    This really is no fun at all.

    This would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

    The good news is the overpriced Tenor Teles are not selling.

    You could be in luck Kevin, just seen an eBay UK ad from a Bournmouth shop quoting delivery in 3 days https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274265082962?ul_noapp=true

    Just an observation, on Reverb.

    In the US the guitar was listed/marketed as a solid body electric "Tenor Tele".

    In the UK the three that I has seen for sale are marketed as "Tenor Telecaster" in the tenor guitar section.

    No big deal - just something that stood out to me.

    Howdy folks! Mine arrived yesterday (in Ireland) from Thomann

    A couple of irish suppliers are advertising them too so looks like theyve well and truly hit Europe now!

    Can anyone give any advise in how to string it for GDAE? The strings it came with dont seem to be able to carry that tuning (the top and bottom ones anyway!)

    One option on GDAE strings:
    11p-18w-28w-42w ~ 65lbs. About 16lbs. per string.

    Congrats on your new guitar.

    Thanks Huck!

    Will give it a go, pretty much in line with my short scale tenor banjo strings!

    You're welcome - if you can't find a 18w you can use a 17p.

    Most tenor banjo sets won’t have a heavy enough G string, best to use guitar singles or use a banjo set with and just buy a 42 G string.

    Ernie Ball has a wound 18 single you can get. Try Just Strings or Strings and Beyond.
    There's nothing better than first-hand experience.

    Yep, intention would be to use something like these and just swap out the g string:

    Yes but Eagle sell the puretone strings as singles anyway, I use them for every steel string I use.
    They do wound strings in .16 upwards.

    Hey guys,

    Im desperately looking for one of these in Fiesta Red, i've pre ordered from probably a dozen different sites, and have actually placed 3 orders only for them to be cancelled days later due to the fact they never had it in stock. Been waiting months and months for this instrument, I haven't been able to play live or rehearse and have had to put the band on hold because I don't have an electric tenor to play at the moment. My last two tenors were shoddy, so the Fender is really my only option at this time. If anyone can point me in the right direction.

    Here is a red one that is allegedly in stock at time of posting here. No financial interest - just trying to help a brother out!

    I tried purchasing from them. That was the third or fourth time I actually purchased one and it ended up cancelled because they made a mistake, thats the second time its happened with zzounds, and it turned out that the second time I tried to purchase from them it actually was in stock and they cancelled my order by mistake, then they sold it to someone else without considering holding it.

    Not the color your looking for but Walmart says they have one left:

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Squier-Al...onde/862196428

    Also Ebay has two:

    https://www.ebay.com/i/174209798977?...algv%3DDefault

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fender-Alte...cAAOSwtxdeXsz2

    A simple Google search found these.

    I've never had an Ebay order cancelled.
