The 110 series are the perfect guitars for players who are searching for a great looking guitar that uses wood that is sustainable. Please keep in mind that Teton Guitars uses only responsibly sourced, sustainable woods. Ovangkol is one of the most sustainable option that we offer. Combining ovangkol with a solid sitka spruce top makes this guitar a real stand out. The two woods are set off by a maple binding that brings the guitar together. The clear, crisp sound of the 110 series has become a favorite of many Teton fans and the series has become one of our top sellers.
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 auditorium body shape is probably the newest body shape for acoustic guitars. The auditorium takes elements that players love from various other shapes and combines them into a single body. The sound will be slightly different than a dreadnought and will scoop some of the mid range but it maintains the full dreadnought sound. It has a skinnier waist, much like a grand concert. This allows the guitar to rest lower on a player's thigh when sitting down and does not put as much strain on the shoulder. It's not hard to see why auditoriums have gained popularity so quickly.
