    Re: Source for single monel guitar strings?

    I went down this path a couple years ago, after discovering Martin retros for my 6-string, and also wound up getting a few Curt Mangan packs to piece together a set for my 0-17T. I didn't like the...

    Re: HB Tenor Guitar

    Some of the older Martin 5's had 12-fret neck joins. I have a 5-17T like that - I think the change was during the 1929 production year (for that specific model at least). I was able to compare mine...

    Re: Ibanez Tenors appear discontinued

    I ordered one from Elderly and it was set up well enough - I did make some minor adjustments but it was certainly playable. I'd recommend ordering one from them or another trusted source that will...

    Re: And now for something completely different

    Same builder's sold listings show some tenors that are even more "out there". Not very pricey, kind of tempting to get one just to experience it in person.

    Check this thread for lots of advice on gauges. I used a John Pearse set, and it sounds and feels very good.

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    I got one yesterday from Elderly - for the price I'm very impressed. I got it as a cheap tenor that I could leave at my folks' house without having to worry much about humidification and other...

    Re: Tenor tuning - EBF#C#?

    I play in FCGD, and I know a few others on here do. This tuning is only 1/2 step lower, so there's no reason why it wouldn't work with the right combination of guitar & strings.

    Re: Mini Tele Conversion to Five-String

    No problems, other than tuning issues caused by the tremolo, which are not relevant to a Tele.

    New used cheapo 5 string partscaster

    Made a trip to Jake Wildwood's yesterday, primarily to have him put together this 5-stringer from old Squier parts. He drilled new holes in the bridge, removed a saddle and a tuner, slotted the nut,...

    Re: Gigbag for 19 Inch Telecaster Tenor

    If you can find one of these (they're not common), it's a great fit for my Zither tenor guitar, which has the same overall dimensions as your guitar. Really generous padding, good quality, zipper...

    Re: This Martin O-15T sounds great

    Different tastes, different ears, and variable conditions of vintage Martins notwithstanding, I don't think it's really a comparison. I've A/B'd both in a store and owned both at the same time. The...

    Re: Electric mandocello

    I have an Eastwood mandocello, and a couple of their tenors (including the oddly named "tenor baritone", which is basically a 4-string mandocello). Eastwood's QC is not the best, so sometimes you'll...

    There's a Les Paul style Heritage tenor up on ebay. Appears to be a one-off. Anyone have any experience with that brand? NFI and I'm not bidding in any case, but thought folks might be interested.
