With much regret, I'm selling this wonderful Weber F-Style Octave. It simply isn’t getting played, and it deserves a better home. It was originally purchased from Carter Vintage in Nashville. I am the third owner.
This rare, beautifully crafted instrument was a custom build to be an exact match to the famed octave used by Sierra Hull. Signed by Bruce Weber, this impeccable instrument presents a rich tone, unmatched sustain, and an unexpected volume sensitivity controlled by the player.
The distressed finish on the Diamondback series gives players the feel of a vintage instrument straight out of the case. This series is more open and matures faster than any other instrument in the Weber lineup due to its thin satin lacquer finish. The Diamondback offers all the traditional appointments: a double-cutaway fingerboard, red spruce top, maple body and neck, ivory binding, Weber’s Fern inlay, a gorgeous pre-distressed satin finish and distressed gold hardware.
At some point a small spot on the back seems to have been scratched accidentally by a previous owner. Photos available for serious buyers.
