Sitka Spruce
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.

At first glance, our parlor guitars look and feel very traditional. However, once you hear this guitar, you will hear a sound that transcends the typical parlor guitar. We do 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, we have 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 Tetons provide rich overtones and a broader frequency of tones, allowing the sound to be full and much louder than you would expect.
