    Its reputation is that it is the best ever... Is-it possible ?

    And Follow the explanation of the inventor "Luthier" !


    Is-it possible that it was so much better that our current vintage old references ?

    Nigel has been pretty active in this forum in the past. You could always reach out to him: https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/m...6233-nkforster

    But be forewarned: his session king tenor guitars are well above your stated budget. The two most recent ones to be sold used on Reverb were $3300-$3900.

    He’s a respected luthier, and he makes excellent tenor guitars. You can make up your own mind from the videos what you think of them. I don’t really understand why you are desperate for us to confirm what is immediately apparent - Nigel makes amazing instruments. His reputation and marketing skills precede him! He’s a good man.
    Other makers make excellent high end tenor guitars too - Taran is another UK based (Yes Nigel is now in Australia) maker whom I’d approach about making one if I wanted to be a single man ha ha. Prices may be higher in Rory’s workshop - his six string guitars are over 10,000 GBP on the second hand market!

    Irish luthier Frank Tate makes tenor guitars as well, I'd love to have him make me a tenor guitar one day!
