Tupelo Tenor kit

Hi, all, recently finished  gitty 4string kit, used the shorter banjo kit bridge, filed it down quite far, where the  ball ends are almost touching the top. Plays quite well, but i tuned it down to FCFA Because i formerly played 4string e.Bass,the GDGB tuning sounded too high for me.Also ran a ground wire from output jack to barrelhouse bridge.Lipstick pickup very clean through amp.Drilled access hole on back near output jack and installed star disk over it.See More

delivery of Tupelo tenor guitar

  Received my kit today ,everything seems to be in box. I will probably drill an access hole in the back panel to access the volume pot& cable jack. I look forward to selecting a paint scheme for the stains i will use on the Box. Will use Linseed oil on the neck.  Years ago i assembled a Carvin kit Bass gtr & a pro Bassist liked it so much he bought it! I used 5 coats of Tung oil on that.  Happy grooving,,CW SolomonSee More
