  4. 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!
    Thing is, that guitar has a wide neck and a 22.5” scale but, that does not mean you...

    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.
    The bracing could be reshaped and the...

    Re: Georgia by Ray Charles For Tenor Guitar

    Thanks Roland, great job on the video I hope to see more..... it looks like your guitar is a full size 6 string with two strings removed?
  14. Re: Rough and ready ... quick and dirty, electric conversion.

    I did not want a tremolo so I filled the space, I also managed to get a reasonable finish using spray cans but it took a few goes, I hope to fix the fretboard on tomorrow...

    Re: Six to eight string conversion

    Nice colour, how did you paint it and with what?
    I think it might play and look better with lipstick pickups but it still looks great!
  22. Re: Rough and ready ... quick and dirty, electric conversion.

    The new one alongside the modified neck one, exactly the same guitar body just reshaped and with a new neck.
    I will have a look for some new pickups over the next few days....
