    my first electric that - the Eastwood Classic. Have a Warren Ellis but no decent pics and they are fairly common for a tenor anyway!

    Bob ... It was your youtube playing that great guitar that got me to purchase a '37 Epi-Triumph. Wonderful guitar. Thank you.

    Mine are Herb Taylor archtop tenors. I love his archtops, they have a unique, beautiful, powerful tone, and play great. His neck attachment is smart. I took the neck off just to see how to do it, and its simple and quick to do. I could reset the neck myself in thirty or so minutes if it ever needs it. It has a flat back and the top is pressed. I own two, #174 and #205. 174 is western red cedar and juniper. Its very lightweight, plays loudly with a light touch and growls on the low notes. A video of it is on Herbs site. #205 is sitka spruce and shedua. Its much heavier, and requires one to dig in harder to get a loud sound, compared to 174. Its a rounder tone than 174, perhaps a more trad guitar tone. I switch back and forth as far as which one I prefer. They sound a lot different. Herb is always making something different, construction wise and tone wise. Id love to get one of his stick through tenors.

    Yes myLord it’s an Emerald carbon fiber x30 tenor & it is delish!!! It comes up on their August 7th 2020 Shipping video. A very well balanced and rich sounding guitar. The brief to Emerald was to make me a guitar to compete in the Fleadh & it doesn’t disappoint. I eager to hit the local sessions with it, all in good time. Interestingly it came in €2000 under what I had budgeted for.

    Yes they are...and the back is nicely carved arched-style. The 80-something gentleman who sold it to me runs a multi-generation plating business in Brooklyn. They were downstairs in the same building at that time and did the plating work for Epiphone. This beauty was his (late) brother's and he himself has a tenor which they each received as gifts from Orphie.
