    Re: Old vs New Oval

    When I was shopping archtop ovals, I tried the new hybrids and the old traditional tubby sounding ones and went with the traditional sound. Tubby is the common phrase, but I would also use the terms...

    Re: Intonation on Blueridge BR-60T

    Pressing too hard will bend sharp, but typically is more pronounced near the nut where the frets are farther apart.

  3. Thinking about learning fingerstyle on a tenor

    Never learned it before, now that I have a tenor, it seems like a thing to do. I feel like I should have a Martin though. :-)

    Re: Eastman MD305 = AMAZING!

    I have both 305 (and 604 which is a blinged up 304), and the 604 is my main player due to the music styles I prefer (classical and gospel).

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

    Interesting thread. Only contribution I can make is I like a wound A (in GDAE) on a tenor, it sounds a lot better to me than a PS A when strumming chords.

    Davy Stuart custom getting closer

    Over a year ago I commissioned a custom Davy Stuart build, it's larger bodied version of his 18" scale flat-top mandola, intended to be strung as a 4-stringer. Basically a super-short-scale tenor...
