    Another topic-has anyone tried mandola tuning on this Fender? Johnny Gimble style?
    Not that specific one but I have 2 CGDA tuned magnetic pickup 4 strings, 1, a solid body
    and other, a Gibson EM 150. with a different bridge and nut made.

    I use an .050" for the C

    So, I did give it a try. Mandola tuning. Bought a set for electric 5 string, put away the E string and there you are. The bridge saddles barely moved back far enough to intonate, and I had to adjust the nut for C and G strings, but it works very well. I’ve ordered a 4saddle bridge for it, but intonation is pretty close as is. It doesn’t feel loose at all.
