    Looking really good!
  3. Re: Classical Guitar to Tenor conversion questions

    The conversion is more difficult than it sounds. First the scale length of the classic is probably 25 inches. The tenor likes 20-23 inches. The neck is probably glued onto the body of classic. You...

    Re: buzzing after string change

    I am no expert but I had a buzzy string on my mandolin and replaced it. No more buzz. Something wrong with the string. I could isolate the buzz to a single string.

    Re: Bridge Pin Reamer

    Things just got weird. I pulled one of the pins from the Ibanez to measure and found the pins are 5mm top to bottom. No taper. What the heck is going on?

    Re: Bridge Pin Reamer

    I was hoping there was an industry standard. Looking through the page you quoted, they seems to be fitted per instrument. I will have to dig out my old trig book.

    Bridge Pin Reamer

    I am going to convert my Ibanez PFT2 tenor guitar to an octave mandolin. So I need to add 4 more strings. Seems the bridge pins are either 3 or 5 degrees. It is pretty difficult to measure accurately...

  17. Re: ES Arch Top Guitar Octave Mandolin conversion

    That is a great looking instrument. I will be looking at the fret board hat comes in the kit. I am not a guitarist and the shorter fret spacing is a feature I like on the tenor guitar and mandolin.

  19. Re: ES Arch Top Guitar Octave Mandolin conversion

    I have built 22.5" electric tenor guitars tuned GDAE with good results. Perhaps the acoustic needs the shorter scale. I think I will shoot for the 20" scale by modifying/replacing the neck I am not...
