Please can anyone help me with my inquires with this model of guitar. I bought mine five years back,took it over to Gibson in Nashville. they said take it down to George Gruhn as we do not have any records left of this model due to a fire or something back in the 50's. but beware if he wants it he will price it low!! It's in it's original case with the red line around the lid and in excellent excellent condition considering it's now 70 years old. I want to keep it but for insurance purposes need to know it worth one way or the other. I'm at an absolute loss what to do.I'm willing to send anyone photo's (JPEGS) if they wish to view it.
Thanks in anticipation. As Aye........Phil

Scouse Phil: any chance of your getting a photo of this linked to this thread? Those of us into guitar porn like to drool over pictures like this.

You are far more likely to get responses if you ask the Help forum folks to remove the BS label from this thread so that it will appear among the music threads.

Hi Phil,
I found four of those guitars in
my Granny's Attic with the original
wrapping still on them. I got nine
dollars apiece for the guitars
and I grow some mean tomatoes
in the cases.
You should be looking in the region
of 7-8 dollars if you throw in the case.
Regards, Paul.

NOW *this* is absolutlely unbelievable, scouse!!!

I also own a '35 Gobson tenor. I'm not too sure of the model but it is #292. It's black with a white pick guard and white piping. I love it. I got it about 5 years ago at Picker Supply in Fredricksburg, Va and traded a '54 Martin 0017 tenor and POS Ovation 6 string even up fir it. The had it priced at $800 without a hard shell case. It's in average to above average condition, but plays and sound great. Big sound for a tenor and I know. I've had a lot of tenors over the years...

BTW, sounds like yer into these tenors so let me tell you waht they have a Pickers Supply as we speak. A '34 National plectrum with the Lilly of the Valley motif on the steel top... And it's like brand spanking new...... I swear...... $4000 an its yours. Original hardsheel case inside a custom made canvas carrying bag...

Ouch........................

Without piccies, hard to value. Good tenor guitars used to be available for a song but are now becoming more popular again so prices are going up a little.

By the way, I'd love to get this well-priced little gem if it weren't for the other instrument procurement projects being currently passed under Her Good Ladyship's critical eye for approval.

Peace

tenor players: are you playing these in CGDA, or cheating with DGBE?

By way of thread drift, for those who like to drool(?), my local newsrag had a very small item stating that Eric Clapton is "dumping" his collection. Little detail except that he's putting 56 guitars up for sale.

Any one heard more??? I'd heard that he had a "memorable collection."

JiK, I gather Clapton's "yard sale" (!) is to further finance the Drug & Drink addiction clinic he founded in W.Indies. DETAILS HERE

I wouldn't consider it cheating to be playing a tenor guitar with DGBE tuning. Probably the most well known tenor guitarist in folk or any genre was Nick Reynolds of the Kingston Trio. I know for a fact that Nick played in standard guitar tuning because he not only personally told me, but upon viewing some of those old Capitol album covers it is pretty easy to see what chord configuration his left hand is making.

Nick Reynold's superb tenor playing, usually capo'd way up on the 5th or 7th fret was a very definitive sound that differentiated the Kingston Trio.

For insurance purposes, $800--$1200 would be okay, what you might sell it for requires a buyer who really wants it! You didn't say if it was archtop, those usually get more $$, but many like the flats too. The archtops with round sound holes are also highly prized, as the f-hole models are less rare. If you learn to play CGDA, then you can also play(Tenor) banjo or mandolin family instruments like octave mando or mandocello. Tiny Grimes tuned DGBE, however, and he was one of the best.

From what I have recently been reading in Vintage Guitar magazine, tenor guitars have virtually no market, archtop or flat top.
