Teton Parlor Guitar Solid Spruce Top w/Ebony Back & Sides
At first glance, the Teton parlor guitar looks and feels very traditional. However, once you hear this guitar, you will hear a sound that transcends the typical parlor guitar. They 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, it has 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 Teton parlor provides rich overtones and a broader frequency of tones, allowing the sound to be full and much louder than you would expect.
The solid Sitka Spruce top 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.
