    Re: KM1000 Spec Question -- side width?

    Thanks Len. Yeah, depth is the proper word. I like the mandolin, can't play it for beans. I'm a guitar player and the mandolin kicks my dyslexia into overdrive.

    Re: Black Cloud Over Gibson

    Fender Japan bailed out Fender USA at that time. Those were great guitars. I don't remember Gibson producing any guitars in Japan. And if they did, they would most certainly not be "inferior."
