Need a big sound out of a smaller guitar? This right here is the way to go. We call our ¾ size guitar our Range guitar. We took our jumbo body and shrunk it down. We added a rounded back to this little guy and put in Fishman electronics to really make this guy loud. You’d think smaller body guitars would be boxy sounding, but here at Teton Guitars we made sure our smaller body guitar sounded like any of our full-size guitars. Find a dealer and check out our Range guitars to see what we were able to do with a ¾ size guitar.
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.
The auditorium body shape is probably the newest body shape for acoustic guitars. The auditorium takes elements that players love from various other shapes and combines them into a single body. The sound will be slightly different than a dreadnought and will scoop some of the mid range but it maintains the full dreadnought sound. It has a skinnier waist, much like a grand concert. This allows the guitar to rest lower on a player's thigh when sitting down and does not put as much strain on the shoulder. It's not hard to see why auditoriums have gained popularity so quickly.
I love this guitar! It’s one of my favorite sounding guitars and very easy to play. It’s always a great feeling seeing peoples faces light up when they see the guitar and then light up again when they hear it.
