    Re: Left-Handed Players

    While I agree it's not hard and fast, there is some underlying biology that makes it more difficult for some.

    In the book "The Wonder of Boys" the author, a doctor, discusses what happens during...

    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    I've been online since around 1982 and have seen the "online consciousness" go through a number of phases. When the internet started becoming popular in the late 90s a lot of juveniles [of all ages]...
  3. Re: Bigsby/ Jay Roberts: How many made, any out there?

    Wow! Is that ever a mish-mash. Looks like a Fender jazzmaster body shape with a Mosrite German carve and zero fret topped with a Harmony Batwing headstock!

    Back in the day, when Harmony Central was using the same code as the Cafe, it was an amazing forum. Fast, very informative, great insights on deals and an absolute ton of great people.

  5. Re: Why are good mandolins more expensive than good guitars?

    All the makers try to enforce MAP agreements including Fender and Gibson so Collings isn't a whole lot different. Just a smaller player meaning they have fewer products and resellers to police.

    Re: Loar LH600

    FWIK the 600 is The Loar's closest model to an original Loar era F5. The 700 adds bling while 500 and below cuts corners.

    I've not played a 600 yet but would think Eastman has something comparable...
  7. Re: Why are good mandolins more expensive than good guitars?

    I think CNC has changed the game a bit. Old-school builders had to hand-carve the maple backs and sides - maple is a very hard wood making for a very hard job. These days the bulk of the heavy...

    Re: Left-Handed Players

    I'm a lefty that plays right. It was the only way to survive being the only lefty in a family of 6 kids relying on hand-me-downs.

    I play finger-style guitar which requires just as much dexterity...

    Re: Noise with cheap magnetic pickups!

    I recently got one of these sub $10 violin mics just to play with and, while not the best, certainly works in a pinch.

    Now why doesn't Fender re-issue something like this Gretsch 6127 Duo Jet Tenor Guitar?

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    I hope it's a huge success and they do more.

    Since it's listed as one of their standard Telecaster offerings, and is no longer referenced as part of the alternate reality series, is it possible...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    I found it in the telecaster section - thanks for the link Chip/Huck - but doesn't show in the original link on my machine.

    Thanks Huck, I wasn't aware it was a limited run. That said, they don't...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Nice.

    The above link now redirects to Fender's online store. The "Alternate Reality" section of their website doesn't have an entry for the tenor. Someone in another thread said Fender is making...

    Re: Fender 5 string electric mando

    I have one of those mandolins. They are very finicky to get stable tuning and the junky stock tuners are a big part of the problem. Aside from those machines slipping and the buttons falling off,...

    Eastman El Rey?

    So a few of these showed up a few months ago then crickets.

    Anybody know if they will be a regular part of Eastman's offerings or just a one-off?

    Re: 1963 Gibson SG Les Paul Tenor

    I don't profess to knowing much about these but I have seen a couple of others. This is the first I've seen with humbuckers, a whammy bar (collapsible arm no-less) and block inlays. Plus it appears...

    Re: Big Frets on The Loars

    I have instruments with both. Generally speaking I find the shorter the scale the thinner the frets. I say this because the difference comes down to who does the setup and how well they crown the...

    Re: Magnetic Pickup Advice

    I use and like Kent Armstrongs on a couple of my guitars.

    On my mandolin I used a Lace resonator pickup and 2 piezo's ala K&K. I get the best sound by blending them but can run either solo or both...
  21. Re: Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    - aux in
    - separate tone-stacks...
