This week's unusual instrument is a c1934 Prairie State (Larson Brothers) Four String Guitar. 25 scale length could be tuned as a plectrum, tenor or like the bottom four strings of a regular guitar. Patented laminated x-bracing and internal metal support rods. Brazilian rosewood back and sides. Great tone. I play a couple things in plectrum tuning, CGBD, and one thing tuned CFAD like the bottom four strings of a regular guitar tuned down a whole step.
