    Absolutely beautiful guitar fox! - just the right amount of bling. Congratulations! You had mentioned that you are playing 6-string more, nice purchase. I'm envious (in a good way).

    I'll never part with my mahogany Harmony baritone uke. I still have the same strings on it from your recommendation last year. Wouldn't mind getting rid of a few laminate tenor guitars though. I'm tenative when it comes to selling tenor guitars - hard to explain.

    I'd be in trouble if I played 6-string guitars. Less expensive (overall) - more to choose from - I'd have a hundred.

    Good luck with the new Blueridge fox!

    It's peculiar. I posted the above using my computer. When I tried to access the link on my phone, the link does not work. Do parsed links not work on the mobile site?

    I ordered one thursday and got it today from thomann here in germany. But they wrote me that they wouldn’t get a new order but maybe they want me to buy one. that worked!
    I have a blond one and it’s pretty nice and fits nicely to my yellow emando and blond telecaster.

    Congratulation MarkusSpiel. Thomann is still showing a Butterscotch Blonde one in stock - available immediately.

    Can you please tell me what year it was made?, is first two numbers of the serial number 19 or 20?

    Enjoy!

    Surprisingly, to me, Thomann is still showing a Butterscotch Blonde as available immediately - 488 €. Their website says can deliver before Christmas: https://www.thomann.de/gb/fender_tenor_tele_mn_btb.htm

    In the US - I see none on Reverb and the eBay sellers are all in Japan.

    A retail priced Lake Placid Blue in Middlesex, UK on eBay as well - £429.

    Happy Holidays All!

    Oscillate Music does a nice job demoing in 5ths and 4ths. Sold them both for a fair price. I enjoyed the video, thought I'd share.

    A good snug fit and well secured inside, and safe from other gear in the van now.

    Link is to Amazon, but there are plenty of other suppliers at competitive prices! Its a good case, and will fit the National resonator tenor guitar as well.

    Finally was able to order one of these cases, thanks so much for the information. If you see this message, could you give a brief overview of what you did to retrofit this for the Tenor Tele? I can see the pictures, looks like you beefed up the under instrument foam. Did you do anything on the sides or for the neck support? If you provided this detail already, my apologies, just not seeing that and again thanks for the pointer!

    Anyone have a particular pedal that really adds something to the experience? I have a pretty basic set up - reverb, delay, looper. I do have a chorus pedal. Not a huge fan of that effect and I have an unusual Jimi Hendrix style Viscous Vibe pedal. Tuned in fifths. Also not really looking for overdrive or distortion. I guess I'm describing the Instant Jazz Comp pedal.

    Just got the recommended case and it fits great. I wouldn't too it from a truck but more than OK for in house humidification in dry months. Thanks a lot for the suggestion kmmando and Huck!

    After a lot of years mucking about I put together a rig that handles most chores. I went with separate clean and crunch rigs that I switch between with an A/B pedal.

    Each rig has it's own effects chain and amp (low watters) with the looper pedal doing the job of a central mixing station. I run each rig through a separate channel (Left or Right of the looper's stereo input/output) which goes into it's own record bus on a Yamaha AW1600 digital recorder. The looper syncs off the BeatBuddy drum pedal via MIDI so everything stays in time. BeatBuddy (drums) output is recorded on their own stereo channel.

    On top of reverb/delay I like to toss in some modulation effects. I use an envelope phaser on the dirty channel that adds a nice wash under the tone. I use a Morley wah pedal that also has a "distortion" circuit with some EQ which I use to beef up things like bass. I got the Korg G3 because of the flanger, but it has some nice settings that do the job of reverb/delay on the clean rig. I do like the Tremvelope - it's a very musical tremolo effect.

    I did package/brand and launch Pigtronix so I got to play with some nice effects along the way and explains whey they are on my pedal boards. There are so many effects pedals out there today that it's a challenge even knowing where to start, but that's a big part of the fun.

    It looks like a few of these Squier tenor teles appeared in various places online in January to not much fanfare. I wonder if they were planning a production but shelved it because they were so slammed with the lockdown demand, but a couple of samples made it stateside.

    https://reverb.com/item/47060421-squier-tenor-tele-red

    Hopefully a full production will happen at some point in the future.

    Do you have a record of more than this one example? I know of this one but not others, would love to get more info on these squires!

    Someone on the Fender Tenor Tele group on Facebook has one that they say they bought from a used shop, can't say for definite that it's not the same one though.

    My dream is for fender to do a gold guard duo sonic reissue as a tenor, alongside a gold guard Fender Mandolin. That body shape seems like a natural fit for the narrow neck:

    Actually looking at it again, I'm almost certain it's the same one. Strange all round.

    Lol, that person who says they have one on the Facebook group is me. I do. It is the one from the Reverb listing you posted. So we are back to only one known to exist….

    Then you're the person to ask.

    Can you tell from how it's made whether or not it is a "real" Squier or could it be something someone put together with some parts and decals? Not sure why someone would clone a Squier, but stranger things have happened.
