That Train

Cabin fever from doing a little too much "social distancing" in reaction to the COVID-19 virus led to this playtime fun. 

Fender announced the Tenor Tele at NAMM, January 2019, but didn't ship any until much later in the year.  I think I received mine on New Year's Eve Eve.  It arrived strung up like the higher four strings of a guitar (DBGE); very light.  I wanted an electric octave mandolin, so I fit bigger strings on it and tuned it GDAE.  The PR and Leslie have been in the family forever.

This is a Los Lobos tune that I've known for a long time and it sounds really cool with this setup.
