    Re: Did I make a mistake?

    Re: Do You Swap Instruments While Jamming?

    to answer your question (sorry guys, you gotta at least answer the question before you veer off in another direction): yes, the stock strings are probably junk. I'd get J74s:...

    Re: Flatwounds for a TC

    hehe, that's a pretty good one.

    I'd love it if someone could measure the length of the strings and where the silk starts, just to be sure. Ted?
  14. Re: Good Friday Recording - The Old Rugged Cross/In The Pines

    Re: Talk to me about 'dolas...

    whenever I'm tempted by a dola, I get down the octave and put a capo on 5. suits me, for now at least. would a "real" dola be substantially different?
