Acoustic Guitar – 2019 Model
Like bright colored leaves and a crisp autumn day, the combination of spruce and mahogany is perfection. The woods not only complement each other aesthetically, they also work together to create a great sound with lots of wonderful overtones. This companionship of woods together with a grand concert body provide a focused tone, that is rich with mid-range frequencies, which are crucial for cutting through a mix of instruments.
I went to our local music store and decided to look for an acoustic guitar to use for church. I tried every guitar there and most of them were Fender’s, a few Takamine guitars and a Washburn. Tried them all and my budget was about $400.00 I really wanted an electric acoustic and, frankly, I have never purchased a guitar before and have just the basic skills. My first love is drums but for the last two years I have been spending a lot of time with my guitar that was given to me years ago which is a Madeira by Guild. So, I played pretty much everything in the music store and I really liked the ones that were about $1500 but out of my price range. I was settling on a Takamine that I felt most comfortable with which was only about $200. Then, just as I was about to walk away because I am not impulsive, I notice this Teton which was the only one in the store. It was used with a bit of a mar or scratch and I picked it up and fell in love with it. I got it for $350 and I am having them install a pickup for it. My gosh, it blew me away and I fell in love with the feel, the look and the sound of it. Can’t wait to pick it up in a couple days.
