Logan, Mont. — Weber Fine Acoustic Instruments is proud to announce that its Gallatin A and F style mandolins have been updated, bringing greater value to their popular carved-top model.
Both A and F style Gallatin mandolins will be built with maple from Weber's lauded well-aged in-house stock
instead of mahogany.
A-style models will bear a tapered-A style headstock, and both styles will be hand stained to a faded leather color.
Gallatin Mandolas, Octaves, and Mandocellos will continue to be built with mahogany in a natural finish.
List price for the maple Gallatin A and F styles will continue to be $1799 and $2,279, respectively.
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.
