2006 Weber Beartooth A-Style Mandolin
Originally located in Bozeman Montana, now Logan, Bruce Weber and his crew of skilled craftspeople have been building phenomenal modern versions of the traditional F- and A style mandolins since 1997, and can trace the origins of the company to the original Flatiron Mandolin company. The Weber Beartooth was named for the rugged Beartooth mountain range in South Central Montana. This range contains Montana's highest peak, Granite Peak, at 12,799 feet. It is also part of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area which encompasses the lower 48's largest single expanse of land above 10,000 feet.
The Beartooth features a gloss finished top, which sweetens the tone a bit compared to a satin top. The top is hand carved Spruce with beatiful Maple back and sides. This top of this Weber Mandolin is very responsive without requiring a heavy pick attack. Combined with maple the tone is incredibly warm with a smooth high end and punchy midrange. When "chopping" chords for rhythm, this mandolin has that desirable "crack" that drives every Bluegrass jam and could cut through any mix.
To complete the package, this Weber Beartooth also features grained ivoroid bindings and gold tuners with pearloid buttons. These additional features really make this 2006 Weber Beartooth stand out, with a very classy and traditional appearance.
This 2006 Weber Beartooth is in excellent condition and hard to distinguish from new. There are a few light scratches to the top and back that we did our best to capture in the detailed photographs below. Original Hardshell Case included.
