Teton Guitars auctioning off guitar for Breast Cancer Awareness

Teton Guitars, a subsidiary of Chesbro Music, is auctioning off one of its models this month to help raise awareness about breast cancer. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so this is the time of year you see a lot of efforts like this.

The auction, for a STF105CENT, is on eBay, and you can find it by clicking here. The STG105CENT is Teton Guitars’ best-selling acoustic-electric. It features a solid western red cedar top with layered mahogany back and sides. It includes Fishman electronics with its grand concert body shape and has a 25.5” scale length. The front of the guitar has a pink ribbon painted on it with a finish applied over the paint. The ribbon was hand-painted by  Jeremy Webster, host of Teton Guitars’s “Teton TV” YouTube channel, and was applied to mask a slight cosmetic irregularity in the wood, which rendered it “B” stock. The classic Teton sound, structure, and playability are not compromised The guitar comes with a Teton Guitars branded gig bag.

Every penny the auction raises (minus eBay fees) will be donated to the Teton Cancer Institute to help them provide treatment to those who are unable to afford it. The auction ends next Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 7 MDT.
