I’ve been playing and owning guitars for 40 years. I just wanted to say that I picked up a STS100CENT-12 a couple days ago at Larry’s Guitar Shop in Longmont, Colorado and couldn’t be happier. I’m a wood worker and also repair, refinish and rebuild guitars as a sideline, and I’m an accomplished musician. The Teton instruments are very well made and have the quality, sound, playability and look of guitars going for much higher prices. This will not be my last Teton. I’m looking at the parlor guitars and hollow bodies next. One suggestion: offer hard shell cases, black and tweed. That would put the icing on the Teton cake.

I have enjoyed my guitar. It has great sound and the action is nice for these old fingers.

Simply the finest acoustic guitar in its price range you will find anywhere! Amazing quality, superb tone, highly playable, great electronics! I’ve owned one of everything; for the money, you won’t find a better instrument! I highly recommend you buy a Teton!

As I was in the music store waiting for them to special order my first guitar, a Teton STA150CENT-AR, because they didn’t carry one in the store, I picked up a STS105NT to pick around on. WOW! When I was told I would know the guitar I had to have when I played it and heard it, I had no idea what that really meant…this guitar sang to me! I wasn’t even sure how playing the guitar would pan out for me at the time and was in the middle of the purchase of a more upscale model but I knew I had to have this guitar! So, I now own 2 Tetons! That was 9 months ago and I believe that having this guitar (and the Auditorium) have helped to keep me inspired to learn and play guitar. The sound of the STS105NT is different than my STA150CENT-AR and very intimate and warm by comparison. I have played it while camping twice and have actually put more time on this guitar. The sound is incredible and I usually practice longer than intended when I’m playing this guitar. I do love both and hats off to Teton for their guitars!

I have been doing acoustic stuff for many years. I’ve played an awful lot of guitars, from 60’s Gibsons to 70’s Martins and this baby holds its own against anything I have played, which is huge! I am a fan now and I am happy to own one!!!!

In November, 2016, I was advised to test and consider a Teton guitar as my first guitar. It is August, 2017, and I can attest to the fact that the advice was spot on! The sound of the Auditorium is richer than the Dreadnought and just under the highs of the Grand Concert. Wonderfully bright and full. The action is pleasant and accurate. The arm rest is comfort I didn’t realize I’d appreciate so much! I’m still learning and this guitar has certainly prevented the testimony I saw so often when first shopping for guitars, that the student lost interest and is now selling. NO chance if they had the pleasure of a Teton! This guitar inspires me to play and learn! Soon, when I’m good enough, I’ll get to share this wonderful sound with people around me!

Visited LaGrande Stereo, LaGrande Oregon. The STS130FMNT caught my eyes when Mike showed me the guitar. One word – beautiful! Great sound. Fit and finish also great. Well done. By the way, I bought it.

Value is the first word that comes to mind when reviewing this guitar. I can no longer find this particular model on the Teton website so I assume it has been discontinued. It features a solid cedar top with solid rosewood back and sides (current models use mahogany). I believe the binding may be walnut or a combination of woods–in any case, gorgeous. It contains the Fishman PRESYS+ electronics and its sound is great–really solid all around, with no tinny stuff to be found. I have been amazed at the guitar I got for the money. To top it all off, the cedar smell when opening the case is to die for. I have to believe this was discontinued because they couldn’t afford to continue making this instrument at anywhere near the price they charged. Thank you, Teton.

Awesome construction. Of all the ukes I own, I am most pleased with this purchase. It is QUIET…and I can practice without disturbing anyone. It also has a head phone jack so I can listen to myself play. The MP3 port lets me listen/play with music put into the port. Love the strap buttons. Free gig case. Fantastic!

I’ve been playing a cheaper Bennet guitar for 11 years and it was alright. I’m not a performer or anything; I just love to play. Then, my friend, who wants to learn to play, picked up a Teton parlour style guitar and, though smaller, its sound kicked the crap out of my 3/4. Well, as luck would have it, I recently broke my old guitar and went shopping for a new Teton. I played every Teton in my price range and they all sounded great but, when I picked this one up, I was instantly in love. The bass and volume are incredible and it doesn’t sacrifice anything on the highs. I was literally blown away and, as I play old songs that I have played dozens of times, they sound new again on this guitar. It is so warm sounding and fits perfectly on your leg as you sit and play.
