The tenor guitar or four-string guitar is guitar variant, with four strings rather than the standard six, and with a slightly smaller body and higher-pitched sound. The instrument was initially developed in its acoustic form by Gibson and C.F. Martin during the 1920s so players of the four-string tenor banjo could double on guitar, and is also manufactured in electric forms.
