This came up in the mandolinetto thread, and I asked it there, but I think this is worthy of a new thread, just for arguments' sake.
I own two mandolins: a Crafter (which looks like an Ovation Guitar) and a Jbovier solidbody ELS (which looks like a cross between a Fender Stratocaster and a Paul Reed Smith solidbody). Now, the question is, since a mandolinetto is a mandolin that looks like a guitar, do my machines count as mandolinettos? Or is the term anachronistic? (I really don't mind either way - just interested...)
