    Re: Fender Tenor Tele - First Impressions

    Nice job, thanks! Sounds great and they really got the look right. Bummer about the ninth fret marker, but otherwise that thing is pretty sweet.

    Mine's in a TKL A-style arched case and it fits extremely well, good support.

    Re: DIY Speed Neck? Advice Needed

    I'd start slow and just sand down the gloss to see how that feels. No guarantee that the full speed neck will work better for you when you sweat. And you'd likely lose some stability, though perhaps...
  6. Re: New bridge for Octave Mandolin? (low action, buzzing, spacing

    I'd go Brekke, personally. My old Gallatin has his original design and my Sage flattop octave has one of his fixed bridges. They are, quite frankly, perfect in use and true works of art. The man...
  7. Re: man I need a good tuner foot pedal model. not clip on

    If I was looking for a floor tuner, I'd go with a Sonic Research model. Their readout is super fast, accurate and intuitive. I've had the original bench model for many years.

    Re: Mandolin Stand Recommendations

    The Ultimate GS100 was a great stand. I also modified one for mandolin and it's been perfect. But the last GS100 I bought a few months ago, is a total piece of cr@p! They loosened their tolerances...

    Re: Where should the fret dots be?

    I much prefer a mark at the 10th versus the 9th when tuned in fifths.

    My two favorites are the HAO Sole Pressure for light, and the Smallsound/Bigsound Mini for heavier.

    Re: So, thinking about an octave oval hole

    If you haven't already tried playing a longer scale octave, don't necessarily dismiss the option. The longer strings (my Weber is 23.5) ring very nicely. Either way you'll be stretching.
  13. Re: Weber Gallatin F weight & action vs. other entry-level mandol

    I have an older Gallatin F that I bought used here, maybe 5 or 6 years ago. I still love it and don't really covet another (well, MAS is always knocking I suppose). Mine plays and sounds great - it's...

    That would be perfect, grab it at that great price!

    Hi Bruce. Just want to say that my '01 maple Gallatin F remains an absolutely wonderful instrument. Never fails to make me smile - thanks for that!

    Re: Mandobird bridge saddle set screws

    I hate when they stick up. You can Dremel and file them. For my 4-sting Mandobird, I bought a set of Graphtech saddles, which came with properly sized height screws. I like them very much.

    Re: Finish chip on Weber... question???

    My 2001 Gallatin came to me about 6 years ago with a finish chip along the fingerboard edge. It hasn’t enlarged or changed in all that time. Looks like yours could be easily touched up if it bugs...

    Re: SNARK ST-2 Super Tight Clip On Tuner

    Snarks are cool, I’ve been using them for years and have several. But I recently decided to try the Unitune and frankly, it is superior. Not ditching my Snarks or anything, but the Uni is now my...

    Re: Eastwood LP tenor

    Yeah for me that is definitely a tempting tenor. My two favorite guitars (a ‘68 LP and a Hamer Artist) both have P90s. I love the P90 punch. Hope you receive a primo example!
  21. Re: Weber Bridger Octave vs Weber Bitteroot Oval Octave?

    I absolutely love the tone of the Bridger in the Sierra and Uldry youtube videos. I’d love to try one some day. I recently bought a Sage #1 and it’s a wonderful instrument, really a joy to play. Not...

    Two Strad-o-lins by one seller, at 375 and 300... I’ll bet you live in CT! Those have been on CL for a little while.

    It’s super-fun to play. Just want to add this photo, in case anyone’s interested in how they carve the two-piece neck. I really like the fit.

    Re: New OM Day

    Thanks. It’s in great shape, the only sign of age being a little wear on the first few frets under the E course and some nice darkening of the top. The pinky cleanly stopping both G strings is gonna...
