Through the years tenor guitars have had several periods of limited popularity. Originally, tenor guitars were used in small string 'parlor' groups and small Jazz bands. They were very popular in the early twentieth century. The reason was simple, America was going through a mandolin and ukulele craze as well as a dixieland tenor banjo fad. The tenor guitar could be tuned as a mandolin or uke, and used by a player to 'fatten' the sound of the mandolin band by adding a guitar. Since it was tuned the same, any mandolin player could double on guitar. It was the same with the tenor banjo. The tenor guitar was a prized addition to a band without the band seeking out a guitar player!
