    Never played one of these Micro guitars. How they they really differ from the normal 25.5 " scale ones? Do they "sound" the same ?

    I got one of those Mitchell mini-guitars for my older son a couple years ago. It's surprisingly fun to play, though it hasn't yet inspired my son to seek musical greatness...

    Right now just E standard. I need to bump up the string guage, though. It came with 10s and the heaviest I have are 10s. Might try 11s or even 12s on it.

    It's close. It makes me laugh how "normal" it sounds.

    I have a regular miKro. It was in E standard with a proper hodgepodge of guages on when I got it: 10, 13, 20, 28, 36, 42 according to my digital calipers. I was amazed to find it wearing a wound third! The gauges make no real sense to me, I imagine they weren't consciously selected, but ended up that way as they were replaced after breakages.

    With one of my full-size RGs for scale:



    I've just put Grovers on to improve tuning stability and accuracy and strung it with 8–38 like Cameron, but only up to G so far and with mostly junk dirt cheap strings from the bargain bin while I fiddle more with the set-up. I might try moving to A, but I still want to be able to play lots of bends and wide vibrato without constant breakages. In G, I'll need a heavier bottom string than the 38 if I stick with this tuning.
