Sitka Spruce 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.
After we introduced our Grand Concert body shape, it quickly became one of our best selling shapes. We took many of the elements that make the grand concert popular, smaller body and deeper waist, and made a few updates, most notably the increased depth in the sides of the guitar. The small body and waist make the guitar comfortable to play and the increased depth provides more tone and volume. When you have a great sounding guitar that feels so good to play, it is easy to see why the grand concert has done so well for us.
I love my STG150NT-AR Grand Teton guitar. It has a beautiful tone and deep volume. The body shape and the sides make it very comfortable to play. I’ve also noticed that it stays in tune with very little adjustment having to be made. The owner of the music shop where I’m taking lessons, who owns several guitars, liked my guitar so much that he immediately bought the same guitar after seeing and playing mine. Besides playing it at his performances, he has the guitar on display in his office.
