    Re: Are tenor guitars slightly evil?

    Did you say 120 quid?? I’m assuming you & I are on different sides of the pond? :)

    Lovely little arsenal that.

    My regret is probably around my Forster guitar bouzouki, but that is a tale I...

    That’s the spirit brother - welcome indeed to the dark side.

    Re: Hollow Body Electric Tenors

    I sent the YouTube link to my luthier who’s working on my ETG150 at the moment. He said he’s got a mate who’s got a blonde ES125. Now that, I would like to see as a tenor.... *drool*

    Re: Hollow Body Electric Tenors

    I’d get that natural TG50 in a heartbeat! Not many of them about. Maybe get Earnest Instruments to make you up a new scratch plate so as to mount the pickup on it as per his spec.

    Re: How much will it sell for?

    Ah that's nasty :( so sorry to hear that

    My online mate Matt did have one of these exact versions (but he thought it was a TG50) & it went for 3k. I couldn't do it at the time. If you youtube his...

    He’s a respected luthier, and he makes excellent tenor guitars. You can make up your own mind from the videos what you think of them. I don’t really understand why you are desperate for us to confirm...
  18. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    finding a good reasonably priced resonator outside the US/Canada is extremely heard. there's a 1930 triolian for sale in London for £2000.... that's pretty much normal... they rarely appear though....
  19. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    Good point. We all have to be careful not to equate loudness with quality. Unfortunately i do see that a lot in the four string/four course world - probably not helped by some builders pushing the...

  23. Re: New and recent Tenor, best than vintage Martin's and Gibson ?

    i can tell you that my '59 Martin o-18t is huge sound wise. I have a high end modern tenor (Mcilroy) which is lovely, but the martin has age and played-in-ness.

    the O-18t has so much mojo - hard...
  24. Re: What Happened to Brian's Huge Chord List?

    what do you mean by "complex" voicings? Various 9ths, 11ths, various lesser used 7ths that kind of thing? I have my guitar toolkit app for a lot of that.

    Re: Are tenor guitars slightly evil?

    The other question is where next... as alluded to, I’ve always wanted a TG50 or ETG150 (the latter would kill stagewise), but also a National / Dobro (the latter I NEVER see in the UK!)
