Weber Diamondback F Style Mandolin with Fern Inlays and Fishman M-200 Pickup
The talented team at Weber Mandolins have developed a name for themselves since Gibson left the Flatiron District almost 20 years ago. The famous master builder has created a beautiful series of models named after beautiful parts of Montana, like the Big Sky (country), the Yellow Stone (Park), and of course the local Diamondback (snake).
Today they are a well established premier builder, making many models from their new home in Bend, Oregon. Reflecting the history of the F style mandolins, their hand carved scrolls and stunning lines epitomize the beauty of an acoustic instrument. Each soundboard is tuned like the classics by hand for maximum response and volume.
Constructed just before the move in Montana, this Pre-Owned 2011 Diamondback F Style Mandolin features similar appointments to the iconic Yellowstone model, with some key differences. The distressed finish on this Diamondback gives players the feel of a vintage instrument straight out of the case. This option makes the instrument more "broken-in" and helps it mature faster due to its thin satin lacquer finish. Like the Yellowstone, the Diamondback offers all the traditional appointments: a double-cutaway fingerboard, red spruce top, maple body and neck, ivory binding, their Fern inlay, and distressed gold hardware.
This mandolin also features an Adirondack Spruce top and Maple back, sides and neck. Adirondack Spruce is the classic spruce species for the flat-top acoustic guitars and mandolins. Also known as Red Spruce, this tone wood can be found in the most collectable vintage acoustic fretted instruments of all time. Known for its stiffness, it is increasingly harder to find sets that are perfect for carved mandolins and guitars.
This used Weber comes equipped with a Fishman M200 pickup system, and is in Excellent condition. Please note that this Weber Diamondback does have a Factory Relic'd Finish. Please see our photo gallery for more detailed images.
Purchasing this instrument includes a Weber Hardshell Case.
