Thread Name: Open C tuning CGCGCE
Subject: RE: Open C tuning CGCGCE
To Fyldeplayer: as one Oberon fan to another, I think the fact that it has a short scale is the problem in low tunings. The tuning discrepancy seems to be less noticeable on long scale guitars - Dreadnoughts etc.Is the Recording King a 25 and a half inch scale length?
If I played in C tuning regularly (for anything other than my own pleasure!) I would use heavier strings and/or save up for another guitar.
