    I'm not at the show this year so one of the Cafe members will have to investigate and report back.

    These guys are the greatest. One year I was hanging beside a booth and Tony Levin stops beside me and started chatting. You meet the nicest people at NAMM.

    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    Thanks. From what I've been able to gather they announced the Tenor Tele last year as a limited "alternate reality" run of under 1,000 that just started shipping a few weeks ago. Apparently once...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Some do and some don't. I did a search and it's inconsistent. Adding more baffle is that ukes tend to be tuned in 4ths leading one to think a 9th fret marker would be the preferred placing.

    Interesting factoid - ukes are the largest selling stringed instrument in the world by a long shot. Guess that's where the money is.

    And just to keep things interesting Fender is releasing a bunch of ukeleles with the fret marker at the 10th. I don't play uke but the tunings appear to be generally in 4ths and pics show the fret...

    Re: Mandobird pickup upgrade success, mostly.

    IME bass and mandolin work best with a full-range signal path. In both cases pickups that don't color the sound work best so what works on one should be fine on the other. Mandolin requires mid-range...
