Now, that's a lot of fun. I've wanted a tenor guitar for a long time.

Not really an electric, but you know.

That’s sweet. Glad they went with a 4 saddle bridge for alternate tuning folks.

If I were still at the height of my Idaho obsession I’d be first in line for this.

Ok, this I really dig. Something different and worthwhile.

Those miniature telecaster pickups are adorable.

Cool!

But not as cool as Neko Case's SG tenor.

Wow! I have a reversed Strat-style Tenor a friend built for me, but this one I really like!

My homemade Thelenor:

If this Fender one sounds better than the Eastwood Tele Tenor, I will start saving to get one as soon as they‘re available!

I'd love a Tiple or Tres or even a 5 string, Keef-style.

Cool idea but it looks a little weird as a tele. maybe if they could do it like a larger version of the Fender Electric Mandolin, that'd be cool. I always liked the shape of those.


ALSO, I have to, I've long considered a 5 string Tele but with tuned Nashvile-style and in open G. I think that'd be an interesting guitar...

The body is a tad smaller than a regular Tele, or is it my eyes? :ph34r:
