Music Villa, being only 20 miles from the Weber shop in Logan, was treated to the arrival of their special edition 10th anniversary mandolin on December 20, 2008. This particular instrument, number 1 of 10, is without a doubt a masterpiece in luthiery.

Built by Bruce D. Weber, these mandolins are the culmination of years of experience in luthiery. Not only do the tenth anniversary mandolins exhibit exquisite attention to custom detail work, they also have volume and tone to match.

The instrument features nothing but the best from the Weber shop, from its hand rubbed semi-gloss varnish finish, to its subtle touches, such as inlay work adorning both the headstock and heel button. The mandolin also comes stock with custom mother of pearl accent line inside curly maple purfling, a fossil ivory nut and saddle, gold Waverly tuners, and a custom Ameritage case with numbered plaque.

For a first hand account of this fine instrument or a chance to purchase the first of these very limited and special mandolins you can stop by Music Villa in Bozeman, or contact them at (406) 587-4761.

Weber Fine Acoustic Instruments is a small band of luthiers under the direction of Bruce D. Weber handcrafting world-class mandolin-family instruments and guitars in a turn-of-the-century brick schoolhouse in Logan, Montana. For more information or to be referred to an authorized Weber dealer, contact Tony Polecastro at Sound To Earth, Ltd (888) 886-7598, or visit their web site.
