  1. Re: Fender FM60E 5 string electric mando intonation...

    I had quite a time getting mine to intonate as well. I took it to my tech who:

    - shortened the C-string spring so the saddle can move back further (as noted eariler), and
    - did some work to get...
  2. Re: Eastwood Mandocaster - bad string level balance

    Sure, but I don't think that's not going to accomplish much. On these cheap instruments the pickup pole pieces are all the same. It isn't until you get into the customs like Almuse that they vary the...

    Thanks - I see them on the usa site from those links.

    Anyone know where the PFT1 went?

    Ibanez Tenors appear discontinued.

    I took a look at Ibanez's 2021 offerings and don't see any tenor guitars in the lineup.

    Of the two they did have, the parlour would...
  5. Re: Ibanez AVT1NT Artwoods Series Tenor Guitar

    Those are nice. Enjoy.

    I think they should have done these as 12 frets to the body, not 14. That would move the bridge into the middle of the body which should yield a fuller, louder tone.

    Re: Mini Jazzmaster HH

    That means they'll end up going cheap.

    With a few upgrades I'd do anyway - machines, pickups, electronics, bridge/nut, setup - I'm thinking they can be made into a player. All I really would be...

    Re: Mini Jazzmaster HH

    I'd leave the neck but do a new nut and bridge for a 5-string tenor. I like wide spacing anyway.

    It's not far from a tenor Jaguar and I like the colors.

  9. Re: Eastwood Classic Tenor - Experiences from other owners?

    That's unfortunate as it's the only Eastwood tenor I've fancied so far.

    Here's a quick fix. If the buzzing goes away when you put your hand on the strings then you need to ground them. The easy...

    Re: Metal Mandolins

    I had a Republic Mandolian, which I believe uses the same body as the Recording King and Johnson. The key difference is the Republic has an adjustable truss rod, the others don't so warping and...
  11. Re: Eastwood Classic Tenor - Experiences from other owners?

    According to the way you're explaining it, it sounds like you have a grounding problem.

    The most common reason for this is the wire connecting the strings (via the bridge/tailpiece) to ground...
  12. Re: WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals...

    Since context is everything, imagine the meaning the line, "This product can expose you to chemicals...", would have conjured up in the 60s and 70s music scene?
  13. WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals...

    Okay, now I've seen everything (so far).

    Musician's Friends "Stupid Deal of the Day" is for a cheap Rogue mandolin. That's nothing special, but this is the first time I've seen a warning for a...

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

    FWIW I've setup tons of guitars and mandolins and it has always been a back and forth. It takes time for everything to settle in so expect to keep adjusting for 6-9 months - longer if you live in a...

    Mini Guitar kits

    Got an email today about StewMac's new Mini LP-style guitar. They also have Mini Strats and Teles.

    Specs say they are 16.3" scale, which puts them in the Mandola range. I am able to tune my Les...

    Thanks for your review sounds_good. All the things you mention are to be expected at this price point. These days makers are using PLEK equipment more and more for fret...
  17. Re: What's the difference between Tenor and guitar tuned in fifth

    I picked up 2 PeeWees off CL over the years. Both for super cheap. People bought these for their kids and many were never played so they get offed as toys. They have real necks, frets and all so...
  18. Re: What's the difference between Tenor and guitar tuned in fifth

    I don't think so. I broke a lot of strings getting this tuning to work. I almost got it to E Cb Gb Db Ab Eb but the high string would break just before I got there. That last semi-tone is the killer....
  19. Re: What's the difference between Tenor and guitar tuned in fifth

    That depends on the scale. My 19" Les Paul Pee Wee is tuned in straight 5ths - Eb Bb F C G D - with no re-entrants. The D is and 8 gauge and the Eb is pretty thick, but it works and plays great.

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    It's designed for Chicago tuning, which is E standard minus the lower 2 strings, so it shouldn't be too hard to transition. You can tune it in 5ths but the fret marker is in the wrong place which...

    Re: Eastwood Mando Guitar

    Thanks Huck. I like the idea but some of the design choices are a bit off to my eye. I'd also prefer a short-scale 21", as do a lot of other tenor players. Not sure why nobody is doing that as it's a...
