    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    After a lot of years mucking about I put together a rig that handles most chores. I went with separate clean and crunch rigs that I switch between with an A/B pedal.

    Each rig has it's own effects...

    Re: A little pickup advice?

    Yeah you can buy mass produced cables but I opted to go DIY. I've had lots of problems with noise and such in cheap cables.

    I used the best quality audio cable and jacks I could get to ensure...

    Re: A little pickup advice?

    It's wired to a TRS output jack.

    When Piezo is selected on the 3-way it's obviously just that pickup solo.

    When Both pickups are selected (middle position) they are mixed in parallel (not...

    Re: A new Art Deco inspired mandolin

    Very nice. Thanks for bringing that to life.

    My only quibble would be with the Florida. Deco and nouveau are distinctive for their symmetry, which the Florida throws off.

    Re: A little pickup advice?

    When I electrified mine I went with a Lace resonator single-coil mounted on a floating fingerrest with a couple piezos mounted under the soundboard. Each pickup has it's own volume control and the...

    Re: Gibson doubleneck

    Eastwood did a couple mando double-necks through their crowd funding. There was this Warren Ellis 4-string mandolin and tenor:

    Re: Kala and Ibanez

    No. Both the Harmony and Kala were tuned in 5ths and both worked because of their respective string gauges. The Kala just felt like a toy in comparison.

    I guess if I'm suggesting anything it is...

    Re: Gibson doubleneck

    I do like that Gibson mando/6 string. Would be great to have them take a run at improving the design with modern pickup tech.

    I like doubles and confess to owning one. It's like a swiss-army-knife...

    Re: Kala and Ibanez

    I played a Kala, owned a Harmony and now a tenor banjo.

    The Kala is 21" short-scale, which is great for playing 5ths. The Ibanez are both longer 23" scale.

    You are wanting to play in Chicago...
  12. Re: Fender FM60E truss rod: single action or double action?

    I bought my mando used and I don't believe it came with stock machines but could be mistaken. The tuning buttons were metal, not the perloid I've seen in pictures. That said, mine had the vintage...

    Re: HB Tenor Guitar

    For comparison here's the HB beside the Ibanez PFT2NT and Ibanez AVT1. The Ibanez PFT2NT is plywood the others are solid tops. Ibanez did have a PFT1 that was solid woods but mysteriously disappeared...

    Re: HB Tenor Guitar

    I understand what you're saying. Most traditional Martin, Gibson and other tenors were 6-stringers with a tenor neck slapped on and tend to sound meh. Makers had to move the bridge forward to lesson...

    Re: HB Tenor Guitar

    I think it best to defer to Fox on this. He's better at explaining the technical stuff.

    I've found that as the bridge moves closer to the neck/soundhole for 14 instead of 12-frets to the body, the...

    HB Tenor Guitar

    Perhaps old news - I see Harley Benton has a tenor guitar ($200-ish) with a solid top and the bridge in the right place, although the copywriters don't seem exactly sure what it is they're writing...

    Re: I've gone to the dark side

    Great suggestions all. Keep them coming.

    The string tension was really sloppy when I got it. The fellow said it came from the store in CGDA but he tuned it to Chicago (DGBE) so I took a chance and...

    I've gone to the dark side

    This basically new Alabama tenor banjo followed me home today. I know nothing about banjos but it does look to be very well built with a Remo head. Tuning machines are serviceable and a quick tweak...

  23. Re: And now for something completely different

    The Reverb listing says you can reach out to him/her. Since this is a small builder I'd be included to send an email asking for things like a 21" scale, 2 pickups and more controls. Those are really...
  24. And now for something completely different

    Ran across this on Reverb (NFI). It's different but I like it. I appreciate builders that go outside the box with their designs and this certainly does that. What do you folks think?
