2015 Weber Yellowstone F5 Mandolin
(Serial No. 15500606) Near mint condition. This is the main workhorse mandolin for Weber, and it carries the load well. This mandolin will give you that good bluegrass sound. Has a sunburst lacquer gloss finish, a solid carved Adirondack red spruce top which gives it good cut and chop, traditional tone bar bracing, heavily flamed maple back, sides and deep V profile neck, fully bound, nickle Grover tuners with pearl buttons, Weber one piece cast tailpiece, pearl "The Weber" logo, and an ebony Weber Traditional bridge. Bound radiused fretboard with 1 1/8 inch nut, slotted diamond position markers, and jumbo frets. Its a loud mandolin with good chop and a very warm woody tone. Very clean mandolin - anything that looks like a blemish is probably a reflection. Here is a link to a YouTube video of this instrument as played by Richie Dotson of www.acousticbox.com. Bruce Weber built a lot of Gibsons and Flatirons there in Montana. Now he has his own shop and is turning out high quality instruments. This instrument has just been set up by my luthier and is ready to go. It needs nothing but your fingers on the strings! Comes with the original grey Weber shaped hardshell case.
