TOP WOOD

African Mahogany
African Mahogany

African Mahogany is a harder wood than spruce or cedar. Harder woods will have a break-in period where they are brighter when you first get the guitar and, as they are played, they mellow out and you’ll notice more of the deeper tones. Volume levels seem to be on par with spruce tops but with less attack.

At first glance, our parlor guitars look and feel very traditional. However, once you hear this guitar, you will hear a sound that transcends the typical parlor guitar. We do have elements that made parlor guitars one of the most popular models in the early 1900s: the slotted headstock and the 12th fret neck attachment. That said, we have redesigned bracing patterns and top thickness to help the Teton parlors have a unique sound. While retaining some of the “boxy” qualities of early parlor guitars, the Tetons provide rich overtones and a broader frequency of tones, allowing the sound to be full and much louder than you would expect.
