I am seriously considering purchasing one of the 2 above tenor banjos and wonder if anyone has experience with both instruments so they could guide me. I want a slim neck on the tenor, regardless of 17 or 19 fret model, I like the neck to be thin from top of freboard to the back of the neck...the neck width isnt that important to me. I love the sound of steel string tenor banjos and have tried retuning my Ome 5 string to chicago tuning but the voicing just doesnt sound right to my ears...I would prefer to use the jazz tuning of C-G-D-A. BTW I have a banjo-uke and its ok, but not the same snappy sound, to my ears.
Thanks for any information you could provide me.
