    Re: Orville Gibson in sartorial splendor

    Unbelievable. This is my typical bedtime attire and looks exactly like my favorite pair of pajamas.

    Re: Stew-mac mini guitar kits on sale

    I've got all the makings for a CBG but for some reason never got around to giving it a go. I dunno, the price was right on this one and I liked the photos of the completed builds in the reviews on...

    Re: Tiny Moore electric 5-string lesson

    Yeah, I've had my eye on that fan fretted Tele style 5 string for awhile now. Sounds great.

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    I commissioned my Hodson Djangolin in 2001 back when I used to post here on Mandocafe more than I do now. I still have it but really only used it sparingly after the first few years of ownership. ...

    I suppose that it's entirely possible that it could be argued that had I truly understood your previous post then I probably wouldn't have asked the question.

    Re: Stew-mac mini guitar kits on sale

    Well, you've almost talked me out of ordering this kit. Would going a half step lower of dbAbEbBbGD work? If not, is there a re-entrantly tuned 6th string all fifth tunings that would work for this...

    Re: Stew-mac mini guitar kits on sale

    You're such a killjoy. You keep dashing my fifth tuning dreams! So close, yet so far. How is it that you determine 16.07 inch as minimal string length to prevent premature string breakage at Db?

    Re: Stew-mac mini guitar kits on sale

    Thanks for the feedback. I initially ignored this advice thinking that a high E at 16.3 inch scale would work but it sounds like it wouldn't. But what about giving it the Yank Rachell treatment and...

    Re: Stew-mac mini guitar kits on sale

    It looks like I missed the re-entrant part the first time. That makes sense too. I like that idea as well.



    I'm guessing that this question may have been asked once or twice before. (Please...

    Re: Stew-mac mini guitar kits on sale

    Yeah, with the 16.3 inch string length I was thinking that that would be perfect for a Mandola like range. It makes sense that the B string probably wouldn't work.



    I actually like this idea...

    Re: Stew-mac mini guitar kits on sale

    I've been considering the T-style kit and like the idea of trying it with (low to high) CGDAEB tuning considering the 16.3 inch scale but I'm just not sure about that high B string. Is this...

    I see that you are using iReal Pro. Lately, I've been proselytizing the merits of this app for practice to anyone who will listen. I first downloaded it years ago for practicing some...
