Follow along as I build a tenor guitar. Blueprints for this guitar are available at Elderly Instruments. A tenor guitar is a small 4 string guitar tuned in 5ths like a violin or mandolin. Search YouTube for “tenor guitars” to see what one looks and sounds like. In this video I review two different plans for tenor guitars and select the wood for the back and sides.
