    Trevor Healy electric tenor, just built for singer-songwriter Heather Maloney. I got to play this when it was finished - amazing guitar all around. More pics and a short vid (of me unfortunately) on Trevor's Instagram page

    I was on youtube looking for some jug band music and came across The Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band. I had never heard of them but noticed one member playing an engraved tenor guitar. Shows up at :0.14.

    If anybody knows the story on these guys please share some info, they look like a lot of fun back in the day.

    I think the gentleman behind her with the National Tenor is Garoto.

    Michael, thank you for the info. When I read your post, I thought " what the heck is Garoto?" After a search I found out that indeed he was a member of her band and was very well known in Brazil.

    Christopher Fonda on Tenor, doing a Cab Calloway tune with some Slim Galliard and Scatman Crothers thrown in ...


    There's a few of his Videos on You Tube, seems to have a small following and is a member of a band, but I have no idea where he's from or the name of the group. Anyone aware of his background?

    The most info I have seen on them is on the below page; Australian hippies doing fun old timey material. I've had the US version of "Smoke Dreams" for years and I think I have the 7" as well. I picked them up because I collect the ESP-Disk label which was an important tributary of free jazz and also some folk/psych/other stuff.

    Some of the other folky oddball titles on this label that you might like if you like this are an album by Emerson's Old Timey Custard Suckin Band, a couple of Ed Askew albums (tiple and vocals mostly), Sea Chanteys by Ed Killen, albums by Jerry Moore (excellent) and Randy Burns, and Mij the Yodeling Astrologer. You may already be familiar with the early Fugs, Holy Modal Rounders, and Pearls Before Swine albums.

    The Halifax, Nova Scotia library network was just given 150 musical instruments to lend out to patrons, and Joel Plaskett was on hand for the opening ceremony, where he donated one of his tenor guitars. Full CBC story with pics and video clip is here, or click below for just the video (can't figure out how to embed):

    On a related note, I went in to the Halifax Folklore Center (a musical instrument shop) and asked if they had any tenors, and the guy said they get them occasionally but they don't stay long. "It's all Joel Plaskett's fault."

    The guitar Eddy Davis is playing was Eddie Condon’s last plectrum guitar (Condon only played plectrum). The guitar has Eddie’s name on the tailpiece. The photo is taken on the steps of the building that they both lived in the same building on Washington Square north. Eddie Condon’s eldest daughter still lives there, she’s paying pre-war rent on a 7 bedroom apartment off of Washington Square Park. Eddy Davis’ apartment is on the top floor (he sublet it to another musician). There are still residents living in the building who remember Condon stumbling in after door falling into the walls because he was so drunk. Trivia buffs take note: Mathew Broderick grew up in that building.

    This was from an archived discussion about Condon on the banjo hangout.

    Come to think of it, Eddy Davis is another one who plays tenor guitar. He plays the std tenor tuning since he started on banjo. Here is a picture from that thread -- Eddy with Mr Condon's plectrum Gibson L-5.

    I'm fortunate to live just up the road from Trevor Healy, a great luthier who makes the occasional tenor; I've posted his 4-string creations before in this thread. Here's his latest: a 00-size, spruce over walnut. More pics and a video at his Instagram page.

    His next tenor will be a solid body Jazzmaster style. I know this because it will be mine.

    Ok, I did not see this one coming. I was having dinner at a friends and gypsy jazz was playing in the background so I inquired if it was perhaps Stochelo Rosedberg. My host replied "no, it's Peter Frampton"!?

    I did some research and found this interview where he talks about receiving this Selmer Tenor Guitar from Django's producer. Apparently it was owned by Django.

    That's what I am finding out as well. I am giving serious consideration to retuning to Chicago on my tenors and mandolins.
