    I don't think there was a Sparta tenor. There was a Spartan six-string and there was a Regent tenor.

    Here are the names of the tenors:
    • Beverly
    • Bretton
    • Empire
    • Hollywood
    • Melody
    • Regent

    FWIW the most recent VG Price Guide 2018 says a Beverly tenor would be $750-1000 in excellent condition. There was a Regent sold on Reverb originally listed at $1699. That does not mean it sold for that much.

    There are Zenith and Olympic tenors as well. Check out this registry with photos. http://wiedler.ch/nyepireg/database.html

    The Regent listed on reverb that I see, just says the listing ended and not sold. I think it is very much dependent on condition, since the ones I've seen posted to not typically look in great shape.
