  1. Re: Getting started with tenor, looking at an electric tenor

    I have a Fanner "Jazzy" electric baritone uke (19" scale) that I picked up used. It's very nice - I was impressed enough to order a solid body 20" Ocelot baritone direct from them (I'm calling it a...

    Re: Source for single monel guitar strings?

    I went down this path a couple years ago, after discovering Martin retros for my 6-string, and also wound up getting a few Curt Mangan packs to piece together a set for my 0-17T. I didn't like the...

    A couple odd tenors on ebay

    A couple interesting-looking 4-string guitars on ebay right now. NFI and I'm not buying, but I guess I'm happy to know they exist in the world:

    Earnest Rosetta on Reverb

    A 3-pickup Earnest Rosetta just popped up on my Reverb feed. Pretty. NFI.

    Re: Vintage Gretsch Duo-Jet tenor

    That one's been bouncing around different GC stores for a while, I think it started out in Los Angeles? (unless there have been multiple Duo Jet tenors at GC). I guess either there's something wrong...

    Re: HB Tenor Guitar

    Some of the older Martin 5's had 12-fret neck joins. I have a 5-17T like that - I think the change was during the 1929 production year (for that specific model at least). I was able to compare mine...

    Re: My Blueridge Woes - Part II

    If for some reason the groove in the bridge pin is too wide, and that's what's causing the string to pop out, you can turn the pin so the string isn't aligned with the groove. I saw someone somewhere...

    Re: Ibanez Tenors appear discontinued

    I ordered one from Elderly and it was set up well enough - I did make some minor adjustments but it was certainly playable. I'd recommend ordering one from them or another trusted source that will...

    Re: And now for something completely different

    Same builder's sold listings show some tenors that are even more "out there". Not very pricey, kind of tempting to get one just to experience it in person.

  11. Re: New Eastwood Newport Tenor Guitar Funding

    Is there really much of a market for a new, single-pickup solid-body electric guitar - tenor or otherwise? I get that some established models will have their appeal, but this seems limiting. The last...

    Re: Intonation on Blueridge BR-60T

    Bad intonation can have several causes. Is the sharpness and "bending" effect most acute at the first few frets? If so, the first thing I would check is the nut slots. If they are too high, that will...

    Re: String spacing?

    The Tenorcaster also has a wide spacing at the bridge. The Map tenor is narrower (you can see it uses a standard 6-string bridge). Of the others I've played, the Delta also had a wider spacing. The...

    Re: String spacing?

    Some electric tenor models have wider string spacing, esp. some of the Eastwoods.

    Re: Mini Jazzmaster HH

    I was looking at these when they first came out but the initial reviews were pretty abysmal. Hopefully they've improved production standards since then.

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

    I would adjust the nut first, independently of the saddle (e.g. holding each string at the 3rd fret and checking the action at the 1st fret). If you still need to adjust the saddle after that, it...

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

    Re: Tenor tuning - EBF#C#?

    I play in FCGD, and I know a few others on here do. This tuning is only 1/2 step lower, so there's no reason why it wouldn't work with the right combination of guitar & strings.

    That Chord Bible series has editions for CGDA & GDAE among many others.

    No problems, other than tuning issues caused by the tremolo, which are not relevant to a Tele.

    Jake Wildwood made me up a 5-stringer from a Squier Strat. He drilled holes above & between the existing holes.

  24. Re: just starting out - what are my string options?

    Any of the common tenor tunings are amenable to jazz. If you're looking for learning materials, there isn't a ton of stuff in any tuning, but you can find chord books, beginner lessons, etc. in CGDA...
  25. Re: just starting out - what are my string options?

    How do you want to tune it? That will guide your choice of string gauges. DGBE, CGDA, GDAE, other?
