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.
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 have been playing guitars since 1970 and I have had a couple of accoustic Martins, a DM and a cutaway, but this Teton grand concert is a fantastic musical instrument for both picking and strumming and singing. This guitar with its smooth and easy action (string to fret distance) is very easy on the chording hand, especially for an old man who still rocks. This Teton grand concert is the best guitar I have ever played.
I LOVE this guitar! I love the playability and tone from this. It had proper fret dressing, no jagged edges, and has an awesome sound unplugged and plugged in. I looked at the Taylor GS Mini (I had owned one previously) and this one blew it out of the water in tone and playability.
