This Weber River mandolin, serial no. 15504910, has a Bearclaw Spruce Top. Bearclaw Spruce has a unique figure. It is cream with light red staining and has a wide range of grain patterns. As the instrument matures, it develops a great complexity of tone with great volume. The sound will continue to mature over the life of the instrument. Red Spruce takes color well and can have a vintage look.

This Weber River mandolin, serial no. 15504910, has a AAA quilted one piece maple back. Quilted maple is more open grained than flamed maple. Quilted maple has unique watermark-like flowing lines that are perfectly suited to one-piece backs and more vibrant colors. It exhibits more relaxed tones than flamed maple.

The F-holes on this Weber River mandolin, serial no. 15504910, give great focused projection, which equals volume. They are great for stage work and for being heard above other instruments in a band.

This Weber River mandolin, serial no. 15504910, has tone bars, two braces running from the head block, somewhat following the angle of the sound holes to the tail block. Tone bars offer a great bell-like sustain. They take longer to mature than an X-braced instrument but develop incredible depth of character and tone with play.
