    My MP tenor has a cedar top with Mango back/sides. It is the most balanced of my three acoustic tenors. Pretty much any string set sounds even and complimentary from string to string. My Acacia...

    I own two slot heads and two flat head tenors. I prefer the look of the slot heads. Stringing sucks no matter which head I am dealing with. One of my slot heads has very light mini tuners and it...

    That's pretty much it. The question that arises is what does it take for someone to decide that the seller is someone they don't get along with.

    In my view, this is an apples/oranges kind of thing.

    The Risa is a solid piece of wood and produces very little tone of it's own. The Pono is not a conventional sold body instrument; it is...

    I live about 20 miles from any store that carries uke strings. I use Juststrings to buy a bunch at a time; having four tenors makes it worthwhile. My order for the GHS strings was $32.00 for 10...

    Almost forgot to add that the titanium strings come with a bead at one end that is designed to anchor the string behind the bridge instead of wrapping it.

    Strung the Pono up with the GHS strings. Impressive sound. Bass is full and not boomy. Treble is clear and not brittle or too bright. Good match to the ATDC.

    The MP is next.
