This is a new discontinued Weber Bitterroot A Style Mandolin signed by the man Bruce Weber himself. One noticeable feature on this piece is the 1-3/16" wide nut which gives you just a little more room for your fingertips when playing compared to a standard mandolin fretboard- a feature often requested by guitar players who have transitioned to their little eight string cousin. Also included is the deluxe Weber hardshell mandolin case and all the case candy like wrenches and paperwork. Here is what our buddies at the Weber Mandolin Company have to say about the Weber Bitterroot Mandolin;
The Bitterroot A14-FW Mandolin is an exquisite traditional, minimalist mandolin. With the Bitterroot, simply bring your talent and enjoyment of music to any setting, and let the Bitterroot do the heavy lifting. Players love the silky satin finish and the ivory binding that give this mandolin distinctive visual appeal. Combine the playability of the radiused fingerboard, the bluegrass muscle of the tone-bar braced, aged-Sitka top, along with the elegant traditional aesthetic, and you get one of the best, most affordable mandolins on the planet.
The Bitterroot is Montana's state flower, whose fleshy roots were used extensively as food by the Native Americans, Lewis and Clark, and the pioneers and mountain men that followed. The Bitterroot Mountains follow the border between Idaho and Montana.
