    Wow what a shame, hopefully you can find out what is going on ... I guess he wants to avoid the PayPal and eBay charges?

  7. Re: DGBE (Chicago) Tuning: A and Bb/A# chords are weird

    Well I dont know where you live? They are available as singles in the Uk and quite common in GDAE tenor banjo sets.

  8. Re: DGBE (Chicago) Tuning: A and Bb/A# chords are weird

    A good even tension set would be 12 16 20 30 but the blueridge is well braced for higher tension so 13 17 22 32 is a popular choice.
    You can try a wound B string in 16-17 to get an interesting sound.

  10. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    There will always be a limit as to what can be achieved with a small body and four strings, I don’t think tenor guitars are about huge volume.
    The session king tenor guitars offers a large body...
  11. Re: New and recent Tenor, best than vintage Martin's and Gibson ?

    Abused but somehow better than new.
    Tatty but cool.
    Beaten but rebellious.
    Old but desirable.
  12. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    I don’t know why you are so interested in volume but the second tenor guitar in the video is the loudest one I have ever built but the first guitar is still louder than a standard Blueridge I know...

  14. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    Well the bracing under the soundboard is accessible through the sound hole and can be altered to allow more movement but any such work would immediately remove any guarantee the guitar might have....
  15. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    I don’t think you would be disappointed with the sound or volume.

    Similar size tenor guitars that I have built are generally speaking slightly louder and have a different tone but not a by a huge...
  16. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    I have never been able to find much information about the Blueridge factory but I would assume it operates very high tech machinery to be able to produce such superb guitars.

    All thier range has...
  17. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    There may be others I am not family with but it will be hard to beat the Blueridge BRT range as a 23” scale steel string tenor guitar.

    Re: Are tenor guitars slightly evil?

    I was happily strumming a six string when someone said a tenor banjo would suit me so being gullible I bought one and via a forum discovered there was a guitar version..... never looked back.

    Re: Nylon strings on Blueridge BR40T?

    I guess it is a matter of perspective as to what you like and what works for you, there are lots of people using classical guitar strings on tenor guitars.

  20. Re: Bought Blueridge 40-T half price on Amazon -Can't find any is

    That sounds like a good bargain scratch or no scratch !
    That model, would cost around $500 around my way without a case.

    Re: Nylon strings on Blueridge BR40T?

    Well you could take your Blueridge to a luthier and ask him (her) to modify the bracing and set it up for nylon.
    That would be a good compromise although not the perfect answer.

    Re: Nylon strings on Blueridge BR40T?

    You cant expect a guitar designed to work with steel strings to perform at its best with low tension nylon, the Blueridge is already a sturdy guitar.
    But of course you can try out what ever you...
