This dream started just two months ago when I held a Weber Bitterroot for the first time. I had to have one. With the help of Dennis at The Mandolin Store and Tony at Sound to Earth, my Weber dream came true. Yesterday I became the proud owner of a Custom Weber Coyote. The Coyote is an exclusive model sold at TMS. With Sitka Spruce top, binding through out and a beautiful piece of maple on the back, this baby sounds as sweet as it looks. Very consistent up and down with unbelievable lows. I can't believe how great it sounds on day one and can't wait to see what she does with hours of love.

I wanted a unique look so in addition to the tortoise binding and buckskin/matte finish, I dreamed up a couple of custom features for my Coyote. As you can see the add-ons include: a black-filled tailpiece, diamond markers, black tuner buttons and a great looking maple truss rod cover to match the finish. Trust me, she sounds just as sweet as she looks. My thanks again to everyone at webermandolins.com and themandolinstore.com. Team Vance did it again with excellent service and the fine folks at Weber built an amazing mandolin.

That's a beautiful mandolin. You're gonna love it! Dennis is a great guy and Weber does build simply outstanding mandolins! Now play the hound out it (-:

Yeah Bob... but I spelled it differently ;)

That looks like yet another great Weber mandolin. Interesting selection of truss rod cover, which I think works really well as a contrast. I really like that colour too.

I am sure that you are loving it as much as I did mine!

I love that headstock binding scheme. It's like a tuxedo.:cool:

A nice modern touch to a classic design. Very clean lines. I like the mat finish as well, my gloss finishes get pretty crusty before I'm willing to get the polishing rag out.
