    Re: Classical Guitar to Tenor conversion questions

    Of the various vintage I've had half of the "full size" 15-16" wide bodied have had "full sized" headstock. The ones with smaller heastock tend to be narrower than shorter compared to their six...

    Port Kells Elementary is still standing, but the house in Clayton that we moved to in '73 which I lived in until adulthood was torn down last year to make room for a new school. Harder and harder to...

    Not so I think, my compatriot. Since this discussion has turned to folk music and roots/evolution of the song; you would have learned The Travellers version with lyrics by Sid Dolgay the mandocello...

    Re: Play better when alone

    Try not caring. I found that by just playing brashly, singing loudly and carefree (maybe even trying to annoy) loosened things up. Maybe I don't play any better, but it's a better experience. That...

    Re: Play better when alone

    If I've learned one thing from sci-fi movies and TV, red light= evil. (Even the kid's animated The Land Before Time movies support this - evil carnivores have red eyes.) )

    Re: Hypothetical Wierd Question ?

    I've seen a few (pics). German makers put out a lot of three hole archtop guitars in the 50's & 60's. I'm sure someone on the Cafe will have had experience with a three f-hole Lark. ..?

    Re: Cheap & Cheerfull Tenor Conversion question

    I was going to ask why you don't just get a baritone uke, but maybe you intend to use steel strings?

    Re: New Eastwood/Airline tenor coming

    I can't think of any "tenor" hardware that could not be replaced using off the shelf "six string" parts (except strip tuners).

    Re: New Eastwood/Airline tenor coming

    That's what I would have taken 'machines' to mean, but I don't get how upgrading is made simpler. Simpler that what? The only thing I can think of (aside from what they're on) that makes a set 'tenor...

    Re: New Eastwood/Airline tenor coming

    Yes, I find the six string hardware looks kind of clunky.
    Not sure what you mean by machines. ..? and I don't see why a tenor pickup couldn't be replaced by a six string pickup if you wanted to.

    tone guard

    If it's such a great thing, and as many will say, a must-have, why aren't makers incorporating the likes into their builds (are there some?)? I get it, yes it works.

    I have an archtop tenor that...

    Try Maruha. Their round hole archtop guitar has similar finish as on the back of this mando. I found a pic of a Maruha mando which is pretty close in shape and has similar f-holes, though I think the...

    Re: Please help to identify this mandolin?

    I have a 57 Ibanez round hole archtop guitar... with gold sparkle pickguard. They made "higher-end" blingier models and mando's along the same lines.

    Look like late 50's Japanese. Zero fret, headstock shape, F holes general aesthetic

    Looking at the two I can't help but see the early Simpsons (Tracey Ullman Show) and the tamed down later Simpsons drawing. Brash and then smoothed out and less likely to offend.

    I just found an old ebay listing (2011) with hard case $250 starting bid, no takers.

    Rule of thumb for me, new price less 1/3 if good condition.
