    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.

  5. 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...

    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...

  16. 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...
  17. 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?

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

    - did some work to get...
  19. 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...

    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...
  22. 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.
