    I know, Jerry, I noticed a while back that the option to choose a tenor neck for the Flea model disappeared from the Magic Fluke website. When I ordered this, it was a regular option. I‘m just not...

    So will I. Even more so, as it seems they abandoned the model I own, the KSM-T2, the soprano body model with the tenor neck. It‘s a pity, it‘s a wonderful instrument, with a marvelous sound an...
