    Re: Tendonitis and string gauges

    Very thoughtful of you, my thanks (and from others, I expect). Thankfully, this is not an issue for me. I have many others :grin: So far, though, the move to the flat wounds and dropping the saddle...

    Re: Tendonitis and string gauges

    I agree, and have that ebook, too. I keep a set of feeler gauges nearby so I can keep the action dialed in pretty well. It's amazing how much it moves over the seasons here in New England. I saw that...

    Thanks a lot for suggesting this, which I own and somehow had not thought to look at, recently. This is really useful information to roll into practice time.

    Re: Tendonitis and string gauges

    It does help, thank you. Of course, I need to experiment with them. The EFWs I put on are definitely easier on the fingers and (so far), seem less stressful but who knows? Maybe I'm subconsciously...

    Re: Tendonitis and string gauges

    OK, thanks. I have heard about them over the years. I just put on these EFWs and already can tell that I like them, so when they go, I'll give your suggestion a try. They aren't cheap so I'll have...

    Re: Tendonitis and string gauges

    Thanks, and interesting. I just jotted down the gauges for the 73s, 74s, the EFWs and the Mangan Monels. The last three all have the same gauges EXCEPT for the bass string which drops from 40 to 36...

    Re: Tendonitis and string gauges

    Thanks a lot, Pete. I know the setup is good and I check it often and tweak as needed. I did experience this same issue mid-Pandemic, when I was playing a lot every day, so yes, I think that is the...

    Tendonitis and string gauges

    This could be a bit of a DUH question and I understand that there are lots of things that go on here but in very general terms, all things being equal, would you folks image there to be less stress...

  12. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    Gryphon was selling it on eBay last week - very similar to the one mentioned here, yesterday, but it was a 1953. Here's the original listing:...
  13. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    Very interesting! Thank you, I'll dive in on this one. Luckily, there are two great builders in Vermont who could help bring this back at a reasonable price. Thanks a lot for the heads up. Currently...

  15. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    Scotty! Good to hear from you, amigo. And, thank you. I also had my eye on one of those Northfields. Joe K. Walsh uses one in the Peghead Octave class I took and it sounds great. Nothing to do with...
  16. If anyone is looking for an amazing Mandola....

    Heiden. I played it at The Music Emporium, yesterday. It's not on their website yet. I was just taking a break before the 2-3 hour drive home to Vermont and stopped in to browse. I was completely...
  17. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    Thank you! I should have been more specific as I am actually hoping to locate a tenor archtop. Hey, I like a challenge. Have my eye on an Apitius but his build schedule is out on 2023....
  18. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    I didn't claim that this was question with great logic involved :-) but in New England where everything has to be humidified through long winters, floor space becomes a bit of an issue in a small...

    Re: Found a decent case for my Eastman OM

    I got one of those too but the chemical smell was really strong, so I returned it. Maybe it was just the one I got. It did fit well, though.

    Boy, had to search low and high. I got close with one at Elderly at an OK price but the shipping put it over $200. I need something for New England winter humidification. Anyway, just got this case...

    Re: Thumb Pain

    These thumb pain issues do suck as someone said. Don't forget to check your string height. I have recently discovered that both on my go to mandolin and a recently acquired octave mandolin, the...

    I did replace the bridge pins, forgot to mention that. Personal preference but I got to the point that I used "no more than $250 invested" as a target. No particular reason. What it has done is to...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Just got the recommended case and it fits great. I wouldn't too it from a truck but more than OK for in house humidification in dry months. Thanks a lot for the suggestion kmmando and Huck!
