    Default Raffaele Tieri tenor on eBay

    It's not marked, but judging from a very similar instrument at Lowell Levinger's site I'm confident that this is a Raffaele Tieri tenor guitar:

    I gave some thought to buying it but the last thing I need right now is another project. I suppose $203 isn't bad if you're willing to devote four or five times that much toward getting it back in shape.

    Looks like it originally had a pin bridge and the floating saddle and tailpiece were added later, yes? Hard to tell much from such lousy photos.

    Well, not too surprisingly, this one wound up with Banana. Turns out it's a plectrum guitar (26" scale). Even after whatever it took to fix it up, he stands to make a pretty healthy ROI if he gets his asking price...
