Blueridge has re-introduced

the classic 0-sized tenor guitar in the BR-40T and has perfectly reproduced this popular model down to the last detail. An entire new generation of musicians thrill to the bright, ringing sound of the tenor guitar and it will surely be in the forefront of new styles of folk music yet to be invented!

Multiple tunings are possible with the Tenor guitar. Including:

DGBE (guitar or bari uke) Chicago tuning
cgda (mandola tuning)
DBGD (plectrum banjo tuning)

For a lot of very interesting insight and instrument comparisons watch the video below. There is an easy transition for musicians who already play the mandolin, the mandola, the guitar and the tenor banjo. Here are the features of the BR-40T:

  • Solid Sitka spruce top with scalloped braces gives you clean articulation and a crisp tone

  • Mahogany back and sides for a robust sound and resonance

  • Slim mahogany neck offers fast, easy action and inherently long-lasting stability

  • Choice East Indian rosewood fingerboard ensures silky smooth playability

  • Nickel-plated 14:1 tuners are smooth and precise to always keep you in tune

  • Recommended cases: C-1511, CB-361
