    Some History:

    Coincidentally there is one these for sale. It seems to be a bit expensive in relation to the condition of the top and it needs work on the frets and the nut. I also have no idea how these sound. But I find the combination of a flat top/fixed bridge and a carved back very interesting.

    Dylan playing at Newport in '64. He's not playing a tenor, but the guy seated behind him has one leaning against him.

    Funny, I've had this video on my computer for years (since before I played tenor!) but this is the first time I've noticed that.

    I've seen this video a zillion times and never noticed that either! It's an all-birch Harmony 1215T. The binding and purfling is painted on. I've had a few of these! Thanks for sharing!

    The first time I have seen the video. It was recorded 56 years ago,
    and is still good. I think we could say that song has passed the test
    of time.
    Thanks,

    A beautiful playing and especially sounding Fletcher 21” scale tenor guitar. Tuned GDAE and an octave lower than a mandolin. Amazing sustain and presence.

    I’ve always wanted to try a Fletcher to see how well the 21” scale could support a low G. It looks great.

    The G string is very strong and very resonant. Jamie has these tenor guitars dialed in. Lightweight, too. Played O’Carolan duets (thanks Scott!) several days ago with a friend. He plays an oval hole A5 and the two complimented one another in lovely fashion. The tenor was had lots more volume than the A5, though.

    Gorgeous Fletcher tenor there Jim, I still bitterly regret selling my all mahogany Fletcher tenor a number of years ago. Financially I didn't have a choice but it's definitely "the one that got away" that haunts me the most...

    Those Fletchers don’t seem to turn up used very often, and Jamie’s prices appear (deservedly) to have risen:
