If you’ve been following my tenor guitars over the years, you’re likely acquainted with the talented English musician, Tom Kimber. Together, we’ve designed an exciting new rendition of my tenor guitar, design merging the Session King shape with many innovative features. Introducing the Tom Kimber model, boasting a distinctive SS design soundboard reminiscent of the revered 90s Sobell guitars, enhancing midrange punch and treble thickness.

The first Tom Kimber tenor showcases a torrefied sitka spruce soundboard, complemented by a striking dyed burl maple rosette as a standard offering. Its neck is crafted from luxurious New Guinea rosewood, adorned with ebony head veneers on both sides. The body, fashioned from exquisite figured Queensland silkwood, is works and feels like a lightweight mahogany. The body is fully bound with rocklite ebano and finished with a high gloss lacquer, this model epitomises premium craftsmanship.

In essence, the Tom Kimber tenor guitar model incorporates many sought-after upgrades typically requested for the Session King tenor, now standard to deliver unparalleled performance and aesthetics.
