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

    Alex Bishop, but he's in the UK in my nearby city of Bristol, is a selmer/maccaferri sort of luthier - and he's made some serious kick a** GJ tenors :)

    As you might see, I personally like an...

    oh they had one for ages - but not any more!
  4. Re: Ashbury AM-240 Solid Body Electric Mandolin

    Ashbury can be quite variable in terms of playability. But had I spotted this earlier Bill, I'd have been happy to trial one for you as I'm in the UK near a Hobgoblin store.
    That said, I totally...

    meh. i sense the WE fretboard spec isn't dying any time soon :(
  6. Re: Banjo tuners on Gibson tenor and plectrum guitars

    I struggled enough teaching my slightly dyspraxic brain to restring on the mandolin's waverlies, without adding banjo tuners to the mix :)
    But I honestly prefer the aesthetic of "normal" tuners -...
  7. Re: Eastwood Classic Tenor - Experiences from other owners?

    Hi mate
    Wasn't that, but maybe the same guy - while back!
    Let's face it - people have been modding the fender teles with string trees etc and pickup swapping is soooo normal.
    And you're spot on...

    Re: Small amplifier

    well actually, if you take my (and I know they aren't cheap) AER Compact 60.3 - that does have a mic input on the second channel, but it's a dual use, as the normal jack socket is in the middle - and...

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    hey man thanks for that. Wondering whether to find one over here (UK) and give it a trial. I don't get feedback that often on the K&K, but I don't need all the mandolin anymore as I really only play...

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    Hey Verne, so compared to a K&K equipped acoustic thru a PA how'd you think this'll stack up? I seriously have been considering selling my f5 for cost reasons and replacing with the ERM
    You see...
  13. Re: The waiting begins: order in for Clark Octave

    it is to my considerable shame that i didn't get a 2nd hand clark gbom which came up not once but twice in the UK at Tamco - I had the readies & I panicked both times

    Mind you now I'm pretty much...
  14. Re: String recommendations for 1928 Gibson TG-0

    I have an occasionally problematic memory due to leaving my anaemia too long undiagnosed; makes it hard to get certain concepts too, but in the main, things like the calipers are great for me because...
  15. Re: String recommendations for 1928 Gibson TG-0

    if the current set on the guitar are good for you, why not get a set of digital callipers (with the screen) to measure the gauges, from Amazon or something - they are not expensive and useful for bad...

    Re: Recording King Tenor

    Yeah I always think you need something pretty decent to make CGDA not sound too plinky - GDAE is a very forgiving tuning. Just my opinion not necessarily a fact :)

    Re: Recording King Tenor

    Other members have, but I personally haven't. I've heard decent reports :)

    Ps musically, if we all arrived fully formed would it be as much fun? Learning & exploring - that's my idea of fun!

    Re: Today's Tenor Rumour Mill

    So.... I have actually had a try of this guitar.
    I'm really sorry I don't have decent pic (since this damn browser won't let me upload) or sounds, but as it's a prototype... seems unfair on the...
  19. Re: Interesting tenor/mandola builder

    Hm.
    It's hard for me to get excited by buying unseen when, if I want a decent reasonable tenor, there's hobgoblin music up the road from me. Interesting though!!

    Re: Kala and Ibanez

    Verne are you suggesting 23" scale isn't good for fifths??! When did that happen? :)
  22. Re: New Eastwood "Duo-Sonic" Style Tenor Guitar

    I wish they did have a little competition though.
    I picked up the WE 2p the other day... and nope... I just cannot bond with that wide neck. I get that it's cost effective for them to build this...

    Re: Martin with extra sound hole!

    Makes you realise how desperate some are to get a vintage Martin.
    I don't even play mine - but at least it doesn't have "a custom soundhole" - well not since one of its cracks got repaired :))

  25. Re: Gibson tg-50 archtop tenor guitar (1956)

    lovely isn't it. i saw that on instagram yesterday.

    they're thinner tops than the etg150 right? (for obvious reason, the etg is electric so has a thick old top!)
