Overview

  • Acoustic Guitar

  • Bass

Like the rolling thunder this acoustic bass has some rumble. We took our Jumbo size body and decided to make it into a short scale bass guitar. But don’t let the smaller than average body fool you, this bass has bass. This thing thumps acoustically, and the addition of Fishman electronics you know it will bring the low end when you have it amplified. This bass sounds amazing and looks amazing. The flame maple on the back and sides are hot. It looks like that thunder storm must have had a few lightning strikes that started a fire, because it has flame.

TOP WOOD

Sitka Spruce
Sitka Spruce

Sitka Spruce is the most well-rounded tone wood and is used on more guitar tops than any other wood. This is due to the tonal qualities and sonic projection of spruce. It has a nice even tone and does not accentuate any frequency above another in an overpowering way. Spruce also has a strong attack and does not get muddy at high volumes. This makes it a very versatile wood and makes those players with soft touches sound great and people playing with other instruments cut through the mix.

The Teton Bass is a short scale acoustic bass. We used our jumbo body and added a bass neck and scale length. This allowed the guitar to be more comfortable to hold and also have a great response to the low frequencies.

ELECTRONICS

Fishman ISYS+
Fishman ISYS+

The Fishman ISYS+ works to complement the natural acoustic tone of your Teton guitar when you need to amplify it. This preamp, paired with the Fishman Sonicore pickup, will reproduce all the natural sonic qualities of your already amazing sounding Teton. The ISYS+ has bass and treble controls to help dial in your tone. With the built-in-tuner, you will always sound your best when playing amplified or acoustically.

I’ve been on the prowl for an acoustic bass for a while and had narrowed my search to one specific big-name brand and model. I hadn’t pulled the trigger when I chanced upon this Teton model hanging in a local shop. How lucky – I spent less than 1/3 the cost of the bass I had been planning on purchasing, without sacrificing one iota in workmanship, playability, tone, and aesthetics. I can’t say enough good things about this bass – GREAT tone, PERFECT set-up out the door, GORGEOUS woods, and INCREDIBLE, THUNDEROUS low-end when amplified. This is my first Teton. I doubt it will be my last. Well done. Extremely well done…
