    Frettie you say buyer beware. But then you say Synergy issued an immediate refund to your PayPal account. It somehow got cancelled though??? That doesn’t make sense and Synergy might not be the party...

    I had actually taken off the E and A string and left the others in place on a guitar a few years ago. If you are not using a thumb over to form chords it worked very well. You might start there, just...

    Less tension. The shorter the scale length the less tension exerted on the string. Oasis fluorocarbon strings come in one gauge but are rated for soprano concert and tenor.

    If the biggest challenge for you is the longer distance from fretwire to fretwire on a baritone compared to tenor then you must stay below 20” scale length. I own a number of instruments including a...

    So you started the family with a young soprano. Added the papa bearitone :p and the mother bear tenor and sister bear concert are enroute to complete the family. Brilliant, seems logical to me.

    First off.......yes you will notice a difference in sound going from an all laminate ukulele to a solid wood. There is also pride of ownership, a nice gloss finish over beautiful wood is a lovely...

    Here is the problem with a standard 17” scale tenor tuned DGBE, strings are very floppy and the sound is dull and muddy. You can’t fight physics, even at normal baritone scale length of 20-1/4”...
