    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    Hello - expecting to receive a new Ibanez Parlor tenor today. First one was damaged in shipping. They ship CGDA and I know that I will definitely want to try GDAE. My experience moving to heavier...

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    That's good information, thank you. I have the new tuners and the reamer as well as bridge pins. Just go slow with the reamer, I assume? And also, another assumption is to ream to the depth of the...
  4. Re: Eastwood Classic Tenor - Experiences from other owners?

    Hi - not from the UK and FWIW, I have an Eastwood mandocaster and I had good success with two upgrades. 1. I bought new pickups from Almuse in your own UK (pete@peteandsue.force9.co.uk). Pete is a...

    Thank you!. I did determine they were Philips but knowing they are #1, I'll get a better screwdriver at the hardware store tomorrow. Don't want to strip them. Thank you again.

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    John - I am planning to replace the tuners. How did you get the old ones off? Man those are small screws! I think they're Philips heads but could be Allens. I need a magnifying glass!

    Re: Fender Tenor Tele Hard Case/Gig Bag

    Folks - good info., thanks. Specs say upper bout cavity is 9.25" and I'm measuring closer to 9.75" on my Tenor. Problem? If it's a tight fit, that's good, obviously but there's a limit :)

    Response from Rob, just now:

    Hi Shaun,

    You are definitely on the right track. I'm assuming you can remove the saddle, sand it down, and put it back in place. Don't be too aggressive - take...

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    Thanks for these replies, interesting. Rob Meldrum's free ebook on mandolin set up describes reducing saddle height after other things are set up and I've done that successfully with two mandolins. I...

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    If the nut seems good and the 12th fret is high (1.100), then it seems like the direction would be to sand roughly .500 off the bottom off the saddle. I've done stuff like this before, so no big...

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    Well this has been a good learning experience for me. I got the ROST-7-TS yesterday and as I said elsewhere, the truss rod was cranked all the way to the right. All 4 strings were hitting most of the...

    Re: Scale length consistency

    Thanks for these late night responses - much appreciated. Yes, I think I'll just put cash on the barrelhead and get a god setup, then play for a while. If I'm really taken with it, then I can...

    Scale length consistency

    Hi folks - perhaps a very basic question. If two tenor guitars each have a 23" scale, would the note to note and chord to chord reaches be pretty similar? I ask because I really love GDAE tuning and...

    I'm having a similar experience. I just did 4-5 big turns to the left and it's better but not perfect. Will let it sit overnight then see.

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    Expecting mine today and I will definitely be tuning GDAE. What string gauges would anyone suggest, please? Or string set if that makes more sense. My buddy down the road - an excellent luthier -...

    That's gonna be nice. A while back, I asked Max to build an F5 for me (I have a wonderful Girouard A5, now 2 years old). I met Max in 2013 at a Mando Festival and bought an A5 he had with him, then...

    Thanks to both of you for this information. I'm assuming that some setup will be required and possibility a nut swap. It'll be good to have these numbers handy. I recently got a Fender Tenor...
