Tenor guitars are becoming more popular, after almost vanishing in recent years. They can be played like a tenor banjo or a bouzouki, and are usually tuned in a similar fashion, GDAE, although CGDA is also very successful.
They supply a solid, chunky backing part that is distinctive and clear amongst other instruments, and wonderfully "different" when played solo. Smaller and shorter than a standard guitar, very comfortable to play.
Sapele back and sides, select Western Red Cedar top, one piece Honduras Mahogany neck, Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, chrome plated Gotoh tuners, Rosewood bindings and black and white purfling on front. Hiscox Liteflite case included.
