  2. Re: Planetary tuners or guitar style on tenor banjo?

    I must admit i hate planetary tuners aesthetically speaking. i'd love a TG50 or ETG150 (both Gibson tenors) but only if they are somewhere around the 50s or 60s so i can avoid the planetary...

    Hi, when i spoke to Eastwood over their tenors (of which i currently have two), they pointed out the Warren Ellis ones are made in S Korea, and other models (my classic) in China. The quality...

    Re: Favourite effects for electrics.

    I play a lot of arpeggiated fingerstyle chords and linking melody lines. I actually prefer to...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    wow that's so very different from my Manson, which is a thru neck design. It has a whole different punchy sound. I don't have any single coil tenors to hand (the eastwoods are a bit crap for...

  15. Re: Steve Knightly talks about his approach to Tenor guitsr

    he and I are very similar - vocal range i mean, as i do gravitate to capo at fifth, but the reason I do GDAD is so that I can capo at Bb

    Also I fingerpick, so he's not met me... :) well he has,...
  16. Re: Steve Knightly talks about his approach to Tenor guitsr

    surely... it's Bouzouki tuning - as if capo'd at fifth. String choices aside.
