Teton Guitars Makes Natural Update to Electrics line

Teton Guitars Makes Natural Update to Electrics Line   Teton Guitars is pleased to announce ten new electric guitar natural wood models. In addition to the aesthetics of the natural woods, the playability and pricing of Teton’s electric guitar line manifest Teton’s genuinely Americana style with a dash of the outdoors to inspire musicians. Teton Guitars will be displaying their new electrics on their front porch (Booth 6402) at The 2018 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, January 25th through 28th, 2018.   Since nearby national parks inspire company employees to get outside, Teton Guitars naturally leaves the Flame Maple, Spalted Maple, Birch, Ebony and Ziricote woods au naturel. Music and a glass of wine are the exception with the wine red highlights of the F144FMWR that add a hot flair to the Flame Maple of the F Series hollow body. Teton feels all models celebrate Teton’s Idaho roots of natural open spaces from Sun Valley and City of Rocks to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. Teton’s Electrics start at $749 MSRP.   If you are heading to NAMM, be sure to stop by the Teton Guitars booth (6402) for information on a free show featuring Teton Artists Lorin Walker Madsen, Toney Rocks, Tyler and Devin Bills and band, Moonlit Kit, on Thursday, January 25th.   About Teton Guitars   Teton Guitars was born and raised 8 years ago next to a river snaking past the wilds of Grand Teton National Park. Inspired by the wind and river melodies of the mountains, Teton Guitars gives voice to the harmonies of an acoustic guitar dancing with a campfire under the stars. No kidding. We’re an outdoorsy bunch of musicians who love a great guitar sound while we’re toastin’ the mallows around the fire. Thus, Teton Guitar’s headquarters is affectionately referred to as “basecamp” which is in Idaho Falls, Idaho. We invite anyone planning a trip this summer to Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Park (our backyard) to swing by and say hello.

Chesbro Music Company is a privately owned American manufacturer and wholesaler of musical instruments, musical instrument accessories and sheet music. Chesbro Music was founded in 1911 and is based in Idaho Falls, Idaho.[1] Chesbro owns Teton Guitars, and has been run by female CEOs since 1953.

Early history[edit]

Horace Chesbro, an 1897 violin studies graduate[2] of the Northern Indiana Normal School in Valparaiso, Indiana, and his brother, Harry, began Chesbro Music Company in a storefront in Idaho Falls, Idaho in 1911. Having manufactured upright pianos in Seattle, Washington,[3][4][5][6] they continued selling pianos and delivered them via horse-drawn wagon to rural Idaho communities.[7]

In 1925, Horace Chesbro started school band programs before public schools began funding and staffing their own music programs.[8] A year later, Chesbro Music was the first to introduce the rural Northwest to recorded music with the wind-up Edison Chippendale Console Disc Phonograph. From the success of selling phonographs, the Chesbro Music Co. began building a three-story addition onto their storefront in Idaho Falls in June 1927.[9] Through the Great Depression, Chesbro Music continued operation by honoring debt or credit with trade and housing employees in-store. By the late 1930s, Chesbro Music began offering jobbing (wholesale) franchises. Billboard reported that Chesbro Music was among the top 20 sheet music jobbers in 1944.[10] Horace's son, Henry Chesbro, took over Chesbro Music Company as president in 1945 and began nationally wholesaling newly introduced LP records.

Female CEOs and Wholesale Expansion[edit]

In 1953, 70-year-old Ella Chesbro, Henry's mother, assumed management of the company due to the death of Henry Chesbro in a plane accident.[1][11][12] Ella expanded jobbing franchises to include independent dealers[13] who sold displays of stock music and folios.[14] Five years later, to accommodate wholesale growth, Chesbro Music expanded their original 1911 store front to a 60,000 square foot warehouse and added a modern facade.[15]Music industry executives and civic officials attended a ribbon-cutting in 1961 in the new building[16] marking the company's 50-year anniversary. Then, with a Stanford degree in economics, 37-year-old Joan Chesbro Griggs, the company's second female CEO,[17] took the reins from her grandmother in 1969.[4] That year, Chesbro Music began attending the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California with a display of their wholesale business[18] and print music library.[19]

