  1. Re: New Eastwood Newport Tenor Guitar Funding

    Is there really much of a market for a new, single-pickup solid-body electric guitar - tenor or otherwise? I get that some established models will have their appeal, but this seems limiting. The last...

    Re: Intonation on Blueridge BR-60T

    Bad intonation can have several causes. Is the sharpness and "bending" effect most acute at the first few frets? If so, the first thing I would check is the nut slots. If they are too high, that will...

    Re: String spacing?

    The Tenorcaster also has a wide spacing at the bridge. The Map tenor is narrower (you can see it uses a standard 6-string bridge). Of the others I've played, the Delta also had a wider spacing. The...

    Re: String spacing?

    Some electric tenor models have wider string spacing, esp. some of the Eastwoods.

    Re: Mini Jazzmaster HH

    I was looking at these when they first came out but the initial reviews were pretty abysmal. Hopefully they've improved production standards since then.

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    I would adjust the nut first, independently of the saddle (e.g. holding each string at the 3rd fret and checking the action at the 1st fret). If you still need to adjust the saddle after that, it...

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    Check this thread for lots of advice on gauges. I used a John Pearse set, and it sounds and feels very good.

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    I got one yesterday from Elderly - for the price I'm very impressed. I got it as a cheap tenor that I could leave at my folks' house without having to worry much about humidification and other...

    Re: Tenor tuning - EBF#C#?

    I play in FCGD, and I know a few others on here do. This tuning is only 1/2 step lower, so there's no reason why it wouldn't work with the right combination of guitar & strings.
  10. Re: just starting out - what are my string options?

    That Chord Bible series has editions for CGDA & GDAE among many others.

    Re: Mini Tele Conversion to Five-String

    No problems, other than tuning issues caused by the tremolo, which are not relevant to a Tele.

    Re: Mini Tele Conversion to Five-String

    Jake Wildwood made me up a 5-stringer from a Squier Strat. He drilled holes above & between the existing holes.

  14. Re: just starting out - what are my string options?

    Any of the common tenor tunings are amenable to jazz. If you're looking for learning materials, there isn't a ton of stuff in any tuning, but you can find chord books, beginner lessons, etc. in CGDA...
  15. Re: just starting out - what are my string options?

    How do you want to tune it? That will guide your choice of string gauges. DGBE, CGDA, GDAE, other?

    New used cheapo 5 string partscaster

    Made a trip to Jake Wildwood's yesterday, primarily to have him put together this 5-stringer from old Squier parts. He drilled new holes in the bridge, removed a saddle and a tuner, slotted the nut,...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Made a visit to Jake Wildwood yesterday for some other work, and brought the Tele - he fixed up the wiring and it sounds much better now.

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Series is the beefier mode. I prefer parallel, but wiring it out of phase sort of goes in the opposite direction from series - it gives a thin, nasal tone. If I knew my way around the inside of a...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Has anyone checked the pickup wiring on theirs? When mine is in middle position it really sounds like it's wired out of phase. But in all the video demos I've seen of it, it sounds pretty similar. It...

    Re: Some Questions on New Purchase

    A 19" scale is a little longer than most mandolas and a little shorter than most octave mandos, so it will accommodate both CGDA and GDAE tunings pretty well. Most tenor guitars are ~23" but that's...

    Different tastes, different ears, and variable conditions of vintage Martins notwithstanding, I don't think it's really a comparison. I've A/B'd both in a store and owned both at the same time. The...
