  1. Flatiron Mandolin Revamp

    Here is a nice old Flatiron from a player in NJ who figures heís going to be spending a lot more time with his mando and wanted it to play itís best. He got a plane and re-fret, nut bone nut, new bridge, and as long as it was in the shop, added a scallop and custom inlay. Check out the great engraving job Bill did on the new James Tailpiece!

  2. It Has Fused To My Body

    Thanks, Frank!

    So here I am 3 weeks after I have received my own Ranger and I think it has fused to my body. I haven't been able to put it down and I think my wife is suggesting I seek help of sorts. It's absolutely more than I expected and in both sound and build. Thank you Webers. I'm even thinking about using it for some songs at gigs because of it unique sound. I will be taking it around Europe for the whole of July so hopefully I'll be able to send a photo or two of the Ranger ...
