This Teye Emperor La Mora increased my level of coolness by 45% for the duration of my playing session. I'm back to being uncool now that I had to put it down, but it's easy to feel like you're the coolest person in the world when you're playing a guitar that sounds and looks this luxurious. Let's dive in and see what gives this Emperor such a powerful groove! This serial is quite dynamic and touch-sensitive, with detailed midrange and responsive trebles. The korina body gives this guitar a bright, lively character, and the metal plates add in a little bit of metallic high-end shimmer (although no one is going to mistake this guitar for a Travis Bean). The bridge position has a forceful, midrange-heavy voice, and the top end can chime or snarl depending on your attack. The neck pickup is warmer, with more low midrange and a rounder attack. As if that wasn't enough, this guitar has a five-way switch, and the in-between positions have all sorts of thinner, more nasal tones on tap! Anyone looking for a great-sounding guitar that's also a work of art will love this Teye!
