About This Listing

2005 Weber Hyalite Mandola, spruce top, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck, ebony finger board, ebony Brekke bridge, all solid woods. Tuners are deluxe Waverly's, tailpiece is cast Weber. This mandola was used extensively on stage and is fitted with a K and K Sound Twin Spot internal with end pin jack.

 Hyalite's were the plain Jane's of Weber's original line when they were located in Logan, Montana. Instead of binding and such, they used exceptional tonewoods and craftsmanship, details that produced a a very well crafted mandola. This mandola started life left handed, was played for years in a folk/Celtic band before being traded off for a Hyalite Octave.

It is in very good condition with the exception of the spot where the player planted his pinky. A finger rest might have helped! But its not structural at all, simply worn finish from years of play. The neck has play wear, first position to fourth, quite natural and its a very fast playing worn finish. This mandola has a warmth that only comes from thousands of hours of playing time. No cracks or repairs evident. Set up is perfect, very little fret wear, truss rod is at snug, bridge has room to go up or down depending on your playing style. Tuners are flawless as well.

Freshly strung, stays in tune, well balanced tone across the spectrum. Perfect for melodic layers and solo work. This is one of the warmest instruments I have played.

Has been converted to right hand, can be converted back to left hand if the buyers wishes.

Original Deluxe hard case is in excellent condition as well.

Shipped fully insured and heavily boxed.
My feed back in selling exceptional instruments speaks for itself.
