NTGD! - after two months wait

Recommended Posts

New Tenor Guitar Day! (yesterday)

I won this on ebay just as the lockdown started. It was pickup only so I've had to wait until now to pick it up whilst observing appropriate social distancing measures.


Its an Ozark tenor guitar which came with a fitted hard case. It has a solid cedar top and rosewood-faced laminated sides & back. I already own an Eastwood Warren Ellis solid-bodied tenor which I use in Chicago tuning (D-G-B-E) so I've set this up the same.

It needed a bit of a truss rod tweak to reduce the relief slightly but I'll probably not need to make any further adjustments to the nut & saddle as its very comfortable to play. It sounds really lively and open. I was surprise how good it sounds for such an inexpensive instrument. I have been looking at pickup options - it seems the soundhole isn't wide enough to accomodate a magnetic pickup so I'll most likely use my iRig acoustic for recording.
