    I'm not sure. Perhaps it's a 4 string tenor guitar. I don't know anything about them. I've just seen them in the past.

    Cheers,

    It looks like a Gibson EBO but it's awfully small.

    Or she's awfully big!

    :D

    For some reason, that thing makes her like a midget.

    That'd make a nice full-size bass. Silly Epi and Gibson...they don't understand that EB-0s and EB-3s should come in white.

    that looks like a tenor guitar... Hagstrom or more likely Gibson.
    ... wonder what home made amp she is plugging into?

    Heh heh.

    I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that!

    Or maybe I should start drinking and re-read it?

    :D

    That there is a pretty girl.

    And since the tuning keys are so far apart (the ones on the same side) it looks to me that it used to be a 6 string guitar. But I could be wrong.

    :D

    Several of you have identified this as a tenor guitar...that is correct.

    you can tune it alot of different ways.
    4ths is cool, open tunings are great for slide stuff.
     
  13. She's pretty in pics, that's for sure...
    Uh...I didn't see anything indicating any "mods", like hole plugs, etc. I wonder if it's an actual Tenor built that way. Probably. Looks sort of cool. Put some thicker strings on it and it would really be something! ;)

    It could go either way with a pic I guess. :smug:

    Yeah,

    after seeing D.A.R.K.'s tenor guitar I guess they're just made that way.

    Hey, cool.

    :D
