Here we have a Weber Bitterroot A14-FW Mandolin (Wide Nut) for sale. This Mandolin is in as new condition and has been well looked after. There is one small ding on the back of the neck which is an easy repair. The previous owner has replaced it with a Gilchrist A model and doesn’t use it as much. It also has a K&K pickup installed which can be easily removed.
It plays sensationally and the radiused wide neck is a revelation if you haven’t tried one before.
