Gibson TG-1 Tenor Guitar circa 1932 No Longer Available

This is a Gibson TG-1 Tenor Guitar, circa 1932. The dating is not exact for this period, but it was made between 1927 and 1937.

Tenor guitars became very popular in the 1920’s, going with the rise of the tenor banjo as a rhythm instrument for jazz type music. Possibly first built in the dawn of the 20th century by Lyon and Healy – many of their guitars carried the brand name ‘Washburn’ – by 1920 most manufacturers built them.
