    Re: Mandolin tuning on a ukulele

    There are several uke players who play in this tuning. Most IIRC were classical players - i.e. fingerstyle, not strummed. The sound is more like a classical guitar than either a mando or a uke, IMO.

    Re: Harwood mandolins and guitars

    Mick, I may have asked you this before, but do any of the instruments in your files match any of the Payne Music School photo instruments?

    Re: 53 Harmony Tenor

    OT, but do any of you Harmony heads know if they offered a tenor in the Catalina or Hollywood finish? Being from LA I've always been drawn to those, but didn't want/need a six stringer.

    If not,...

    Re: Roy Smeck Harmony Tenor

    The Vita instruments I've seen have all had beautiful flame mahogany back and sides. For $500 Canadian (assuming the "cracks" have been "stabilized") not a bad deal.

    Re: Maestro mandocello

    That thing is not a mandocello, it is (or is attempting to be) a mandole, traditionally used for Algerian Chaabi music. I suppose it could be tuned and used as a mandocello, but I believe the scale...

    Re: OM style

    Nothing to add, except like Bertram I too was immediately tickled by the idea of an OM without any style..

    Or even better (for you Martin guitar fans), an OM-style OM. :p

    Re: "mini bouzouki"

    I think the octave tuning (in a blues context) was called "Brownsville Tuning".

    Re: Rigel A Natural

    Neither; I thought it was stupid to risk such a lowball bid (thinking it would go for much higher on the open market). But I may be proven wrong if it sells below the BIN price. NFI

    Well, it will, just not for the BIN price. Whoever put that first bid in (instead of just buying it) was... not smart.

    My suggestion was not intended for a commercial venture, but technically, Bill is correct. Some online tshirt printers will not print copyrighted designs as well.
