    Re: 8 string tenor guitar Pono MND30

    the 23" scale frets like butter. I imagine the 21" would be soft as well with the right string set. I use silk n steel wounds for the D and G along with thomastik Infeld .016, .024 and .025 wound...

    vintage 0-18t's are nice but do not sound any better than mine. I get to compare them almost daily and I don't have to deal with the cracks and resets.
