  1. Tunes At Home: Music In A Time Of Need

    Hi All! Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, many of our dear friends have had shows, tours, and project cancelled. This is a huge hit to those who depend on this work for a living. To this end,...
  2. Re: Anyone have information on this very unique bowlback?

    I totally agree, they are meant to be played. It also makes sense to know what it is worth so the player can decide for themselves and have a sense of its value and importance, which can help with...

    I googled his name and found an email address on his website.

    Jim: As far I know it was played by the older generaltion, and she does want to learn to play as well, but wasn't sure how valuable this might be and if she should look for something more reasonably...
  6. Anyone have information on this very unique bowlback?

    I was at a friends house and got the classic "I've got a mandolin from an older family member, wanna see it?". My answer is always yes, and this time it really paid off! Anyone seen anything like...

  8. Re: string gauges for 23" scale electric OM?

    I’m using 46 32 22 12, which is about as heavy as I’d want to go. I also drop to FCGD with those gauges and it still sounds and feels great.

    Thanks,

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Cool, I’ll keep you posted!

    There’s a lake placid and a butterscotch on reverb now.
  11. Re: What under $1200 used tenors would you look at?

    I'd keep your eyes out for a players grade pre 1967 0-18T. Set up ebay and reverb alerts and put a wanted ad in the classifieds here and on UMGF. They're out there, and I think the spruce topped...

    Thanks for those production numbers, very interesting!

    Re: What's The One That Got Away?

    There was a screaming good deal on a Red Diamond A style in the classifieds about 6 months ago. I hesitated too long and it went fast, not surprisingly. I can't complain because I've already got the...

    As in they have made as many as they are going to and have stopped production?

  17. Re: Fender Tenor Tele - First Impressions

    Weight: Not sure and my scale just broke this morning :(

    String Tree: Still toying with the idea of adding one, but haven't yet, it is certainly playable as is.

  19. Re: Fender Tenor Tele - First Impressions

    I pre-ordered early and was even bumped off a list and scrambled to find one of the last ones in stock. It definitely required acting fast. I hope you can find one!

  20. Re: Fender Tenor Tele - First Impressions

    Cheapish gig bag that also comes with the mini strat. Nothing to write home about but does the job. I hope I can find a better solution down the road.
  21. Re: Fender Tenor Tele - First Impressions

    Yes, frets are great. The hum does stop when either hand makes contact with metal.

    Thanks,

  22. Re: Fender Tenor Tele - First Impressions

    My guess is they couldn't get a string tree and the fender script all stuffed onto the tiny headstock so they went for the branding, but I could be wrong. Adding an aftermarket string tree might be...

    Re: Mystery Mandolin Oddity!

    it was about $175 shipped. I'm fairly happy considering I had no idea what I was going to get in terms of playability.
