    I hope to try a tele tenor when they come out to compare with
  4. Re: Is the wait for the Fender Tenor Telecaster worth it?

    Well I'm gonna get me classic fixed. After that... May not keep. It looks great. Sounds cool but I just got the WE 2P today and I adore it. I get the point re strumming but what I realise is how...
  5. Re: Is the wait for the Fender Tenor Telecaster worth it?

  8. Re: Ordered a custom tenor from Davy Stuart

    Yes, when double strung it's a mandocello. Am aware of the eastman cello and the eastwood bari tenor. I want an acoustic version of the eastwood instrument - I play fingerstyle on tenor so although I...
  9. Re: Ordered a custom tenor from Davy Stuart

    I used to have a 20" tenor. In GDAE it wasn't the best. Time will tell! If not there's nothing wrong with CGDA really.
