I just started the kit my sisters got me for my birthday. It seems to be pretty well thought out.

Thanks! I don't think they all do have the center block.

I love tenor guitars in Chicago tuning. DGBE and in GDGB. Dang, I have plenty, but that kit should be strong light and sound good. Some of my big box tenors are heavy.

There are 2 finishing pieces that go on the ends, you can see them on the right side of the frame. These will make the tenons line up. This is the Mountain Tenor kit. I'm not sure if all of them have that center block or not.

Hmm.  I don't recall mine having the center braces with cutouts.

Comment by Uncle John on August 17, 2019 at 7:50am

Yup, light and strong.  I have one, but have not built with it.  I don't like the protruding tenons.  Are you going to leave them or try cutting them off?
