A Guitar Geek's Guide to the Mandolin

Gibson has published an article of sorts. Actually, it's less of an article than it is a list of mandolin facts written to appeal to rock guitarists. So despite a few groaners ("See? Mandolins rock!" Get it?), it does have some interesting facts. Bill Monroe put a rattlesnake rattle in his mandolin to frighten away mice? Really? I didn't know he had that big a problem with mice! It was written by Michael Leonard and can be found here. It's worth a read.