Having met Junpei Hoshino, president of Hoshino Gakki, at the 1972 NAMM Show, Joan entered Chesbro Music into a Western United States distributorship of Tama Drums and Ibanez Guitars[7][20][21][22] with Hoshino USA in 1973. She and Gary Bennett, a top tenured employee,[23] then helped Tama and Ibanez gain domestic popularity over the next four decades.[15][24] By the mid-1980s, Chesbro had enlisted membership in the Music Distributors Association (MDA)[25] and was labeled the second largest distributor of sheet music in the United States.[26] In 1999, daughters Vanetta Chesbro Wilson and Tana Jane Stahn, took on co-ownership of Chesbro Music. Distributing the Ibanez brand during the next decade contributed to Chesbro's growth through the 2000s.[27][28] In 2007, Chesbro Music Wholesale was recognized in the industry as one of the 36 "dealer friendly" companies.[29] In 2008, Gary Bennett was recognized for his nearly 35-year contribution to the music industry with a nomination by The Music & Sound Retailer as Representative of the Year.[30] The partnership between Chesbro Music and Hoshino Gakki ended in 2009.

During the transition, the sisters targeted their wholesale business to independent music dealers.[31][32][33] In 2010, Chesbro Music Co. introduced Teton Guitars,[34] a brand of acoustic guitars manufactured in China and named after a prominent mountain range near Chesbro Music Company headquarters. That same year Chesbro Music remained on The Music Trades magazine's list of largest companies in the music industry, ranked by sales, in the U.S.[35] The 2010 NAMM Show History Program also noted that Chesbro had "become one of the largest music wholesalers in the country[36]".

In 2011, Chesbro Music Company marked its 100-year anniversary[37][38] with an open house for local community, civic leaders, and employees. This anniversary was noted by industry trade magazines[32][39] and Chesbro was given a citation of distinction at the 2011 NAMM Show.

Vanetta died November 2013,[36][40] leaving her sister, Tana, to run the "Top 100[41]" company. In 2015 and 2017, industry trade magazines listed Chesbro Music as one of the top 100 leading suppliers in the music industry.[42][43] 2018 marked the 65th anniversary of a woman CEO running Chesbro Music.

Teton STS160ZICENT Acoustic Electric Guitar Solid Sitka Spruce Top Ziricote Back & Sides

Teton STS160ZICENT Acoustic Electric Guitar Solid Sitka Spruce Ziricote 

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.

Guitar Stories: Teton Acoustic Guitar

I did not want another acoustic.

I certainly did not need another guitar.

Between acoustics, electrics, guitars, bases, and ukuleles…my collection sits around 15 various guitars.

Though I play guitar and bass in a local rock and roll bar band, my heart has always been with acoustic guitars. It always will be.

For some reason, though, every acoustic I owned was a dreadnaught. I always preferred their throaty and volume heavy delivery.

As someone who spent about 25 years playing solo acoustic for friends and neighbors, I view the acoustic as much more than just melodic rhythm. When you are all alone, you and your guitar must also be bass and melody and percussion as well. For these reasons, I was always a dreadnaught guy.

With that being said, I did not intend to buy this guitar. I was killing time in the guitar store adjacent to my podiatrist waiting for an appointment.

I picked up the Teton just because it looked so stunning. I played it for a bit, and it sounded stunning.

‘Tone’ is such a subjective and overused term – but this little fella has a magical tone. It’s a small guitar, by my standards anyway. I think it would be called a ‘parlor’ guitar. Further research tells me it is classified as a ‘grand’.

Within about five minutes I fell in love with it. Knowing that I didn’t need anymore guitars, I put it back on the wall. As I did that, I saw the price. $300. It literally sounded to me like an $800 guitar. For $300, I couldn’t afford not to have it.

Then, I found out they were American made. The decision was easy, right after I called my wife and begged her to let me buy yet another guitar. I didn’t have to do this, but she would do the same for me at that price point. We aren’t rich.

I bought this guitar to be my #2, behind my amazing Takamine EAN10C. After about day 3, it became my #1 guitar – the one I play daily.

Oh my, it is SO nice playing a small guitar. Everything about the interface is just easier. Because it has an onboard pre-amp and tuner, it was also immediately integrated into the band environment. It has been a hit with everyone.

I think one of my favorite aspects of this guitar is the price point. It’s something I can take camping or over to a buddy’s house and not worry about it. My beloved Takamine cost me a grand, so I wasn’t comfortable letting it leave the house.

Sadly, now, the Takamine sits on the wall and hardly gets played. That is not to be taken as an indictment against the Takamine, but as an endorsement of the Teton.

This guitar is also just stunning visually. I love the wood and finish choices. Remember, that is what made me pick up the guitar in the first place. As they say, “you eat with your eyes, first!”
