    Re: And just like that...

    Pics? I've always fancied that one.



    Learn tenor banjo or guitar. Until I got comfortable with the fretboard I found it best to think of my 5 as 2 instruments - a tenor and a mandolin. Over...

    Re: Recording Mandolin

    I don't own a smart phone so I'm the last person to ask about apps and things. I'm a video producer (trained in the old-days) so my outlook is more pro-leaning. You can get results with phones and...

    Re: Recording Mandolin

    Hi Donna1958 and welcome to the Cafe.

    While your questions appear simple on the surface, the situation is quite a bit more complex. Microphone choices and placement alone is a whole topic of...

    So sad. Condolences.

    We're chocking on the smoke up here in Vancouver.

    Re: Picking technique on electric mandolin?

    Pick-click is pick-click but it shouldn't come through a magnetic pickup like the ER has.

    I've adapted my picking style to avoid the scooped Florida on my acoustic and that carries over to the...

    Re: Kent wc26 mandolin pickup

    As noted above by nmiller, Japanese gear until the mid to late 70s was called "Jap Crap" because that's what it was. Kent's were on the lower rung.

    The reason they became so "popular" had nothing...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    So glad it worked out.

    The 2 mods I do on single-coil instruments are the parallel/series and phase-reversal. Both work on push-pulls so they are reversible.

    Phase-reversal gives a nasally tone...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Series/parallel switching can be easily done using a push-pull pot. And it's reversible.

    Seonachan - sounds like you're pickups were wired incorrectly. If these are being done by hand, which I...
  9. Re: $59,000 Reward for Missing Gibson Shipping Ledger

    Wasn't 59 a pivotal period for Gibson? IIRC it's the 59 Les Paul that's held up as the holy grail so I can see those records being of value beyond the legal. The company is over 100 years old, so...
  10. Re: $59,000 Reward for Missing Shipping Ledger

    59k for the 59 ledger seems about right to me as well.
  11. Re: $59,000 Reward for Missing Shipping Ledger

    The shipping ledger is probably the most accurate record of what models were shipped and when so it would be a gold mine for the trademark lawyers.

  13. Re: All of My 2020 Festivals Have Been Cancelled

    It's really sad for musicians. After the internet gutted music sales many saw their only real revenue streams coming from touring. Now that is gone. Will online compensate? Since that's been an...

    Re: 5 string tenor

    Wide spacing tends to be preferable when playing a lot of fingerstyle. Electric plectrum play I tend to favor closer strings.
  15. Re: Fender FM60E truss rod: single action or double action?

    Mine doesn't have a truss rod but it does have a substantial neck.

    Thinking back to when I got it used, the action was quite high and the pickups anemic. Basically the set-neck doesn't have any...
  16. Re: Fender FM60E truss rod: single action or double action?

    The FM60E is basically a small electric thinline guitar. Setup was a real bear but once dialed in they're very nice.

    Re: Lace Alumitone

    I've used Lace Sensor resonator pickups on 2 mandos. They work great with no balance issues I've noticed.

    Re: Favourite effects for electrics.

    I'm with you. I didn't know anything about or use any pedals for years. Then I met a fellow who wanted to start a pedal company and I got a crash-course in all things pedals.

    There are basically 3...

    Re: Tiny Moore electric 5-string lesson

    Fanned frets are a way to provide different length strings on a single instrument. I know this is a guitar, but a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Re: Electric mandolin

    You're getting into a "project" that is going to take time researching pickups, electronics and the sort then playing around to find the tonal sweet spot. Either you do it or you pay a tech. Beyond...

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    Godin has a different build and uses RMC piezo saddles and preamp, which are prolly the best of the best for piezo.

    El Rey is a rock machine to my eye. It's built more like an ES-335 than a...

    I just took a closer look and you're right, it's laminate.
  25. Re: A quick and inexpensive way to try the tenor guitar

    Appears to be a pretty good deal. I would guess it started life as a baritone uke based on the seller, but that's no different than the Kala.

    It does have an adjustable truss rod and what looks to...
