S/N: 90820019, built during 1995 in Bozeman, Montana.
Based in Bozeman, Montana, the Flatiron company built mandolins like the Flatiron performer under master luthier Ren Ferguson from 1977 to 1987, when Gibson purchased the company. At the end of 1996, Gibson moved mandolin production from Bozeman to Nashville, and the Bozeman shop became the source for Gibson Acoustic guitars, still under Ren Ferguson. At that time, one of the other workers was Bruce Weber, who decided to stay in Bozeman and founded Weber Mandolins.

The Flatiron Performer is a standard A-style mandolin, with carved maple back. maple sides, and carved Sitka spruce top. The neck is maple with an flat or un-radiused ebony fingerboard. The bridge is ebony and the tailpiece is engraved The Flatiron.

This Flatiron Performer A-Style mandolin was built in 1995, and is in good condition with light wear. There is one chip in the neck finish, behind the first fret. A hardshell case is included.
