    Default New Tenor Owner *with a video!

    Hey all,
    I recently picked up the 1935 Gibson TG00 from the ads here. I had been looking for one for some time & had played quite a few, including some vintage Martins & a couple old Gibsons. None of the Martins I played had any depth to the sound.?. One of the Gibsons sounded pretty good but I just didn't like look & decided to hold off.
    Luckily I did!! This little box has a HUGE voice, even in standard C tuning. I put some John Pearse strings & tuned it like an octave mandolin & it growls!

    This is a video of the first (of hopefully MANY) song I have written on it.

    Nice stuff. Lovely song, great singing, and a terrific tenor well played.

    Funny you mention the old Martins. I played an old Martin tenor at Elderly, and I have to say that the Blueridge br40 and br60 that I played there sounded so much better. It wasn't even close. So now I'm shopping for a Blueridge tenor. (The Breedlove tenor looks and sounds nice, but I don't have $4000 to spend.)

    P.S. that Gibson tg00 sounds great!
    Never say "bouzouki" to a TSA agent...

    The John Pearse strings tuned GDAE do sound great (thanks to your playing). Do you remember the string sizes? .11 to .40?
