    Re: Pros/Cons - 4 vs. 8 strings

    The D'Addario's are their "plain vanilla" nylon strings so they are easy to find.

    They tune up easily with low tension so I think the Martins would be OK.

    I'm...

    Re: A Kala Tenor success story

    I bought mine directly from Kala also.

    But mine came with a huge bow in the neck.
    A truss rod adjustment put things right but it was a shock to see how bad it was.

    These:

    They call them Primetones for some reason but they are made of a different material and feel totally different.

    Re: Quality of a 2014 vs 2021 Eastman MD315

    I just bought a "brand new" tenor guitar that says 2007 on the label.
    It looks new, but 14 years in a warehouse? What?

    Anyway I love it.

    Re: Makeshift home studio

    It works very well. It turned a very reflective room into a good sounding studio for cheap.

    All the ones (that I have seen) have only a bridge pickup.
    One pickup is fine - but only a bridge pickup?

    I would never use a magnetic pickup if I was trying to get an acoustic sound though. I would suggest an acoustic pickup like a K&K.

    They look uncomfortable to play, but I'd love to try one.

    Last I checked they were no longer in production.
