    It's into that gray area for sure. I have seen other instruments with that scale or longer called baritones and some called tenor guitar. I would tend to call it tenor guitar, but with DGBE tuning,...
  2. "Extended Reentrant" Tuning for 5-String Kiku/Ukulele

    I wonder if anyone else has ever tried something like this?

    The TL;DR version is a 5-string tuning dGBEA or under transposition would be gCEAD - normal reentrant tuning with a high "extended"...

    One too many zeros for my account. :p

    Hmm, I strongly suspect that such a set does not exist. That's a big range to ask from a single set. I suppose your best chance would be these:

    Not tune down - use the low G as your 3rd string, the "C" as your end string (ok, this is tuned down a half step), and the E as your first string. You won't use the A string at all.

    I answered in my other thread too. To summarize, use a wound 5th string from a classical set and any normal tension low G tenor set you like. You may or may not want a wound G as well

    I know there several threads on DGBE for tenor. You pretty much have to use a wound string for the D. (Unwound barely works for low D on baritone.) Almost any "5" string from a classical guitar set...

    People that want fifths tuning generally want a linear tuning, but you're right that would give you the right chord shapes.

    Can't beat Gotoh in my opinion for looks and function, but the Graphtechs work perfectly well.

    Yes, I contacted them and wanted to know what their typical setup involved, and they indicated that their target on that class of instrument is about 3mm action at the 12th fret. I responded that I...

    Second Elderly. They did a great job setting up my Cordoba C1m 1/4-size after I asked for a lower than usual action. And this was on a $140 instrument. I offered to pay extra beforehand, but they...

    I *might* pay that price if the cracks had been repaired and stable afterward. I don't have the skills the fix it myself so I personally would not buy it in its current condition

    I'm not in the market but I'm sure that is an awesome instrument. I'm curious what strings you have on it. Is it linear or real kiku with octave up A-D?

    FWIW, I'm pretty sure Devine and Griffin advocate Kasha only for linear tuning.

    That's not much to go on. Buzzing can be hard to isolate. If it only happens when strumming loudly, I would think strings hitting a high fret would be the most likely cause. It could help to change...

    For steel strings, I could see it, but for nylon/flourocarbon the high gear ratio is more of a nuisance. I find the 4:1 ratio of UPTs (and Pegheads but I prefer UPTs) ideal.
