2013 Weber Bitterroot Mandolin
(Serial No. 13447006) Named for the Bitterroot River in Montana. Excellent condition showing some pick wear on the top. This mandolin will give you that good bluegrass sound. Rich medium brown lacquer satin finish. Unlike the earlier Bitterroot series, this mandolin has heavily flamed maple back sides and neck. I think maple is by far the superior tonewood for mandolins. Many of the early Bitterroots were made with mahogany back and sides, which to my ears just doesn't cut it for sound. It also has a solid carved spruce top which gives it a warm cut and chop, beautiful one piece back, traditional tone bar bracing, top bound only, rounded V profile neck, nickle Schaller tuners with pearl buttons, Weber one piece cast tailpiece, pearl peghead inlay and Weber logo, and an ebony Weber Traditional bridge. Has a unbound radiused fretboard with 1 1/8 inch nut, pearl diamond fretboard position markers, jumbo frets, and no treble extension which eliminates pick click. Its a loud mandolin with good chop and a very warm woody tone. This instrument has just been set up by my luthier and is ready to go. It needs nothing but your fingers on the strings!
