  1. Re: Total new guy intro and how to tune my new Eastwood WE tenor

    Can't a six string be tuned in even more ways? Having 50% more strings, it's way more versatile.
    An earlier post suggested that Chicago tuning has a fuller, deeper tone. Hmm, like a six string?

    Sorry Tico, That was just me maybe being a bit of a smartass. I think we understood what you were saying.
  3. Re: PSA - those old-school wooden pyramid metronomes

    Really? Or is this just the wording? Or am I reading this when I should be asleep?

    Wouldn't the time between every other click (let's call them odd) be the same, and the time between the evens be...

    Re: Build A Tenor Guitar

    On my abandoned conversion I used a hacksaw and cut through the fret wires. It went really well, except when I rushed.

    I'm starting to feel like getting back to it.... Thanks

    Re: Build A Tenor Guitar

    Well howdy neighbour! I'm a couple blocks from Willowbrook.

    I've never seen any new electrics under $500. Even used Eastwoods are a little more than that. I started a cheap conversion a couple...

    Re: Build A Tenor Guitar

    Well, it depends on what you mean by "a good tenor guitar", "a pretty penny" and "cheap enough". Then there is the hope that your luthier won't cost too much.... Definitely ask what they'll charge...
  9. Re: Real talk: Are the C strings in the J78 packs dead?

    Thank you. I don't see gauges listed. ?
  10. Re: Real talk: Are the C strings in the J78 packs dead?

    I was going to ask you what gauges, but then thought I could just check on-line. I don't see mandocello strings on their site. Did you order a custom set? More to the point, what gauges?


    Thanks!

    Re: Fender Tele Tenor at NAMM

    Yeah, I really don't get the popularity of that tuning.
    I think the majority of players who have five string tenors made for a fuller sound/range tend to tune in in 4ths. Go figure...

    Re: Fender Tele Tenor at NAMM

    The FB group I'm a member of has it at about a tie between tenor and 'chicago' tuning and a good number of GDAE. I think the Tenor Guitar Foundation (or is it Registry) has CGDA in the majority.

    Good catch Verne, but the in the youtube post from namm "to make this super easy, it's just tuned like the top part of a guitar, so you've got D,G,B and E."

    Re: 1990 Kentucky 4-string

    Seller says this is less than he paid back then, but he could have been ripped off, or the CDN price could have been that mush more as was/is often the case.

    They're asking $1000 CDN ($750ish US). Good price? - I can't rationalise spending that anyway, but curious.
