    Just seemed incongruous that you used the word ‘quid’ but maybe I just didn’t know that Americans use it too!

    Ha! I've not been called incongruous before!

    No Rob, I don't have a pound sterling symbol on my keyboard.

    Americans don't usually say cheers either Rob. Unless of course we're clanking a few pints together. Hold on we typically don't refer to them as pints either.

    Our friends typically aren't our mates as well.

    My friend fox must be influencing me!

    Citizen of the world I am.

    All the best Rob,

    Anyone have experience with Fletcher tenor guitars? He seems to have quite a following.

    I had the prowess of a vixen 40 years ago.

    Tenors are just another instrument in the mandolin family (collect em all!). I was lucky last week and happened to look at Craigslist. As a result, I am now the proud owner of a Steven Parks tenor guitar. I purchased it off the son of the guy it was built for. His dad passed away a few years ago. He plays guitar and knows some of the same local Celtic musicians I know, but was happy to get it into the hands of someone who would appreciate it. Got it at a decent price and it’s a fun instrument. Probably should now lighten my load and get rid of a few excess tenors: Harmony, Stella, and Regal.

    I think "seductive" is the key word here. I've had a stand-offish relationship with my Ozark tenor guitar for a few years, to the point that I tried to get rid of it at one point, but in Germany its hard to raise any interest whatsoever, and so it bounced back and hung patiently on the wall for a long time, just waiting for me to come around to its way of thinking. And recently its started seducing me again, and playing it feels somehow better than before - finger picking or otherwise. However, not to the expense of mandolin, which is presently my main go to instrument. As for my Martin 6 string, my daughter got that for her 21st birthday!
    I sense that the Osark is not a popular choice of Tenor, but boy, the sound is sweet and mellow (I play CGDG and use Thomastik flatwounds). I never felt the same about the two Blueridges, neither of which I kept for very long.

    Yep. They are evil and destructive. And highly addictive, too.

    My tenor seemed so intent on mass-destruction that I restrung it as an OM. This seemed to dampen its desire for world domination.

    Note: since acquiring an actual OM, I will restring it once again. But I make sure to keep it in it's own room. Under lock and key, of course.
