#9820012, the arched top model with the D-shaped central soundhole, in excellent original condition with the addition of a factory provided and installed McIntyre MT-100 internal pickup, with original hard case
The Weber Bridger A is built utilizing a natural matte lacquer finish with a carved solid spruce top and carved & figured maple sides, back and neck. The internal bracing is “Modified X,” the headstock veneer is bordered in ivoroid-black-ivoroid and the headplate is rich East Indian rosewood inlaid with the stylized “Weber” pearl logo and the large pearl Celtic Knot. There is also a dual action adjustable truss rod with a rosewood cover held in place by two stout Phillips head screws. The scale length is the standard 14” and the radiused fingerboard is ivoroid bound. The sides are bordered in ivoroid, the top and back in ivoroid and black, the soundhole in black-white-black and then checkerboard wood marquetry. The nut width is 1 2/16th and the fret markers are mother of pearl diamonds – 7 of ‘em in 6 positions. The Brekke bridge is made of ebony with an inserted ebony compensated bridge saddle that is vertically adjustable. The tailpiece is burnished and antiqued, and bears a slightly raised stylized “W” in relief, and what a relief it is. The most important part is the sound, which is exquisite, sounding like no other A-style and like no F-style. It’s a cross, as Stan once said, of a Snakehead with a Loar, and remains the only mandolin that has this sound. This superlative used example shows a very small amount of finish wear just to the treble side of the end of the fretboard on the face. It otherwise shows just a few normal (tiny) dings. Our repair shop has re-rounded the frets and it is ready for another quarter century of professional and semi-professional Celtic musicianship.
