    That's not a TG. It's a Harmony baritone uke.

    Spot on Ambrosepottie I'd only watched it go by in the vid and wouldn't know a baritone uke from a mule................ I'd assumed he's the tenor banjo player and it was a TG.
    Here's a frame grab and crop from the vid for anyone who's keen.

    Bob Shane of the Kingston Trio also played tenor and ukulele before taking up six-string. Although Nick had a Martin 0-18T signature model in his honor, on the earliest recordings, he actually used a 0-17T all-mahogany. The same model was played by Rabon Delmore of the Delmore Brothers.

    Following a name mentioned by Aron Embry in an NPR show posted by Ed Goist I followed up Diana Jones who he says does all her music on tenor guitar (called Rosebud)

    She does play 6 string guitar too, but he I think means her writing/composing or something like that.

    Thats nice, a unique voice. She is playing a sixstring in 90% the featured video on her website. There are at least two or three tenors in the room though.

    What Charles said.

    PS. I've pursued this theme a bit and looked at a number of her videos. Very few tenor sightings in them.

    There's some nice stuff on her FB page which should give you more of an insight into her work.

    Checking out some of her track credits when playing with other people she seems to be listed as TG, but if she had Aron Embry playing for her recently I suppose she'd be unlikely to double up on that.

    Do you guys know Heather Maloney? She plays tenor guitar on some of her songs. I found a picture of her holding a blueridge tenor quite by accident while scoping out tickets for a different show at the Bull Run restaurant in Shirley, MA. I've since checked out her music and think she is a great songwriter and performer. She has a new album coming out in March.

    Now there's a vision of loveliness!

    Looks like a late 30's Gibson TG-00. Just about the best tenor flat top you can get with that full size body.

    Hoagy Carmichael in To Have and Have Not, with Bogey and Bacall. The guy right behind Hoagy is playing tenor, he plays mandolin later on in the film.

    Got to give the people the eye candy to lure them in Charles



    ("go advanced" click on the mini YouTube icon and add just the code. this one would be; 9C1vJ2Z8aI0 )

    As for the vid I've an ex (still good friends) who looked like Lauren Bacall so it's always a bit unnerving watching her in movies. Schmokin' though

    This came as a surprise when I looked up Pete Martin on Youse Tube ... Pete isn't in this particular cut but - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZGvTunaLCU An interesting take on Texas Swing. I don't recall seeing this on this particular thread.

    I hadn't seen this before and wish I knew how to imbed the video in the posting. Sorry - only a link however, if the page comes out right there are five or six other Tenor sightings on the page. So it isn't all bad.

    Absolutely great clip!

    I believe that he might be playing a vega 'tenor lute mandocello'

    One was sold at folkways music recently - here is their description:

    1920 Vega 403 Mandocello
    Serial # 37926. Imagine plucking the strings of a piano with a guitar pick. That’s about as close as we’ll be able to take you in our efforts to describe the tone of this “cylinder-back” Vega Lute Mandocello. These interesting instruments were built in the late 1910’s into the mid 1920’s by the Vega Company of Boston. The light build, folded flat top, and extra air volume afforded by the back’s rump add up to an airy and resonant voice, with notes that sustain forever. It’s a very difficult instrument set down. The ‘cello features a guitar-sized neck and body, with 26” scale, 1-9/16” nut, and 14.5” width across its lower bout. Spruce top, figured maple back and sides, inlaid celluloid pickguard, rosewood fingerboad and Waverley strip tuners. Crack-free body, however there is one cracked and repaired top brace. Tailpeice and bridge appear to be replacements, finish is intact but shows areas of wear. Neck has some relief but not too much, and set up is quite comfortable. Some top deflection is visible between the bridge and tailpiece and again on the pickguard. These are rare instruments, and finding one that’s crack-free and playable is hard to do.

    Paul, cool instrument but I believe that is a mandocello. Not a tenor guitar. However it is offered by Players Vintage Instruments which has a great collection of tenors.
