What We Think

Condition: Used, Good

Light play wear, and some bubbling in the finish on top. Some spots near the binding are starting to pull away.

If you're looking for a Weber mandolin that is close to top of the line without some more visual upgrades then consider the Big Sky that we have in the shop on consignment right now! This will fit most mandolin applications very well with a mature sound and great setup but of course when you see an F you're gonna think about bluegrass and this would certainly be at home in that setting. This is the real deal from Weber, and after some repair work/touch up this Big Sky is looking for a happy home. Call us today if you have any questions about this wonderful used Weber!

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The simple fact of the matter is that you can play anything you want on your Weber mandolin, regardless of which you’ve chosen. If your hands are ready and you’ve done your homework and you have the right attitude, you can play jazz, bluegrass, folk, klezmer, classical, whatever you please.

But it’s also true that certain body shapes and sound hole configurations lend themselves to specific musical modes, and tradition, too, plays a hand in how your eye hears the music you play.

The  F shape has long been the ne plus ultra of the mandolin world, and it’s easy to see why. It’s just the most lovely thing, isn’t it? Shapely, perfectly proportioned, it’s almost profound, the attraction of an F style mandolin.

The classic F brandishes its two points with a flourish. The Florentine scroll (which is where the F designation comes from) sits across, its sensual curve off-setting those wings. Its long, slim neck is topped with a riff on the body, more curlicues and daggers.
