Weber is famous for the Celtic mandolin styles, this one typifies the line. This "best buy" level teardrop shaped A- is made from solid Spruce and figured maple back & sides. It has tone bar bracing, a mahogany neck, an ebony peghead overlay, a decal logo and Celtic knot. The bound ebony fingerboard has a scale length of 14”, and small diamond markers of mother of pearl. The body is unbound, finished natural/hand-rubbed matte. The hardware, which includes the Schaller tuners with pearloid buttons, is described as “textured stainless steel.” This archtop mandolin with its twin graceful f-holes gets the benefit of a Brekke adjustable ebony bridge (Mr. Brekke, prolific inventor, works at Weber). It provides the comfort of a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer plus more tone and volume than you thought it was possible to obtain in this price range. The mandolin is in great shape. Some minor scratches from the pick (see photos). I've looked on the web and these are hard to find. Both of the listings I found were sold. I could not find one actually available for sale. Original Hardshell Case included. Text eight-four-three-991-3502.
