Special / Sale Price - 2005 Weber Bridger
Sweet Blonde!More Details
Very first Bridger model we've had at MandoMutt. Cool arched top, tear drop shaped A-style with `D' shaped soundhole, modified X-bracing and unique sound.
Specs; very tight grained Sitka Spruce (or perhaps Cedar?) top with exquisitely bound soundhole, highly flamed Maple back/sides/neck in a blonde matte lacquer finish, 3-ply bindings border body and headstock and single ply Ivoroid bound fretboard.
Radiused Ebony fretboard with diamond position inlays and large fret wire, Ebony Brekke bridge and nickel hardware includes cast Weber tailpiece and Schaller tuning gears. Headstock features Ebony overlay, Weber logo and Celtic knot inlays.
Excellent overall condition, but does have a significant amount of pick marks and superficial finish scratches on body and headstock. Finish is very glossy in area on upper bout, perhaps where previous owners arm rested. Also has a "pinky shine" area below strings. Back of neck is rather glossy as well and finish is worn from thumb in an area about the size of a nickle where neck meets headstock. Minor fretwear.
Includes a hardshell case, but may not be original. I think Weber had started providing the nice, padded grey cases by 2005.
Trades gladly considered on this fine, American made instrument.
