    Re: Nasty string buzz on Fender Tele

    I use Rotosound Purples (0.012, 0.016, 0.024, and 0.032) for Chicago tuning on my Eastwood Warren Ellis electric tenor guitar. They sound great and no string buzz. A 0.010 E string on a 23 inch...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Fender no longer has the tenor tele listed on their website. I guess that's it. :crying: Congratulations to everyone who was able to get one. Hopefully Fender will see the light and make some...

    Re: New tenor

    I purchased my BR-60T five years ago for $375 (brand new). Having the price more than double in five years seems steep. My salary hasn't doubled in the last five years. :)

    Re: New tenor

    My Blueridge BR-60T sounds amazing and I'm very happy with it. The current prices though are a bit steep. The Martin O-18T was only available with Mahogany back and sides. I like the sound of...

    Re: 8-string tenor guitar

    That's correct Fox. I contacted Saga and they told me that anything less than 100lb would be fine.

    Re: New tenor

    Since they don't say "Solid Spruce" for the top it's most definitely a laminated top. With the price of the Blueridges now, though, this is a great alternative for someone who wants to try tenor...

    Re: New tenor

    It's just a guess, but if it had a solid top it would probably cost more than $189.99.

    Re: Middle four tuning

    A big "uke" that sounds like a guitar. :mandosmiley: I readily admit that I moved to a tenor guitar tuned DGBE because six strings were too much for this bass player to handle. The funny thing is...

    Re: Middle four tuning

    I did a quick study on the D major chord (D F# A) using ADGB tuning. The standard chord formation for a 6 string would be 0023. This would result in ADAD. The F# is missing. A D major chord could...

    Re: Middle four tuning

    Since I am primarily a bass guitar player I looked at tuning my tenor guitar to EADG (like a bass guitar). The problem was I couldn't form chords that contained all of the necessary notes. On a six...

    Beautiful guitar! Thanks for posting.

    It's also listed on the Fender website in the Telecaster section.

    Re: Unusual Electric Tenor/Mandolin/Uke

    Nice looking instrument but the string spacing at the bridge is inconsistent. The space between the 2 and 3 strings is larger than the space between the 1 and 2 strings and the 3 and 4 strings.

    Re: Fender Tele Tenor at NAMM

    That would make sense from a business perspective, but it would certainly create a lot of ill will towards Fender in the tenor guitar community.

    Re: New Tenor guitar

    It looks good to me but I'm primarily a bass player so I'm used to the bridge being at the end of the body. :mandosmiley:

    Nice job! A 21 inch scale electric tenor is impossible to find, so you might be flooded with requests. Watch out! :mandosmiley:

  24. Re: Is the wait for the Fender Tenor Telecaster worth it?

    I love my Warren Ellis 2P (made in Korea) for playing lead lines. I have big hands so the wide string spacing helps me not hit the wrong string. For strumming though I use my Blueridge BR-60T which...
