    Good ingenuity fix there! So did you get the guitar really cheap or do you have a very expensive luthier?

    I would strongly suggest that the cause is due to poor intonation, it would be worth a visit to your locale luthier or some careful DIY. There is a...

    Ha Ha donít worry those gages will work just fine. The thing is, most folk can adjust to the feel of a certain string sets and be quite happy with...

    No the gauges are good for strumming but I hope you get to explore single note melody, double stops, strumming and chord melody! All work so well...

    fox replied to a thread CGDA to GDAE tuning in Tenor Guitars
    I believe those string gauges will work fine but would not be my choice. 12p or 13p are both good, I personally prefer 12p. 18p for the A can be...

    The minimum useable scale would be 18” but that could be called a short scale octave mandolin. You would need something like a .060 for the G on a...

    You would have to quote a scale length if you want an accurate answer but as a generally rule the G would be to thick to be comfortable .

    Ah ok, it’s just that there is a tenor guitar section on this forum but anyway, you are already on the heavy side. Some folk prefer .013 for the E...

    Sorry for my ignorance but what is a 018T? I thought that was a Martin 1950s tenor guitar.

  1. Hi J.C.

    I saw that you purchased a Mendel a short while ago and I'm interested to hear what you think. If it's the one that's listed on his site as "sold", nice choice. I'm in the market and haven't yet had a chance to play a bunch. I'm curious to know what it sounds like and how many OMs you tried out before your purchase. If you had a chance to play a few of Joe Mendels - what did you think of the others? I may have my eye on that Adi/rosewood. Well, I hope you're happy with it! Thanks for your time. Enjoy!
    Bob
