  5. Re: tenor guitar strings for GDAE tunning

    Here’s what I use:

    For a 23” scale, D’Addario EJ80
    For a 21” Scale, D’Addario EJ72

    If you need ball end, you can buy them as bulk singles from JustStrings.

    Thanks,

    I had my middle position swapped (after I made my review) to the beefier sound, much improved in my opinion, but I know some folks like the way that middle position sounds normally. Series and...

  11. Re: New Session King guitar-octave mandolin on the bench

    Beautiful instrument! Seems like you've got a pretty wide saddle on there. I'm assuming thats for intonation flexibility. Do you find that the width of the saddle has any effect on tone?
