It is hard to believe it but 10 years are behind us. Teton guitars started shipping in 2010. Here we are in 2020 and many things have changed since then. I am not here to talk about all the changes. All I want to do is talk about the Teton 10th, our 10th anniversary guitar.
My goal with this guitar was to have lots of contrast between light and dark. This is seen all over the guitar. The top is solid sitka spruce contrasted against ebony back and sides. Right down the middle of the ebony back is a natural flame maple wedge. The binding and headstock cap are also flame maple. The Teton logo on the headstock is ebony.
My favorite feature on the guitar is the rosette. It is an ebony/maple ring that moves from light to dark. It really ties the guitar together.
The 10th is an auditorium body size. I chose this because our 5th anniversary was a dreadnought and wanted to have something different. Also, auditoriums have become a very popular body shape in the Teton lineup. I wanted to celebrate that.
The 10th does not have a cutaway but it does have electronics. We have equipped it with the Fishman FLEX preamp and a Fishman Sonicore pickup. So, this thing sounds amazing when plugged in, playing around the campfire, on stage or in studio. In fact, we’re confident it will sound great in any setting.
Wel,l there you have it. The Teton 10th. This is a very limited run of an amazing guitar. Less than 100 were produced. Make sure to check with your local Teton dealers to see if they were lucky enough to get one before they sold out.
Keep playing and making music. Here’s to the next 10 years!
