Re: weber bitteroot F syle. thoughts....comparisons
It won't sound like you may expect a bluegrass mandolin to sound with the mahogany sides. It will be darker and warmer sounding versus the brighter maple sound. Not better or worse just different. Be sure you've help some Webers and be sure you like their neck shape and profile. The prices given above are reasonable in my estimation. You can always ship the mandolin to Weber, have them check it out, set it up and re-certify the warranty in your name, too. Nobody else I know of does that.
