    Can't help you with a bigger baritone ukulele.

    The Kala KA-GTR is a wonderful short scale tenor guitar.

    LaBella Folksinger strings have ball ends. I don't know the gauges.

    Re: Gold tone vs Ibanez

    For a new ENTRY LEVEL guitar, the all laminate Ibanez PFT2 is the hands down winner at $200. The yet to be released Recording King may give it competition.

    A Baby Taylor case looks promising. I'd give it a look.

    Re: New second hand Kala

    You're most welcome.

    19p is around 18.5 lbs, 20p is around 20.5 lbs tension.

    No idea on a hard shell case. I'd explore Baby Taylor or GS Mini cases for compatibility.

    Good luck!

    Re: Alternate tunings?

    Hi Chels,

    The scale length of your Gold Tone OM 800+ is in tenor guitar range. Standard tenor tuning is CGDA.

    Here is a recommended set for 22.5" CGDA:

    I use these gauges regularly as...

    Couldn't agreed with fox more.

    Your initial 12-15-22-30 CGDA looked something like this:

    You can see it is not very balanced. A bit heavy on the high side and floppy on the low.

    More's the pity. At least you can sell it without losing too much or perhaps any money; it's so sought after.

    Re: Seagull steel ukulele

    If I am understanding the question correctly.

    Mandola tuning (CGDA) at 13.8" scale length would require: 15-22p-38w-54w string gauges for 74 lbs total - around 18 lbs each string.

    Re: Seagull steel ukulele

    Sorry I've never owned one of these or tried it. But I think you could look at it as an electric domra if tuned GDAE. Or a 4 string mandolin.

  19. Re: A quick and inexpensive way to try the tenor guitar

    Just an additional thought, but anyone entertaining the thought of buying one of these should probably look at it more as a steel string baritone ukulele more so than a tenor guitar - size wise.
  20. Re: A quick and inexpensive way to try the tenor guitar

    I doubt it will fit.

    Here are the dimensions:

    About 31 in long, lower bout about 10 3/4, upper bout about 7 3/4 in. My 21.5" Kala does not fit in it.

    Here's a $16.15 alternative, probably...
