1925 Stromberg-Voisinet Tenor guitar, from the company that became Kay


This is a beautiful 90 year old tenor guitar. She's had some work done to keep her looking young. With a spruce top, birch back and sides, and mother-of-toiletseat fretboard it's hard not to love this odd shaped tenor.

I'm always surprised when I see a tenor guitar with a pin-less bridge. Even though I know that the tension is similar to a regular six string ( if using a string gauge that accommodates the scale and pitch) I always feel like the bridge could fly off at any moment.
