  1. Re: Looking for a Tenor recommendation? Try a Blue Ridge BR-40TCE

    Love my Blueridge tenor. I tune mine DGBE. They have gone up in price but still worth it.

    No it comes with an under saddle pick up. The jjb are glued inside the guitar at the bridge plate. Similar to K&K but less pricey. They sound great. A lot of folks use them on Ukes also.

    The BR 40 TCE has jumped up to what $800-$900 now. You're better off finding a used BR40-T and putting in the JJB pickups for $29

    Re: Why the price jump/scarcity on Blueridge tenors?

    Just an update. I installed the JJB PPS-220 into my Blueridge tenor and it sounds great.

    Re: Tenor guitar newbie

    Disregard the string tension chart on my last post. That's for my Plectrum banjo that I also tune DGBE. Somehow I can't figure out how to delete it from my post.

    Re: Tenor guitar newbie

    It's really up to you. How do they feel? How do they sound? IMO those would be on the light side but the chart I posted (from Mike Soares) is just a suggestion. I've been told that about 20lbs...

    Re: Tenor Guitar, Ukelele or?

    If you are just strumming chords while singing ukulele (Baritone or tenor) will be perfect for you. Of course you can do more than just strum chords on a uke. (See Jake Shimabakuro, James hill,...

    Re: Tenor uke tuned as a tenor guitar

    So the Aquila 31U strings work on a tenor uke even though they are made for concert uke?
    I'd be worried they'd be too short no?

    Re: Ukulele tuning question

    Tune to standard baritone tuning DGBE and capo 2nd fret.
    That is if I understand your question correctly.
    OR
    Learn your closed chord shapes and play up or down the neck to suit your voice.

    Yeah, I think in UK, Ozark and Ashbury are available.
    In USA it seems Goldtone or Blueridge are the only inexpensive ones.
