    Re: NS Micro Tuner

    I like them and use them on mandos, guitars and resonators. They aren't great in sunlight. I did get a polytune for my main mandolin, as it seems better during outdoor, sunny gigs.

    Many 12 fret guitars have standard, or "long" scale lengths. My Martin 000-28 GE, same as a dred. Nor are all small bodies with short scale. I have a 2-17 with standard scale. I do have a short scale...

    Re: Replacement Pickup for GME-4

    So the pickup arrived today and I put it in...What a difference! It's a true single coil, unlike the stacked "humbucker" that's the stock pickup on the Gold Tone. The almuse is louder, much more...

    Replacement Pickup for GME-4
