Looking for a Tom Guy Tenor / 'Bluegrass Ukulele'
Prefer 'Cigar Box', but also interested in the standard figure 8 'Traditional' series.
Open to any, and all, 'Bluegrass' offers.
Thanks!
Eric

I have a friend that makes them. Or do UU need a Tom specifically?

Really hoping for a Bluegrass/Tom Guy but ...
Does your friend have a website?

Hi Eric,
Bluegrass Ukulele's by Tom Guy Sr. and his son -Tom, are incredible instruments. and worthy of your search.
I purchased five or six from them when they where still building, and gifted them to friends to get them to appreciate how good a cigar box ukulele can be.
My recent search of a few months back, to once again own one of his fine instruments - landed me two! , a wonderful Concert that I originally purchased from Tom (and now purchased back! ) , and a beautiful Tenor.
Here is a link to Tom Guy's own photos he put on photobucket :

and a pic of mine- Good Luck with your search! Ed8683886839

Your private message box is full. Make some space and I will send you info on a Black Bear Tenor cigar box ukulele. Its the only Black Bear Tenor black bear ever made.

Really appreciate the thought but, in this case, would just as soon leave it to the pros ...

Hi Eric,
In your search for a Tom Guy Bluegrass ukulele, besides Tom's instruments, other builders also did them - like this one Kamaka built.
