Tenua #3

From powerfully distorted to delicate acoustic sounds – a wide range of tones are created by this guitar. The piezo elements in the bridges combined with a high definition piezo preamp from RichterEE complement the sound spectrum of the Häussel pickups. With its elegant and unobtrusive plum wood top, the body offers a convincing platform for the royal white ebony fingerboard to shine with its wild and spectacular grain. The black hardware continues the dark lines of the fingerboard and rounds out the harmonious appearance. An eye-catcher on the back, besides the angularly arranged grain of the two-piece swamp ash body, is undoubtedly the cover of the electronics cavity with its engravings. The solid metal has been subjected to a special thermal treatment to create this unique structure. A one-piece neck made of mahogany contributes to the outstanding sound of the guitar in addition to its visual appeal.

My Tenua from odem Guitars is pure inspiration. With her great tone,  her stunning design and her outstanding built quality the tenua gives me everything I need to do what I love. To make music that inspire and moves. It is a pleasure to play a unique odem Guitar. And I will play it a lot!
