  1. New Shop Update

    Things are moving along now that itís not winter anymore -for the moment anyway. We should be partially in the new shop in a few weeks, and can begin making parts and Rangers once again- Lord willing and the creek donít rise (a bluegrass title if there ever was one). Things always take longer, especially if it's a 100 year old barn.
    We really appreciate the patience of those waiting for pickguards, Rangers, etc.
    *edited to add, Bruce is accepting all repairs and MAC instruments ...

    We've named it Sound To Earth Orchard, of course.
  3. Flatiron Mandolin Revamp

    Here is a nice old Flatiron from a player in NJ who figures heís going to be spending a lot more time with his mando and wanted it to play itís best. He got a plane and re-fret, nut bone nut, new bridge, and as long as it was in the shop, added a scallop and custom inlay. Check out the great engraving job Bill did on the new James Tailpiece!

  4. It Has Fused To My Body

    Thanks, Frank!

    So here I am 3 weeks after I have received my own Ranger and I think it has fused to my body. I haven't been able to put it down and I think my wife is suggesting I seek help of sorts. It's absolutely more than I expected and in both sound and build. Thank you Webers. I'm even thinking about using it for some songs at gigs because of it unique sound. I will be taking it around Europe for the whole of July so hopefully I'll be able to send a photo or two of the Ranger ...
