    First off, this is in OT because it doesn't really have anything to do with music, since this is a business project and I just picked an instrument company because, well, it's interesting. Edit: And now it's in misc. Cooooooool

    Anyways, my project is to research an organization and get some information on its structure and how it is organized. Stuff like, how are the divisions set up, is it mechanical or organic, etc. Everything to do with the structure of the company. But my teacher isn't so hot on me doing them, since she doesn't think there is enough info. I figured you guys might know some stuff about fender, or at least some places to get some info. Not stuff on their products, more their structure and organization.

    The more you post by monday night the better, since I want to have made a final decision by then. :)
