    Re: Fender Tenor Tele - First Impressions

    It was just a joke. The 2 Teles I've owned were both just under 9 lbs, but admittedly they were Squiers (Classic Vibes). It was the only thing I didn't like about them. 5 1/2 pounds seems amazing,...

    Re: Fender Tenor Tele - First Impressions

    That's 3 pounds shy of the legal definition of "Telecaster" :)

    Thanks for the review, great demo. Looking forward to getting one when the next batch comes in.

    Re: Looking for a Fender Tenor Tele

    I cancelled my preorder with Chicago Music Exchange. It may have been filled since, but you could try them.

    Maybe. Most of the time I ordered something used from GC that "comes with a case", it didn't.

    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: new Healy tenor

    The painted top is poplar, the rest of the body & neck are walnut. 24" scale, tuned FCGD.

    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: Tenor Guitar Gallery & Sightings

    I'm fortunate to live just up the road from Trevor Healy, a great luthier who makes the occasional tenor; I've posted his 4-string creations before in this thread. Here's his latest: a 00-size,...

    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".

    Astrojet and LP have them on the 10th, but both are discontinued models now I guess.
