    Re: Guitar Bodied Mandola

    +1 what @burt50 said. Sounds balanced across all the strings.

    Nice to see more mandola content lately!

    Re: Burtenshaw Mandola #6

    Yea, that link works. That's a handsome, good-sounding mandola, @burt50! Glad to see more builders doing & featuring them.

    Re: Burtenshaw Mandola #6

    @burt50, is that YouTube link correct? I'm dying to hear this mandola, but the link leads to Emory Lester playing a Northfield for me.

    Yea, the answer is that either tuning will work, as long as you have the correct string gauges. Use a string calculator to figure out what you'll need for each tuning-I use Cafe member Graham...

    So does "spruce top" mean solid spruce top, or will it be a laminate?

    Re: Is this too junky (ebay find lol)

    Yea indeed, $120 is not going to get you very much. I vote for saving up a bit & getting something that you won't want to move on immediately.

    My first mandolin was a Hora. I'll be kind & say it...

    Re: Monel strings

    @Br1ck, which brand are you using? I've tried Kurt Mangan & Martins on my Silverangel. I find that they don't have as dramatic of a break-in as PB strings, and I get a lot more life out of them. They...

    Oh duh. I thought I read it was a 5, but that must have been another thread (and it was 01:30 AM).

    Looking forward to hearing it - that pickup looks intriguing!

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Two things, only tangentially related to tenors:
    1) My first electric guitar was a blonde 70's Tele. It was the epitomy of how bad a guitar could be-heavy, badly set up, the works. But I still love...
