So I like small guitars, and mostly I like tenor guitars (4 strings is about my skill level for playing ;-) I also like Celtic music so this little guy is what I call a Celtic Tenor Guitar, tuned in 5ths to GDAE an octave below a Mandolin so you could also call it an Octave Mandolin I guess.. the choice is yours.. one photo shows size related to am OM model and a more standard tenor (both also my builds)

Made of Engelmann Spruce top, Koa back and sides and a Spanish Cedar neck, with Ebony trim, fingerboard & bridge.. Was fun to do and is fun to play.. Next on the list of slightly off beat instruments is a MandoCello, but first I have 850 sq feet of flooring to lay this summer plus a host of other summer projects..

All of your guitars are beautiful Kerry, wish I had the skills to make them. Two of my five children play guitar.

That’s quite an instrument. Well done.
