I think that my simple simon Flatiron 1N is just a great mandolin. It's the one that I reach to most often (I have a 1920 A3 and a Flatiron A5-1). The sound is really increadible for the size and it's just plain fun to play. I had a Breedlove KO, which was real nice, but not nice enough to offset my 1N. I had a Kalamazoo KM-11 (another pancake), but the Flatiron 1N was better. I may sell my Gibson A3 (to fund MAS), but it's not likely that I'll sell my pancake.
