    Where can we find more information on them. Weber's website didn't mention them.

    Probably the next information to come up is from us once we're at the Show. Most companies don't make information they're announcing at NAMM immediately available on their web site. Last year Collings announced their Waterloo Mandolins and it was Summer NAMM I believe before anything appeared on their web site. I'll see what I can come up with but no promises. I think had they had a price point they might have offered it so I take that as they're still working that out. Not really my place to comment on their work but I am a big fan of what they're doing with adding dovetails to their instruments.

    I've got a killer Big Horn but that Pronghorn is mighty fine looking.

    Is it just me, or does the Red Rocks concept sound a bit like the Northfield Big Mon? Or is this "deeper" while the Big Mon is "wider.?" Didn't Bryan England make a bigger F-5 at one point? Please note I'm not criticizing Weber at all, just thinking out loud about a possible trend of changing the traditional F-5 specs. If I was a rich man I'd buy a Red Rocks and a Big Mon and write up a comprehensive comparison. But I'm not, so I post on the Cafe!

    It looks a lot like a Collings MF, although nothing about the tone woods or the x bracing is suggestive of an MF. It's just a cosmetic thing.

    And they're now calling the split ridge exiting the scroll a "swallowtail".

    There's the first Pronghorn in stock and for sale, at The Mandolin Store.
