    Re: Octave Scale Question

    Definitely not looking to attempt 4 finger chop chords. Mostly want to play open chords and plan on using a capo at times. One of the reasons I want one is just to be able to use a capo. It's...

    Re: Octave Scale Question

    Ok great, thanks. With the 2nd fret acting as a nut it was just over 11" to the 14th fret with the whole "scale" from the 2nd to bridge being 22.5" which is the scale of one of the octaves I'm...

    Re: Octave Scale Question

    So will the scale determine the fret size or will the length of the neck? I assume the scale.

    Octave Scale Question

    I've been considering an octave for a while and played the Northfield at Grey Fox this year which sealed the deal. It was so much fun to play. The Northfield is way out of my budget so I have been...

    Re: Bowl back info

    thanks for the advice. I honestly wasn't that interested in it anyway, more just curious about it. I'm not really in the market for one, just figured if this was a good deal I might pick it up.

    Fishing Video

    Nice little fishing video with some nice acoustic (some mando) accompaniment. (mando starts at 2:00). Great outtakes at the end too.
