    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Most tenor banjo sets won’t have a heavy enough G string, best to use guitar singles or use a banjo set with and just buy a 42 G string.

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Could somebody please tell me the exact string spacing at the nut and at the saddle. Just the total distance between the outer stings preferably in mms.
