Among Ted’s personal instruments were two he didn’t make but held dear. This one is a mandolin made for him and given to him by Bruce Weber of Weber Mandolins. Dad met many fine builders over his life and always freely exchanged ideas and information with them. This tobacco brown maple mandolin is a Beartooth model and is inscribed simply, “For my Friend Ted Thanks and God Bless” and is signed, Bruce D. Weber.
