    Re: Strings gauges for 21" scale tenor guitar

    Hi Guilhem, that is a nice looking little guitar, I think Hucks suggestions are very good especially as a starting point.

    I don’t know that answer, it could be something to do with frequency or some other fact I have no understanding of?

    Re: High Quality Short Scale Tenor Guitar?

    I think you would notice more clarity from a custom made guitar, all the mass produced tenor guitars will be overbuilt for durability and strength in preference to clarity of sound.
    Personally I...

    Hi Roland, great news, I guess it depends on the song but it make no odds to me as I play in both C&G .
  11. Re: Bach Cello Prelude for Tenor Guitar GDAE or CGDA

    Hi Roland, I have been practicing, learning that tune for many years on tenor banjo, tenor guitar and six string.

  14. Re: Rough and ready ... quick and dirty, electric conversion.

    Yeah I thought the same, you can only really get the 3d effect when the epoxy is at lease 3-4 mm deep so I would have to do a fair bit of sanding to reduce the thickness but maybe .....
  15. Re: Rough and ready ... quick and dirty, electric conversion.

    Well it came out pretty clean, just one tiny overspill that I should be able to patch up.
  16. Re: Rough and ready ... quick and dirty, electric conversion.

    I was having problems with the infill piece of wood showing through the paint, even though I sealed it with epoxy!
    I felt reluctant to sand it back and re paint the thing again as the paint finish...

    Re: Thomann tenor

    I don’t know where you live but I guess the age old analogy of “you get what you pay for” applies in most places!

    Re: High Quality Short Scale Tenor Guitar?

    You could take your Kala to a luthier and he may be able to improve the guitars sound.
    Like most mass produced guitars, they are slightly over built.
