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+ electronicsand its sound is great_really solid all around, with no tinny stuff to be found. I paid only $589 and 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 continuing to make this instrument at anywhere near the price they charged. Thank you, Teton.
I purchased this fine instrument at Toms Guitars in Medford ,Oregon after searching and playing several other guitars in the area. After playing the Sts205cent for fifteen minutes it was clear to me that it had the tone and playability that I had been looking for. As a player for plus forty years I can say without doubt, this guitar has the highs, lows and mid range that far exceed any other brand within the price range. Thank you Teton
Great Feedback Teton Cedar Top Acoustic/Electric
This guitar has had great response at open mics and from friends I jam with.
The looks are great and the sound is better. I always have trouble getting it back out of other peoples hands.
Toms guitars in Medford Oregon was an excellent representative of \"Teton\'s\" product line. They let me play everything on the shelf with no pressure. The guitar sold itself and I was prepared to throw down more for the other name brands to find the fulfilling depth that the cedar offers.
I purchased the guitar quite a distance from my hometown and never have returned to the shop. This guitar was not represented in the guitar center in my area and I was pleased to support a small local vendor in Medford.
It has now become my 17 year old boy\'s obsession....much appreciated that the Teton guitar has more appeal than the digital world.
Now comes the unfortunate portion of the story...
I was under the impression that the Fishman pick-up was a good way to go. The sound was great and the tuner was convenient.
My first problem came within a month of purchasing the guitar in 8/2012 which was when the power switch on the mechanism didn\'t turn off thus requiring the battery to need to be removed to avoid draining down. Always a bit of a hassle as the battery always seemed to get left in and die.
The second problem with it was when the clip that held the rotation of the lid/battery access broke it started flopping open/closed.
Now the wires in the harness have popped out and it doesn\'t work.
I called Toms guitars today and they pointed out it had a (2) year warranty.
I had not realized this and take full responsibility for not asking for a replacement. I understand from \"Tom\'s Guitar Shop\" that Teton has excellent customer service.
Response: Mr Brown has been contacted about the electronics.
