• Plays the STEU102T Solid Body Electric Teton Ukulele
• From Visalia, California
“Teton Guitars are all about quality, sound and an affordable price. First time playing one of the acoustic ukuleles, I fell in love. The sound and playability is remarkable. I could be playing it all day. The electric solid body ukuleles are mind blowing. I’ve never heard of an electric solid body ukulele until I heard and played theirs. It has been my main one when I perform my shows. The look catches people’s attention. It sounds awesome live and in the studio. Teton ukuleles are the way to go. Thank you Teton for making amazing ukuleles. Saludos!”
