Does anybody know where you buy one? How much? I'm interested in an A 5 body. Also good alternatives. Been searching but can't find much. Thanks

A note to say I found a used weber A body octave mandolin on Reverb (from Parrish Music in Wisconsin). It's functional but it may need to be refretted in the future. Contacted Weber and they will do it at a reasonable price. It's about half of what a new one would cost, so I bought it. Weber says the demand since COVID arrived has been for guitars and mandolins. They will return to making octave mandolins in 2024.

Had a Gallatin before. Beautiful instruments with a real finesse. Unfortunately it was a narrow 1 1/4 neck and had to let it go. ... =headlines

is your best bet until Weber resume manufacture. They have gone up significantly in cost. There isnt' anything quite like the sound of these other than Weber mandocellos lol.
