Western Red Cedar is a softer wood that has great warmth. Because of the warmth of cedar, it pairs very well with the human voice and is great for singer/songwriters. Cedar naturally amplifies quieter playing styles and is a favorite of fingerpickers.
After we introduced our Grand Concert body shape, it quickly became one of our best selling shapes. We took many of the elements that make the grand concert popular, smaller body and deeper waist, and made a few updates, most notably the increased depth in the sides of the guitar. The small body and waist make the guitar comfortable to play and the increased depth provides more tone and volume. When you have a great sounding guitar that feels so good to play, it is easy to see why the grand concert has done so well for us.
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 keep getting blown away by Teton guitars! (This is my 3rd!!) Just received my STG105-TF (Twelve Fret). From a smaller body guitar, I expected a “thinner” sounding, “quieter” guitar. This guitar has plenty of bass and has twice the volume I was expecting! Nice warm tone and so easy to play. I bought this guitar more as a fingerpicker and, even though it has an 1-11/16″ nut, I personally find it very easy to fingerpick. I plugged this guitar into my Fishman Loud Box Artist acoustic amp and it sounded great! I have played some all solid wood guitars in the past that cost more than twice as much as my Teton that don’t sound as good as this one. BEST bang for your BUCK guitar out there!!! Thank you Teton Guitar!!!
