  5. Re: Cheap & Cheerfull Tenor Conversion question

    Yes I remember following that thread. It is similar to what I intend to do. My concern is do the $30 3/4 cheapies have a fretboard that I can remove, or should I spend $35 for a 4/4 to be sure but I...
  6. Re: Cheap & Cheerfull Tenor Conversion question

    Yes to the taper but I only play on the first 9 frets. The saddle won’t matter I’ll string the middle 4
  7. Re: Cheap & Cheerfull Tenor Conversion question

    I’m thinking of pulling off the fretboard & cutting out a V strip down the middle right down through the headstock to a point at the heel. Then glue it together & while the fretboard is off explore...
  8. Cheap & Cheerfull Tenor Conversion question

    I’m considering purchasing a very basic model, nylon 3/4 guitar from China I think the postage is going to be dearer than the guitar. It will be 23” scale (may also get a 24 1/2”as well), laminated...

    I just put a set (kr116) onto my €3:50 nylon 23” GDAE. I had a set of daddario folk nylons on it. With the kr116’s the sound is different alright! I used the G .025 for my A but it is too loud for...

    Re: Flourocarbon Stinrgs?

    Another little tip for stringing banjos with nylons (I only play in fifths), the top plain string works well in steel just like violins, violas & cellos. Sometimes I have to file the bridge so the...
