Weber Vintage A-style Mandolin

What a great idea! Take all of the great concepts from the early carved top A-style mandolins and then give them a modern spin … full 13 7/8″ scale length with a suspended fingerboard extension, radiused fingerboard and the Brekke bridge!


The sound definitely has the best of a vintage A … that warmth in the midrange and overall sonic depth, with much better definition and a really nice point to the attack transient. I could see this one being used for everything from fiddle tunes to Bluegrass to general jobbing sideman duty!
