Created in the first years of the twentieth century, TENOR GUITAR became very popular during 1920s and for its distinctive sound and style of its own started to outplace the tenor banjo in popularity. We can hear it from old records of country & western music, swing or jazz.

Today this rather rare, but again more and more used instrument is finding its place in contemporary folk and pop music, as well as Celtic and other ethnic styles. This instrument with its 599mm / 23 & 9/16” scale offers wide range of tuning variants (CGDA, GDAE, DGBE, ADAD, …).

ROZAWOOD TENOR GUITAR is a simply instrument made by traditional way offering to all real music lovers to touch the sound of old times …

 

This offered Tenor Guitar has unique material combination - back and sides are made from nicely colored straight-grain Santos Rosewood (Pau Ferro) and the top from exclusive Curly Redwood - a highly resonant and visually beautiful tonewood. Tonal quality of this guitar, which can be tuned  to the wide range of tuning variants (CGDA, GDAE, DGBE, ADAD, …), is accented by Flamed Maple convex rosette, which makes the sound of this smaller-body instrument really powerful and perfectly ballanced through the all sound spectrum. Otherwise pure design - Flamed Maple binding, Mahogany and b/w rosette and purfling, Ebony bridge and fingerboard & pins with pearl dots, bone nut and saddle, nickel oval GOTOH open-gear tuners with oval knobs, clear pickguar and Santos headplate with pearl RZW logo - enables to excel the natural beauty of used tonewoods.
