The above photo shows the three generations, The new build, the two finished tenors, and the partially finished Pinecones behind them. I usually begin a new build when the former build is ready to be French polished.
And here is the final photo of the two tenors all dressed up with their colorful Guatemalan straps and ready to be sent to their new homes in Edmonton and New Jersey. Enjoy them Alan and Glenn.
