Happy Ranger Owner, home on leave, wrote a nice review- Update

by Mary Weber on Aug-23-2018 at 4:49pm
A little update as the first Cherry Ranger went out today- sounds fantastic! Just thought some might be interested in these woods that are a bit different.




Thanks, NP!

I love my Ranger! I upgraded to the walnut with radiused ebony fretboard. From the start I was blown away with how great it looked and sounded! You canít beat its size and portability as

Worthless For All But a String Holder

by Mary Weber on Jul-17-2018 at 4:39pm
Any of the bridge issues below will rob your instrument of tone and volume and are responsible for more players going on a new string brand or gauge hunt because their instrument just doesnít sound like it used to.

I know Iíve posted on this topic a few times before, however recently Bruce has gotten quite a few instruments in for miscellaneous work and noticed almost all had bridge issues: poor fit, leaning towards the fingerboard, some bases flipped bass for treble, and messed

Custom Rangers

by Mary Weber on Jun-29-2018 at 4:08pm
This one will travel to France, soon- upgraded with an ebony FB & Peghead Veneer (think it's radiused, too) and buckskin color.


This one is Vegan- which is pretty easy to achieve with the ebony star in the peghead and micarta nut- looks cool, too!


Bruce has been picking wood and planning with two players for their instruments (one a two point, one an F)...great visits!

Here's a nice (and interesting) letter we received from a repair.
Mandos can sure get around:


My Grandfather Peter E Anderson was listed on the 1900 census as living in an apartment in Kentucky with three other LDS missionaries. Before he left the mission field to come home, he bought his wife Clara a mandolin. My father gave the mandolin to Pamela when we were newlyweds because she was the only member of the extended family that owned and played a mandolin.

Gibson History

by Mary Weber on May-09-2018 at 1:13pm
I was reading through a couple of articles/threads on Gibson Mandolin History and had the thought (revived- but I've been thinking somebody else would do it) of writing an article on the Gibson/Flatiron-Gibson/Mt Division years. I was there as a little cog in the wheel but still have contact with Steve, Dennis Balian and, of course, Bruce. Might be good timing as 'that' era seems to be coming to a close so-to-speak.

It would take some time, and I have Rangers to build : ) and Steve
