For the ukulele enthusiast with an interest in acoustic guitar, and vice versa, the Kala Solid Spruce Tenor Guitar is the perfect place to start. Our Tenor Guitar is shorter and lighter than traditional tenor guitars, making it suitable for children and players with smaller hands and fingers, as well as for fingerpicking or strumming. The Solid Spruce top and Pau Ferro back and sides pair to give it a bold contrast in appearance and a crisp, rich tone. The standard tuning is CGDA, but it holds alternate tunings and open tunings just as well. Each Tenor Guitar comes in a gig bag.
The Tenor Guitar as an instrument has an
eclectic and storied past as a specialty 4-string guitar in the bluegrass and folk genres. Popular contemporary players like Warren Ellis and Neko Case have helped to keep this instrument in the public eye.
