Okay, during a break last night, I got the usual question, "What do you call that stringed instrument?"

Even F-style mandolins often stimulate that question. In one of my bands, the mandolin player was relatively short--about 5' 7", while the rest of us were all around 6' 2" - 6' 4". So, when someone said, "What's that thing?", our lead singer would say--"Oh, that's a guitar, but we left them both out in the rain and they shrunk."

:lol: Sometimes you just can't help it.

A wag once called my gizmo a "mandolin on Viagra".
