This Weber Yellowstone is a great-sounding modern (well, modern for us!) mandolin, one of the few really good bluegrass F-style models available at less than a premium price. Webers are currently not in production, so now can only be found as used instruments. This just 20-year old example has been played but does not show much finish wear, just some minor dings, dents and some light pickwear just over the fingerboard by the scroll. There are a few marks forward of the bridge base from it being slightly moved. The back of the neck has some minor wear, into but not through the finish. The instrument appears to have been refretted with wire slightly larger than factory spec some time back and plays very well. This is a good gigging F-style mandolin with a powerful sound, complete in its original case. Excellent Condition.
