Slingerland Cathedranola Tenor Guitar (1930's)

sku: 80U-204700
This intriguing Slingerland Cathedranola tenor guitar has a faux resonator look with coverplate (no cone or woundwell) and two screened soundholes. The spruce/birch body has a green “crinkle” finish. A bound pearloid fretboard and pearloid peghead overlay add to the visual effect. This instrument could use some work (sold AS-IS, see Details section below), but otherwise it’s in very good condition.   More Details...
