    Re: RIP: John Morton. Metal luthier master

    It was sad news when I heard this the other day. John was always very welcoming at jams when I was first learning mandolin in the Bay Area 20 years ago, and more recently, when I'd see him at Weiser...

    Re: Are tenor guitars slightly evil?

    I use either FCGDA, FCGD, or GDAE....I prefer the guitar range of notes, with the transferable mandolin chords/scales.

    Re: Are tenor guitars slightly evil?

    I gig more on tenor guitar than mandolin (country/western/swing), but mandolin is always my first love. Given the price, it's easier to find "deals" on tenor guitars and end up with a collection :)

    They are all mine, and all built by Paul Lestock of Arrow Guitars/Mandolins.

    Re: Kimble two point reviews?

    They're great! Tone, setup, build, etc, are all top notch. I've had two Kimble's in the past, and both were very responsive instruments.

    Re: Building an electric tenor...

    My Arrow 5-string electric tenor was broadly based on the Gretsch Duo-Jet design (with a little Bigsby inspiration, too):
