    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    I wonder what the feasibility is of having a 4-way switch installed.

    With a smaller control plate, I'd imagine the factory installed 3-way switch is smaller. The body cavity may need to be routed...

    Yes Rob, I'm in the Eastern US.

    It seems I'm able to find a few bargains on old Chicago made instruments. (Which I've recently taken an interest in.) $150 seemed like a good deal to me. A lot of...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    I agree Chip.

    With the perceived success of the last rollout, if I were a guitar manufacturer I'd reseach the possibility of making tenors.

    If I were Fender, the Squier Mini would convert to...

    Re: Are tenor guitars slightly evil?

    Rob,
    For me it was an archtop first, THEN a resonator.

    Both exude a certain style or look that gives an added factor (flair) when you play.

    Archtops are just crazy wicked cool and resonators...

    Re: New second hand Kala

    You're most welcome.

    19p is around 18.5 lbs, 20p is around 20.5 lbs tension.

    No idea on a hard shell case. I'd explore Baby Taylor or GS Mini cases for compatibility.

    Good luck!

    Hi Chels,

    The scale length of your Gold Tone OM 800+ is in tenor guitar range. Standard tenor tuning is CGDA.

    More's the pity. At least you can sell it without losing too much or perhaps any money; it's so sought after.
