    Re: Breaking A-Strings in CGDA tuning

    You could use a 21” scale as a steel A string will always be near it limit on a 23” scale.

    Re: Gypsy jazz tenor guitar at modest price point

    You could look at converting a six string or getting someone to convert it for you.
    New neck, re shaped bracing and perhaps re sanding the top, not cheap but a lot less than 5k .

    Re: Down the Tenor Rabbit Hole... (Help)

    I do understand, I have quite a few tenors and I have a couple that I have bonded with!
    In fact the one I use every day is not actually a tenor guitar but a 1960s Mahogany baritone ukulele tuned...

    Re: Down the Tenor Rabbit Hole... (Help)

    You seem set on a vintage instrument?
    There are some nice new tenors around like the Blueridge BR 40t that really are good value for money.

    Re: C Standard (Guitar) Tuning On Electric Tenor

    If you are already familiar with 5ths, why not use GDAE on a 23” standard scale length, electric tenor guitar?

  8. Re: Damaged 1931 Epiphone Beverly - okay to play as is?

    I agree, that would be a great project for a skilled hobbyists and if you could sell it, you could buy yourself a working tenor guitar.

    Re: Vintage Viaten intonation

    Good ingenuity fix there!
    So did you get the guitar really cheap or do you have a very expensive luthier?

    Re: Vintage Viaten intonation

    I would strongly suggest that the cause is due to poor intonation, it would be worth a visit to your locale luthier or some careful DIY.
    There is a chance the fret spacing is not accurate but...

    Re: CGDA to GDAE tuning

    I would recommend lower tension for use on an solid body electric, especially if you like bending the strings perhaps something like 11 18 28 40 .
    However that is only a educated guess as I have...

    Re: CGDA to GDAE tuning

    No the gauges are good for strumming but I hope you get to explore single note melody, double stops, strumming and chord melody!
    All work so well on a tenor.

    Re: CGDA to GDAE tuning

    I believe those string gauges will work fine but would not be my choice.
    12p or 13p are both good, I personally prefer 12p.
    18p for the A can be exchanged for a wound string, either 18w or 20w some...

    Re: CGDA to GDAE tuning

    The minimum useable scale would be 18” but that could be called a short scale octave mandolin.
    You would need something like a .060 for the G on a 16” scale. Even then you would not really have a...

    Re: CGDA to GDAE tuning

    You would have to quote a scale length if you want an accurate answer but as a generally rule the G would be to thick to be comfortable .

    To be honest GDAE is a very popular tuning for tenor guitars.

    Ah ok, it’s just that there is a tenor guitar section on this forum but anyway, you are already on the heavy side.

    Sorry for my ignorance but what is a 018T?
    I thought that was a Martin 1950s tenor guitar.
