If you are lucky I may have a guitar for sale available immediately.
Tenor guitars are hard to find, good tenor guitars are even harder. These tenor guitars are more than just good, they are outstanding. You won't find anything better anywhere.
Finish: I prefer a varnish finish both for sound and beauty, but it is a softer finish that dents rather than scratches. It is also a lot more work, particularly on a guitar. However, I have so many comments from people on how much they like my varnish finishes that I have switched to varnish on the guitars as the standard offering. Varnish does give a slightly warmer and looser sound on a new guitar that I do prefer.
Wood choice: The possibilities are endless. Mahogany is the traditional choice for Tenor guitars, with many vintage instruments made entirely from Mahogany. I don't offer all Mahogany Tenor guitars because I can't get Mahogany in good enough quality or volume for tops. Mahogany is listed on CITES Appendix II so cannot be imported into Australia, but I do have a limited amount of old Mahogany available for back and sides. Tasmanian Myrtle or Tasmanian Black Heart Sassafras are excellent substitutes, and in many respects are a better choice. Myrtle makes a beautiful sweet, warm sounding tenor guitar.
