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.
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.
Fishman's PRESYS+ preamp is designed to make your Teton guitar sound as great amplified as it does when you play it acoustically. The PRESYS+ has a three band EQ that allows you to fine-tune your tone and adapt to any situation you are in. The PRESYS+ also has Notch, Brilliance and Phase adjustments. This preamp is paired with a Fishman Sonicore pickup to reproduce your amazing natural Teton tone when plugging in.
Outstanding sound, resonance and construction. I have been playing acoustic guitars for +50 years and am pleased with the Teton STG150CENT. I spent several hours in a sound room at my local music store before I decided on the 150. It has deep, resonant sound, very pleasing tone. In fact, I just purchased it yesterday noon, practiced a little with it yesterday and played at church services last night where I got a standing ovation. Outstanding sound!! I purchased a Martin DX1 about 5 years ago and have been disappointed by it. After about 4 years, it began cracking from the top/side joint into the body about 3″. I found the nearest guitar repairman and he finally satisfactorily repaired it. My dealer claimed that I had not cared for it, allowing it dry due to very low humidity. I treat all three of my guitars with care and have NEVER had that problem with any of the other two which are in the same environment as the Martin. Bottom Line: Teton makes a great guitar.
