All through August 2019 I was researching small body guitars. I eventually decided I wanted a 12 fret to the body, short scale, all mahogany, parlor guitar. Problem is these things are impossible to find in local guitar stores. I even started calling around in Portland and Eugene. Then, just before labor day, I saw this Teton on Reverb.com for under $300. I jumped on it. Teton is a company out of Idaho. The guitar of course is made in China, but seems to be very high quality. And it is really gorgeous to look at. It has that characteristic mellow tone of a mahogany top guitar, that I really love.
- Solid Mahogany top. Mahogany back and sides.
- 12 fret to the body, parlor size, short 24" scale.
- Slotted headstock.
This guitar is for me to get a lot better at finger picking. That's the goal.
Update: January 2020. Been playing this a lot. Mostly with a thumb pick nd fingers. Really liking it a lot.
