    Default Luis Feu de Mesquita..tenor guitar.

    I'm posting this here as I play (larger) 'ukuleles and am going one step bigger yet to a tenor guitar............also the guitar section on U/U is really quiet and I think this will have general interest.
    I don't know how many people check there.
    It will be strung like a baritone.

    Should be ready soon and I'll post more images when ready.
    Thanks for looking
    Robin

    I saw this a day or two ago, and wondered if it was for one of us - so happy to know it is!

    Very nice. I'd love to have him make me that exact kind, but as a bass uke. Can't afford him though.

    Congratulations! That looks beautiful and I know that Luis makes wonderful instruments. (I love tenor guitars, by the way. I have a Beau Hannam tenor guitar and a John Kinnard tenor guitar as well as a Compass Rose steel string baritone.)

    So Robin " YOU" are the one this beautiful tenor guitar is being built for, congratulations. I know Luis has put a tremendous amount of thought and energy into the development of this instrument. Like everything he does he has poured his heart and soul into it so you know it will sound fabulous. So nice to see a fellow Canadian acquiring the first LfdM tenor guitar, well done.

    I remember Luis shown me the drawing of a tenor guitar.
    So it was the blue print of your instrument . So glad you chose to post it here.
    Luis always ask his customer to name the instrument. Have you got a name yet?
    I believe my tenor is being built the same time as your guitar . You are the big brother because of the size!
    May be I will meet you there when we pick up our new additions!

    Look forward to seeing and hearing more!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."
