If you do tangle with Yamaha let us know how it works out. Funny thing, their Artistes' Reps were very persistent in having me link them to "artistes" in my touring days. However, supply parts? Oh noes! Perish the thought! Hevvins forfend! Not even for the rock star's equipment. I developed an attitude: you don't help me Yamaha, I don't help you. Don't take it personally Yamaha, it's my corporate policy. Get with the program, or get lost. Who knows, maybe they've lightened up since than. I hope so.
