    The KS-1 has a depth at the lower bout of 2, 14/32" as compared to 2.25" on the KTS-4.

    Scale:
    KS-1 is 13.75 from the nut to the leading edge of the saddle (nut side)
    KTS-4 is 13 5/8"

    Width across the lower bouts:
    KS-1= 6, 17/32"
    KTS-4 = 6, 12/32"

    Thanks for that. I guess they build the laminates slightly bigger, for a bigger sound. Fine with me!
