Like the pinnacle of the Teton mountain range, this guitar is the pinnacle of the Teton Guitar brand. We took all the things people loved about our STS105NT and upped our game. This guitar has an all solid body. Solid Western Red Cedar for the top and African Mahogany for the back and sides. The companionship of cedar and mahogany is a dream come true to singer/songwriters. The blending of tones produced by both wood types accentuates the human voice.
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.
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.
I’ve been playing guitar for over 50 years. I bought this guitar as an addition to the Eastman ac512ce that I own. This guitar is of the same outstanding quality as my Eastman and was $600 less in price! Both guitars are solid mahogany back and sides. The Eastman has an Engelmann spruce top and the Teton has a western cedar top.
I use Thomastik Plectrum ac110 super light string sets on my instruments and when I put them on this Teton, the sound was soooo mellow, just gorgeous! I use 2 Yamaha THR5’s with a splitter cable to play through. I am a fingerstylist and play arrangements by Atkins, Travis, Yandell, Piburn, etc.
I just started playing this guitar out and the response to the mellowness produced by the instrument has been amazing! I love playing this instrument! Teton guitars are awesome! Keep up the good work!
I also want to give a shout out to Fine Ukes, which is the dealer that I bought the guitar from, for the excellent service I received on this purchase. Thank you!
