At first glance, Teton parlor guitars look and feel very traditional. However, once you hear this guitar, you will hear a sound that transcends the typical parlor guitar. They 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, they 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.
