Thread: Tenor Guitar Gallery & Sightings

  1. #226

    Default Re: Tenor Guitar Gallery & Sightings

    Here is my converted Eastman Airline e-mandola, converted to a tenor e-guitar, it plays and sounds fantastic, 18" scale lets me do things I can't on longer scale tenors.

    I am currently taking lessons from a guitar player, to learn better rhythm accompaniment patterns, I need to post a recording soon of some of what can be done a on a tenor. We are having fun trying to be creative about taking what sounds good on a 6 string and trying to emulate it on a 4.

    I have started calling myself a tenor guitar player instead of calling it an octave mandolin. Something about that makes things easier.

    I donīt think Frampton is playing much tenor guitar. But according to an interview Iīve read this Selmer tenor was a gift from a music producer from France and it was indeed Djangos tenor guitar that he had lying around in his house (or maybe caravan ;-)).
    In any case, it looks nice on the photo.

    I did a bit of searching but with no conclusive results although one source suggested a Kay model with a Birch top and two separate sources suggested a base model Harmony that had been blinged up by the prop department .

    I did a bit more research and even joined a fan group on Facebook but no more details about the guitar however I did learn that Kirk was a talented tenor banjo player and a pretty good trumpet player too.

    This is my favourite tenor guitar moment or two. In fact, I have stopped playing my tenor guitars having viewed this clip. Otto "Coco" Heimel is the skilled player.

Some posted on the youtube posting that Eddie Lang was the guitarist.





    This is such a mammoth thread, it's hard to keep track. Otto made the gallery in post #40 November 2012.

    That tenor guitar played by Kirk Douglas appears to show the neck joining the body at fret 12. I think that Kay and Harmony flat top tenors showed 14 frets to the body- my Kay does. I imagine that with early tenor guitars it is a different story. My 1927 Windsor Whirle which has a 20.5 inch scale shows 12 frets to the body.
