    Re: High Quality Short Scale Tenor Guitar?

    Vintage - or modern re-issue - Martin tenors are great, but I've never seen one that was in the 21" scale range. Did they ever make a short scale?

    Re: High Quality Short Scale Tenor Guitar?

    Fletchers are 21" and very high quality. Some of the old small Regals are very good (i.e. the ones with spruce top and mahogany or rosewood back & sides), but theyre often pretty bent out of shape...

    Re: new Healy tenor

    Yeah I'm lucky to live just up the road from him. The pickups were made by Gemini out of Newburgh NY - a small (one-man?) shop from what I gather. P90s in mini-hb casings.

    Re: nylon strung 4 string OM

    Pono makes a baritone "nui" that's roughly Martin 0-sized and 23" scale. It's designed for DGBE but would work well as a nylon string OM.

    Re: New Tenor guitar

    The bridge placement looks fine to me. Something to consider for future builds, though: the luthier I'm working with on a Jazzmaster-style tenor came up with the idea of keeping the original body...

    Re: Single Coil Pickups for Tenor?

    They'll line up as long as the string spacing is the same. A traditional tenor spacing is about the same as a 6 string so typically it will use the middle 4 poles. Joel Eckhaus of Earnest Instruments...

    Heritage tenor

    There's a Les Paul style Heritage tenor up on ebay. Appears to be a one-off. Anyone have any experience with that brand? NFI and I'm not bidding in any case, but thought folks might be interested.

    Re: Down the Tenor Rabbit Hole... (Help)

    Hi and welcome to the rabbit hole - glad you could join us! I give you my opinions as someone who mostly plays GDAE and adjacent tunings (FCGD, GDAD).

    Re: Breedlove, Tenor, Revival OM M

    I would try the strings that are on them first (assuming they aren't already beyond their best by date). If you first play a bit in GDAE and then tune down and compare, you'll have a sense of whether...

    Re: Breedlove, Tenor, Revival OM M

    I think the real scarcity of the tenors combined with their unique features (size & scale) make them retain their value better than a 6-string that has tons of direct competitors in its class. It's a...

    Re: Tenor Baritone Guitar

    I love it - on the neck pickup. Big, deep, clear tone, really brings out the body of the cello range. The bridge pickup doesn't do much for me, kind of anemic and only serves to undercut the boom of...

    Longer than that: I've had mine over 2 years, and I got it used. Looks like they do offer it in a new color though, "desert sand".

    Re: Tenor guitar string help

    Just pointing out that 13-14 pounds of tension per string is extremely low. The strings are going to flop all over the place, and won't drive the cone the way it's designed to. Any guitar that can't...
