a longtime Teye player and this guitar includes his artwork.
The Magpie Salute features Teye’s original MOOD circuit. On its own, it performs complex equalization. In conjunction with the powerful DiMarzio pickups, the MOOD circuit creates a broad palate of tones. This uniquely versatile guitar has plenty of power on tap for those head high Blues and sweetens up beautifully to accompany your Southern harmonies.

Rich’s new band is named ‘Magpie Salute’ and here’s a quote to explain:
The name The Magpie Salute comes from a superstition based in the UK… There are many variations, but the version I’m drawn to is the belief that if you see a Magpie, you would do well to salute it ‘to ward off negativity, or to have a good day.’ The way you salute the Magpie, based on some traditions is to say ‘Good Mornin’ Captain.’ The reason we salute is to show we’re unarmed, or what I like to say is ‘we come in peace.’ The Magpie falls within the Crowe umbrella of species, figuratively and literally. Magpies can be black and white which represents the light and the dark. I figured all of these things touch on many aspects of my life and this experience. (R Robinson)
Everybody is talking about Teye Guitars and all the major guitar magazines have given Teye Guitars rave reviews! They have found their way into the hands of players and artists all over the world. Born in the Netherlands, Teye studied flamenco guitar in Spain before relocating to Austin, Texas. Through his years as a professional musician, Teye kept a running bitch list of problems that frustrated him with guitars he could buy. When it grew too long, he decided the time was right to build himself a guitar to right those wrongs. He became friends with legendary British maker Tony Zemaitis, and today remains inspired by Zemaitis’ work. Yet while Zemaitis guitars are oh-so-English in style, Teye’s adornments lean on his fascination with flamenco.
