Tenor Guitar

This has been in the works for a while now, and now it’s done. I can’t wait to have it in my hands and start learning the thing.
I wanted a tenor because it’s something different than I already have, and the sound is so distinctive. This one was custom made by Matt Artinger, an absolutely fantastic luthier from Pennsylvania.

And it seems to be something that’s coming back. A fair number of my friends and acquaintances in the music world play the tenor.

In other guitar related news- for Christmas, I got a Gibson RD Custom. Story goes it used to belong to Dave Grohl, but I don’t know whether to believe that or not.

And with these two new aquisitions, I’m letting go of one of my Godin 5th Avenues. If any of you are interested, drop me a line.
