If you’ve watched my tenor guitar videos you will be familiar with English musician Tom Kimber. Tom and I came up with a new model of tenor guitar. The guitar is the same shape and size as the Session King but has a SS design soundboard – it has arching similar to a 90s Sobell guitar for more punch in the mids and a thicker treble.
This first Tom Kimber tenor has a torrefied sitka spruce soundboard, with a stunning dyed burl maple rosette as standard. It features a New Guinea rosewood neck with ebony head veneers front and back, and a body made from beautifully figured Queensland silkwood. The guitar body is fully bound with rocklite ebano, and has a high gloss finish.
In short, many of the popular upgrades folk order with their Session King tenor are standard in the Tom Kimber model.
