Shipping Your Repair

by Mary Weber on Mar-11-2019 at 3:56pm
These days shipping can be a big expense. We've noticed Montana Lutherie's UPS costs often are quite a bit cheaper than individual shipping costs.
We can email you the UPS shipping tag to tape on your box, and you can just drop it off at the local UPS center. Then, the expense will just be tacked on your repair cost.

Be sure to ask us about this service, when getting your repair ready!


Info on Your Mandolin

by Mary Weber on Jan-29-2019 at 1:03pm
We recently discovered a players can no longer obtain information on Weber instruments built prior to 2013 from the Weber company. Mary and I would be happy to help with any questions or concerns you have on instruments built before 2016. Also information on any Flatiron instruments prior to 1997 and Montana built Gibson mandolins. You can contact us through our Montana Lutherie web site, here on Mandolin cafe, or give me a call directly at 406-580-6053.

The picture above shows what may be the reason. Over time the string tension works on the saddle on a traditional style bridge creating a bow with the D and A strings riding lower, sometimes significantly. Flat or radiused fingerboard, the problem created

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
