I don’t have a tenor guitar, but I have tuned a Ruan, or Chinese Moon Guitar like one.  It was an ornament for years, but great fun to play.  Please check out the link and enjoy.

Cynthia, I've been to your part of the country, and a chainsaw is a must-own item for sure. Beautiful country!

Cynthia, love this new instrument of yours!  Thanks for showing it to us and playing and singing, too!  And, yes, if I ever got up to your neck of the woods (I'm currently in AZ), I'd watch out for the chainsaw in the doorway!

Thanks so much John, Sheryl and Lexie. John - I think it's more being able to actually play the guitar, and get a key that works for my voice. The mansion, ROFL, I'll have to put a sign at the end of the driveway. ...just don't trip over the chainsaw coming in the door!

I must say, thank you for your clip. In a way, I feel responsible for you getting one, as I got 2 in the past winter, a vintage Harmony tenor guitar that was refurbished, and my Ibanez PFT2 - Natural, a mini dreadnought style, as opposed to the parlor size which you had gotten.  Both Ibanez' are super value for there money.  As I'd shared privately, and will say publicly, if Joni Mitchell played the Ibanez George Benson model electrics live in the late 70's and early 80's, then you know that Ibanez is a brand to be trusted.  I simply can not say enough good things about mine.

 

The one thing Cynthia and I discovered is that the best strings for these tenors believe it or not is the La Bella tenor guitar strings.  The strings D'Addorio makes supports GDAE tuning, but are way too heavy for the standard tenor tuning of C G D A.  I emailed the guy I bought the Harmony from to ask what strings he used, and he told me La Bella, so there you go.

Ibanez Artwood parlor tenor guitar. 5ths tuning, but tuned down a step. I like this tenor guitar quite well and did a short bit of review and play of it.
