I have this thing about tenor guitars and cuatro and bajo sextos and the like, but mostly tenor. I helped a neighbor clean out and pack away her husbands workshop, he died in combat. he was a hobby guitar builder/player. As payment she dropped off 2 of those squier mini electrics still in the box. I guess he always bout good but inexpensive guitars and modded them. so, my question is can I just use the inner 4 strings or do I have to cut or buy a new nut and bridge. How hard would it be to make it a true tenor electric.

Likewise I have 2 3/4 electric bass that go for around 149 USD, how hard would it be to turn one of them into a tenor electric. Unfortunately, most custom built tenors are currently out of my reach or I dont like them and the ones I do like are vintage and only God can afford them.

thanks in advance ...

You couldn't really turn a bass into a tenor, since a tenor is tuned above a 6 string electric.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

As far as the bass , It is basically the same length as a tenor or the mini squier take the strings off and I guess cut a net nut as i think the bass would be too big string wise...wouldnt it? I only ask because I read some where where a man in australia did something similar.
