    Hmm unusual for them to be cheaper in the U.K. $580 for the 40T (£490) .

    I purchased my BR-60T five years ago for $375 (brand new). Having the price more than double in five years seems steep. My salary hasn't doubled in the last five years.

    Tariffs? USA may have tariffs/higher tariffs that are passed on to the consumer.

    I had one. It was a nice guitar. I agree it’s a bit overbuilt. It sounds good and the neck is nice. It is not on the level of a high end tenor, obviously. It handles GDAE well. I also had a Kala, which didn’t, IMO, handle GDAE well, but was very sweet in CGDA, in fact I liked how it sounded in CGDA more than the Blueridge. As soon as I bought my current, much more expensive tenors, I put both the Blueridge and Kala down and soon sold them. Huge difference in tone.

    I wonder how long it will be delayed due to the pandemic?

    I hope not too long, I really have my eye on this. Having missed out on the last batch of Kala tenors in stock, even more so...

    Received the following email from Recording King:

    "This COVID-19 mess has thrown production into a bit of an unpredictable area. Before this all happened they were supposed to have launched early this summer, but I don't believe that is going to be possible now. Unfortunately, all we can do is see how this all pans out, but we are hoping for late Summer."

    I just reached out this morning, too. Late summer seems to be the target:

    Hi Matthew, thanks for reaching out. Our release schedules have been a little jammed by current events, but we’re planning to start shipping these to dealers in late summer. We’ll definitely announce on social media when they are headed to stores so stay tuned!

    I reached out to my local dealer and per their conversation with Recording King the tenor could be out in a couple of months at the earliest and October at the latest.
    Addicted to 4-string instruments - Ukulele was the gateway drug, followed by bass and now onto the hard stuff - tenor guitars and banjos (plus a little mandolin on the side)

    The guitars don’t exist yet in the wild, so it’s unlikely that videos of them will either.

    After watching the MoreThanQuinn video in this forum (Go watch it.),
    I searched a little.

    Now they are showing
    "Estimated ship date: August 28, 2020"

    Strangely, yesterday the Recording King Instagram page said they are planning to release it next week (although they indicated they might not). Great to see it in someone's hands, though, to get a sense of the size and scale. Here's the post: https://www.instagram.com/p/CEma6w5Mb5r/
