Eastwood Guitars Warren Ellis “Ten” Tenor

10th Anniversary Signature Model

Unique collaboration between Eastwood and Warren Ellis

The Warren Ellis “Ten” Tenor is a special 10th anniversary signature model from Eastwood Guitars, and is one of many unique instruments developed in collaboration between multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis. Ellis, primarily a violinist known for playing with The Dirty Three, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Grinderman, and many film scoring gigs, has a unique style of pushing sonic musical boundaries. If you are looking to push your musical boundaries, and move beyond (or work backwards from the typical 6-strings of a normal electric guitar), I think that you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the inspiration you can draw upon when you “mix shit up a bit” so to speak (pardon my French).

This “Ten” Tenor is sleek, stripped back, and minimalistic. It features a single Warren Ellis Blade pickup (newly retuned especially for this model), an on/off slide switch, and a KILL switch added for staccato effects. That’s it! So, what about those controls or, really, lack thereof? By taking volume and tone circuits out of the equation, sound is delivered directly from your fingers to your pedals/amp with zero interference. The dynamic responsiveness and touch sensitivity of the guitar is expanded as a result!

Obviously if you play Tenor guitar, Mandolin, Violin or Viola, Mandola – Any of those other instruments that aren’t your standard electric guitar you have probably found that they aren’t all that common. So having such an interesting selection of affordable choices from Eastwood and Airline guitars is a real treat - Especially for studio and touring musicians. Those of you who come from a typical 6-string guitar background might be wondering, like I did, “what the heck would I do with something like that????” Well if you have ever been in one of those spots where you just can’t seem to come up with a new idea or riff, stuck in a rut, or just plain bored of what you’re doing, these are a great way try something new! Step outside your comfort zone and be pleasantly surprised with what you come up with. You won’t regret it!

You can probably guess from the name that this is an electric tenor guitar – Also available with volume and tone controls, with two pickups, and in a Baritone configuration. One of many unique configurations and instruments offered by Eastwood such as electric Mandolin, Mandola, high tuned 12-strings and more
