    It's a 23" scale so could probably make it it into a baritone with a 20" scale. Perhaps Elderly or the Banjo Hangout Forum would know if it could. 23" scale is the same as a tenor guitar. I have a...

    Depends on the strings and tuning you want to do. The bridge is moveable so adjusting the scale length is easy. My intention is a baritone lele with a larger head and slick fast neck from years of...

    Looks good Jim. So it'd be okay to change out a tenor banjo to a nylon strung baritone DGBE? They're both the same scale length.

    I'd pick an Ohana, Islander or Mainland over any of those. Would probably look for a used uke for a bigger bang for your buck. I rarely, if ever, see a beat up used uke.

    I tend to gravitate towards nylon for my vintage mahogany instruments and fluros for my newer instruments. I love a nylon string on an old Favilla 'hog.
