View Full Version : Zither electric tenor guitar

Here's something unusual and wicked fun (as we say up in these pahts) - a solid body electric tenor guitar made by the Zither Music Company in Texas. They specialize in electric strumstick-like things, but make tenors as well. I think this was one of the first ones they made - I bought it about 4 years ago. I've since had it modified with upgraded pickups and pickguard as well as a nicer gig bag (a Kala U-Bass bag, which fits it just right).

It has a typical tenor guitar 23.75" scale but for you ukers it has an untypical but uke player-friendly 1.5" nut. The body is smaller and lighter than a regular electric guitar - very easy to hold or use with a strap. It's currently strung FCGD (like an octave mandolin tuned down a full step), but it can take all kinds of tunings, including DGBE, GCEA, and others - I think it would do well an octave below standard uke tuning.

I'm only selling this because I lucked into an Earnest Tenorcaster, which has cured my ETGAS for the foreseeable future.
