    Re: Middle four tuning

    A big "uke" that sounds like a guitar. :mandosmiley: I readily admit that I moved to a tenor guitar tuned DGBE because six strings were too much for this bass player to handle. The funny thing is...

    Re: Middle four tuning

    I did a quick study on the D major chord (D F# A) using ADGB tuning. The standard chord formation for a 6 string would be 0023. This would result in ADAD. The F# is missing. A D major chord could...

    Re: Middle four tuning

    Since I am primarily a bass guitar player I looked at tuning my tenor guitar to EADG (like a bass guitar). The problem was I couldn't form chords that contained all of the necessary notes. On a six...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Beautiful guitar! Thanks for posting.

    It's also listed on the Fender website in the Telecaster section.

    Re: Fender Tele Tenor at NAMM

    Fender has the Tenor Tele listed on their website ( https://shop.fender.com/en-US/electric-guitars/telecaster/alternate-reality-tenor-tele/0141042302.html ), so maybe they had a change of heart and...

    Re: Unusual Electric Tenor/Mandolin/Uke

    Nice looking instrument but the string spacing at the bridge is inconsistent. The space between the 2 and 3 strings is larger than the space between the 1 and 2 strings and the 3 and 4 strings.

    Re: Fender Tele Tenor at NAMM

    That would make sense from a business perspective, but it would certainly create a lot of ill will towards Fender in the tenor guitar community.

    Re: New Tenor guitar

    It looks good to me but I'm primarily a bass player so I'm used to the bridge being at the end of the body. :mandosmiley:
  11. Re: Rough and ready ... quick and dirty, electric conversion.

    Nice job! A 21 inch scale electric tenor is impossible to find, so you might be flooded with requests. Watch out! :mandosmiley:

    Re: Fender Tele Tenor at NAMM

    :confused: This doesn't make any sense from a business standpoint. Fender was literally selling these tenor guitars faster than they could make them. My best guess is there was a management change...

    Re: Soares'y Electric Tenor

    I got one of the last Warren Ellis 2Ps with the 2 mini-humbuckers (no trem, made in Korea). It is a great sounding guitar. I always receive complements on my tone when I play it. I'm not sure why...

    Re: Ibanez AVN1 in Chicago tuning?

    I use the top four strings from John Pearse 650LM Bluegrass strings ( https://www.stringsandbeyond.com/john-pearse-acoustic-guitar-strings-650lm-bluegrass-12-56.html ) for Chicago tuning on my...

    Re: Soares'y Electric Tenor

    That tenor strat looks much better than the conversions he used to do. I looked at his tenor guitars before I bought my Warren Ellis 2P but it was very obvious that they were converted 6 string...
  16. Re: Is the wait for the Fender Tenor Telecaster worth it?

    I love my Warren Ellis 2P (made in Korea) for playing lead lines. I have big hands so the wide string spacing helps me not hit the wrong string. For strumming though I use my Blueridge BR-60T which...
  17. Re: Is the wait for the Fender Tenor Telecaster worth it?

    The Eastwood tenorcaster costs $100 more and also won't ship until November. The Eastwood tenorcaster also has the Warren Ellis (wide) string spacing. The Warren Ellis 1P is available now but costs...

    Re: Fender Tele Tenor at NAMM

    Expected shipping date is now being listed as September 18. The blue is sold out everywhere I looked. I didn't know you could sell out during the pre-order phase. Sweetwater is indicating the...
  19. Re: Total new guy intro and how to tune my new Eastwood WE tenor

    It is possible to tune a six string in fifths, but its rare. Forming chords on a six string tuned in fifths is difficult. Robert Fripp uses CGDAEG (instead of CGDAEB) which is close to tuning in...
  20. Re: Total new guy intro and how to tune my new Eastwood WE tenor

    One of the reasons the tenor guitar is making a resurgence is that it can be played in many different ways (CGDA, GDAE, DGBE, as well as several open tunings). The versatility of the instrument is...
  21. Re: Best middle or lower-priced tenor guitar?

    The Ibanez Fox referenced is probably your best bang for the buck. I love my Blueridge BR-60T, but the Ibanez has a solid sitka spruce top, has good sound, and is half the price of the BR-60T.
  22. Re: Why the price jump/scarcity on Blueridge tenors?

    You are correct, Musicians Friend doesn't do a setup. When I bought mine the listed price was $499 but I bought during December when they were having a 25% off Christmas sale.
  23. Re: Acoustic Tenor Guitar and Low Tension String Recommendations

    Having lower tension strings shouldn't damage the guitar at all. The lower tension strings just won't bring out the full sound of the instrument.
  24. Re: Why the price jump/scarcity on Blueridge tenors?

    I bought my BR-60T four years ago from Musicians Friend for $375. I just checked the Musicians Friend website and the listed price is $895. Musicians Friend is currently offering 20% off which...
  25. Re: Acoustic Tenor Guitar and Low Tension String Recommendations

    When I was looking at setting my BR-60T up for DGBE, Saga Music (makers of Blueridge) assured me via email that the BR-60T could easily handle 100 total lbs. of tension. As Fox stated, the Blueridge...
