    Re: Changes in availability of Weber Instruments

    There's an awful lot of speculation and misinformation in this thread, but also some pretty insightful speculation as well. I could probably write a book on the history of Weber mandolins, the sale...

    Re: Weber Gallatin A with with repairs

    That's a poor repair job. I've seen mint condition Gallatin A's for that price, used but not abused Absaroka models, and Gallatin F's in the same ballpark. I think the seller is overly optimistic...

    Re: RIP Lee "Penn" Gwin

    Lee was a frequent visitor to the Weber shop when he lived in Livingston. I had the great pleasure of doing a few custom finishes for his Weber mandolins, and I always enjoyed his humor, kindness,...

    Re: In the Classified - Is this a great deal?

    That was one of the last Webers I finished before I left Bend. It has the Weber Celtic knot on the back of the neck (very, very few of those in existence), and it sounded fantastic before it went to...

    Re: Weber Freedom model

    It's essentially a top-bound Gallatin, with fingerboard binding and special peghead inlay. I can't remember if we did f-hole models in addition to the oval hole. Some hand bound oval holes, some were...

    Re: Markings on bottom feet of bridge

    I used to play in a rock n roll jam band in Bozeman for a few years. After leaving TOH and returning to Montana I am now a full time nursing student, so playing music has pretty much evaporated from...

    Re: Markings on bottom feet of bridge

    Ngan and I were both residents of Bozeman back in the early 2000s, but Ngan did not work for Weber in Montana. He came on board with TOH after we moved the company to Bend. I believe he had been...

    I don't know if Ngan is still with TOH. He was still there when I left for good in July of 2014. He was working customer service and warranty claims during my time with TOH, not out on the floor in...

    Re: Weber Diamondback

    Hard to believe that was five years ago. Seems just like yesterday you were picking out that wood! I hope you're well George!
  10. Re: Breedlove production moving to China -- Will Weber be next?

    I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I'm not. As someone who was intimately involved with Weber for 12 years, and as one of the few people who made the move to Bend from Montana, I saw the writing...

    That would be Rick Banuelos, former Weber set up tech and sales manager. The treble clef indicates the treble side of the bridge.

    Vern is correct. Bob Peterson was our set up tech at the time. But they are Japanese characters, not Chinese. Bob was intrigued by Japanese culture and language and was taking Japanese lessons at the...

    Re: Chicago July 3-5 The Dead anyone going

    I stand corrected! And I should have known better, considering I saw quite a few shows on those tours over the years. Yikes! For some reason my mind had blocked out Billy's participation. I always...

    No need to use shellac unless you really have your heart set on it. My preferred method for sealing ebony pickguards (did a few thousand over the years) was tung oil. Just wipe it on with a rag,...

    That happened at Deer Creek about a week before the final shows at Soldier Field. I was at both and the fence coming down at Deer Creek was flat out nuts. They cancelled the second show at Deer Creek...

    Re: Reliced Maple Fingerboard

    Bernabe is spot on- Bruce Harvie is definitely the resident forum expert on all things related to authentic distressing, especially of Fender and Gibson electric guitars. He's perfected the art.

    Re: The best electric mandolin?

    Way beyond the OP's budget, but I have yet to see a better electric mandolin than a Rono. They occasionally come up on the used market. I would love to add one to my stable someday.

    Re: Weber Madison F Style Mandolin

    Those Madisons were a pretty limited run, and Weber isn't building that particular model anymore. If you have your eyes on one you may want to snatch it up.

    She plays an older model Beartooth A. I believe she purchased it when she was 11 yrs old.
