Posts I've Made
12 February 2017 - 07:26 AMI played one of the vm jags, the squire line has gotten A LOT better the past few years. I was so happy wwith the way it played, it made me want to buy one of those squire 6 string basses for whatever reason haha
10 February 2017 - 04:56 PMIm actually getting a brass nut installed too. Hah And yes I know brass can be a softer alloy and can kill sustain a bit, but you'll notice I said "feels" and "seems" alot because I know It's just what I percieve in the change of tone. But yes, very neat design. And I must have been thinking of a different model bridge!
10 February 2017 - 02:58 PM4 sting electric mandolins are no fun. They dont sound like mandolins at all. From what I understand (may be wrong), they only made 4 string electrics because tuning machines were poor quality back in the day and you couldn't keep them in tune, which stands out like CRAZY when electric. But to answer your question. MAYBE. After fender's 2014 mandostrat run, I think the market for elec mandos is saturated. They wouldn't release an 8 stringer because no one would buy them (except me!!!!) but a 4 string can appeal to a guitarist a bit more too. So if they do, 4 strings. Btw I own a mandostrat-8 and am constantly wishing it had a humbucker.
10 February 2017 - 10:03 AMIf I had more cash I would have gotten a Gotoh or a Kluson harmonica bridge. But for the broke player, this bridge is still a good upgrade from the stock pot metal nashville. Also, in the pictures, it looks like the saddles are all cut for string guage, they are not. All of the saddles have the same cut depth and width. Still plays fine with zero buzzing, but I do wish they would have left cutting the saddles to me.
10 February 2017 - 06:59 AMWelcome, and I am sorry to hear about your experience with Fender, it's disappointing for you to spend a lot of money on a musical instrument, only for it to let you down.
And well done on being able to teach yourself guitar, I wish I had the talent, I had to take a s*#t load of lessons before I could progress on the guitar.
Thank you! I had to play until my fingers split open, finally get calluses, then play until my calluses fell off! Hahaha I'm a man with a lot of free time
