Acoustic Guitar – 2019 Model
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.
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…
This is by far the best acoustic bass I have played. I spent the last 2 months going into shops and guitar centers looking for an acoustic bass and trying them out. I even bought a few only to return them due to being poorly manufactured or not having enough resonance. I gave it one more try after seeing the ONE video for this model on YouTube and made the purchase. My face has never been happier after opening this for the first time and hearing the rich tone of this bass. The setup came perfectly and I even originally planned to replace the bronze strings, However, I was so amazed by the tone that I’ve decided to keep them. This is an outstanding bass and this is the quality that every musician should look for in an instrument. This acoustic bass is an instrument to keep for a lifetime. I couldn’t be happier. There needs to be more publication about this brand and model.
Thank you, Teton. You have earned a loyal customer.
Have a friend who has this beautiful $2,000 guitar that plays awesome and sounds great. I started searching for a lower dollar version and went to Guitar Center and started plucking around on some Martin, Taylor, Seagull, Gibson – whatever they had there. As luck would have it, my local shop, Brightwood Music in Nederland, carried the Teton. Doug set me up in a room with half a dozen different Teton Guitars. I was totally impressed by the sound, the sustain and ring, if that is the right term. Played the dreadnaught and the grand concert styles and, for me, absolutely loved the feel of the grand concert. To wrap this up, absolutely love this guitar. The maple back is stunning and, if nothing else, is a joy to look at. But the playability and the sound is truly impressive. Certainly has been inspiring me to become a better guitarist, so what more can you ask of a guitar.
I am leaving this bass in the bedroom and never plugging it into an amp again. While it sounds nice and woody unplugged, all its underlying faults come to life plugged in. Horrible overtones in the mid register and stone dead in the water on the e and a strings.Got rid of the factory strings with a set of Earthwoods….no change. (Is there a p set for 32″ scale?) Fit and finish: 7 out of 10 wood binding thickneses varied. Got this using a credit I had to use at a music shop in NorCal. Really should have spent more time playing in the store. Went on the fact that I love my Teton STP 180 Parlor
