    Re: Heritage tenor

    Heritage is well-regarded in the electric guitar world. They're ex-Gibson employees that still work out of the old factory in Kalamazoo, making excellent Les Paul & 335-alikes.

    That tenor's going...

    Excellent version, Mark. To produce a moving version straight to video is really enviable. Keep 'em coming!

    Re: Favourite overdrive?

    If you're into pedal building the Aion Electronics Nimbus, based on the Maxon OD-820, is super cool.

    I really like the BJF Honeybee circuit too - it's more like a Supro than the classic TS-based...

    Re: NMD Gibson pre-1910 H-1 Mandola

    Hank, congrats on the score, that is one nice-sounding mandola. Seems like everything is pointing to a risk well taken, and since you've got good luthiers in your area, any of the typical Gibson...

    Re: Build A Tenor Guitar

    Hey Herman, I just pulled the frets & put in new ones after having the neck slimmed. I know Fox just takes an angle grinder to the neck & cuts it down frets & all, but I'm not that brave.

    Re: Build A Tenor Guitar

    @Herman, I went down this precise road. I found a 22.5" scale "girl power" electric for less than €100.00, and did the rest with spare parts (except the tuners & carpenter costs). I'd recommend the...

    Thanks Fox, I like "contrasting" :) Those tuners are Klusons for Firebird guitars, and although heavy, they really do the job. I tried some econo "plantetaries" from Eagle, but they would hold tune -...
