Yep, DGBE is a baritone uke, don't know why I wrote tenor other than I had tenor on the mind. :)
Thanks for catching that.

I make my 'tenors' with a 600mm (23 5/16) scale, i use the high four strings from a regular guitar set, and I tune EADG - an octave above the bottom of the guitar or two octaves above a bass. (this would be called a contra piccolo bass in orchestral circles, altho the name is certainly an oxymoron)
as the guys say, some tune em DGBE,(this is actually a bari uke btw) but this seems kind of pointless to me, because anything there could be played on the high four strings on a regular guitar. My one gives me a nice logical extra register of familiar guitar positions etc. Theyre great for jammin with a regular gitt.
there are at least three tenors (tins mostly) in my pics here, and one in a video called tim tam lullaby, check em out..
Did someone say tenor guitar???
