    Re: Playing a five string vs a four

    Pretty much.

    Think jazz - diads and triads vs big open chords. Comp on the lower 3 and solo on the upper.

    Re: Eastman ERM El Rey

    mrmando - How does it balance with a strap?

    I love the El Rey guitars but the design makes them very neck-heavy and am curious if the problem persists on the mando.

    You mention it would be nice...

    Re: Eastman ERM El Rey

    It should be relatively simple for Lollar to put screw poles in these custom made pickups if Eastman asks.

    The problem with getting "the correct pole height dialed in" at the factory is that it...

    Re: Eastman ERM El Rey

    If Duncan can do adjustable pole pieces I see no reason why Lollar can't, especially on a custom build. Thanks again for the review.

    Re: Eastman ERM El Rey

    Thanks Martin. Good review with a couple of notes.

    While you say the El Rey deviates from other offerings that are of the "shrunken guitar" variety it is a shrunken Eastman El Rey guitar so it's...
  6. Re: Electric Mandolin Ashtray Bridge Cover

    Good story. Thanks for sharing. Good luck in your quest.

    Pictures?
  7. Re: Electric Mandolin Ashtray Bridge Cover

    They make it close to impossible to palm mute so most players toss them. You have a wall-hanger in need?

    I use a Vox Amplug into a Sony srsx5. Very portable and sounds great!

  9. Re: 4-string emando, what’s the best out there?

    If your 5 is a solid body, which I assume it is, removing the C will have little to no effect. Hollow-bodies have a fair bit of give under tension whereas the idea of a solid body is to provide a...
  10. Re: 4-string emando, what’s the best out there?

    You could probably fit a humbucker in the mandostang. If you're really adventurous you could route it for 2 humbuckers and really rock.

    After I got confused with my 5-string I spent some time with...

    Re: Ashbury Resonator

    Like ^^ Allen says.

    FWIW I have the Republic version of that. I believe they all come out of the same factory whose whereabouts is shrouded in secrecy - Asia somewhere I would imagine.

    Re: Ten String Electric Thinline Design

    I had a chance to play a fanned-fret tenor a while back and didn't like it. It works in theory but it just made forming shapes really awkward. If Tavy says it doesn't add any technical value, then...
  13. Re: 4-string emando, what’s the best out there?

    dang - have you tried your Mann with the low string removed? The low C really threw me off at first. Maybe try it as a 4 and see what you think of the instrument.

    I have a 5 string Fender electric...
  14. Re: Total new guy intro and how to tune my new Eastwood WE tenor

    I tune my 6 string Les Paul Pee Wee in 5ths - Eb Bb F C G D - and prefer it over a 4 string tenor because it is far more versatile. I have more range than a standard tuned 6 string and it goes higher...
  15. Re: Total new guy intro and how to tune my new Eastwood WE tenor

    There are very few tenors available at the best of times and using one of the precious few to replicate what can be done on one of a multitude of 6-string guitars does come across to me as more than...
  16. Re: Total new guy intro and how to tune my new Eastwood WE tenor

    While it defeats the purpose of a tenor, there are certainly benefits for guitar players choosing a short scale tenor for comping and soloing.

    But for me the magic is in 5th tuning. If I want to...

    Re: NEMD Eastman Mandostang

    I put a couple of Artec's like that in my Fender FM60E. Korea or Chinese made. Work very well. I have a more expensive Seymour Duncan Lil 59'er in my strat and these are certainly as good. More...

    Re: Headphones recommendations?

    Consumer wireless communicate via Bluetooth which is a hyper compressed format. All wireless formats use some form of compression which neuters the sound. If you like the sound of MP3's - which are...

    Re: Favourite overdrive?

    I've tried a lot but have settled on the Vox Satchurator. Goes from nothing to in-your-face-metal. Tone knob is particularly useful.
  24. Re: Why the price jump/scarcity on Blueridge tenors?

    To understand the Chinese business model one must go back a few decades and look at Hong Kong. China has had (in the past at least) a policy of 100% employment. That meant they often had factories...
