    Default mandolin - after surgery to remove extended fingerboard

    Looks better to me this way and sounds the same. The long extended fingerboard had no frets, so why keep it?

    That's the only reason to get rid of it! Good for you.

    I still don't get why it's there in the first place - can't really play up there unless you're after some weird special effects. I'll eventually have it scooped out on my KM1000; the fret ends on it are still a bit sharp and it's actually eating into my Bluechip pick...

    Those frets are for playing classical mandolin pieces; as you know, for most other music no one seems to use them much.
