Teye Guitars Unveils the Gypsy Arrow

The initial 25 will sport Korina bodies with a "Shipwreck" finish.

Austin, TX (June 1, 2015) -- With the sexy looks and stunning dynamics of the Gypsy Arrow, Austin-based Luthier has delivered a great new take on the Flying V. Flamenco- and rock-guitarist Teye, whose Coyote and Super Coyote were so successful ever since the launch at NAMM 2014, has been dreaming for decades how to improve the concept of the V. The beautiful design, the spectacular construction and the innovative but passive electronics put the GYPSY ARROW in a different dimension.

The initial 25 Limited 2015 Edition Gypsy Arrows are sporting Korina bodies and 25.5’ necks, with exquisitely M.O.P. inlaid ebony fingerboards. They all come in ‘Shipwreck’ hand-rubbed oil-finish, with Teye’s brand-new Mojo circuitry and Master Series design tuner keys, switch tip and volume knobs.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip.

This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
