Just to let you know, we are not shut down for repairs or new instruments.
Sporting a smaller profile than a standard mandolin, but having a standard scale/neck size, it plays like a full size mando. It’s also a great Beginner Mandolin as you can be assured of quality construction and setup at a reasonable price, with great Player Support, and made in the USA. It comes with a handy small Mandolin Chord Book.
This tough little mandolin will go anywhere with you weighing less than two pounds in the case.
Also, Consider Personalization! This one sports a Walnut Body, Ebony Radius Fingerboard, Ebony Peghead, Rosette Soundhole, and Custom Peghead Inlay
AND- He Liked It!!
Hi Mary and Bruce, I am so sorry for the late response. I was out of town when the Ranger arrived (a neighbor held it). What a pleasant surprise when I got it in my hands! I can only write good things. Great fit and finish, excellent setup, and gorgeous inlay! Out of the box and tuned, the Ranger was incredible to play – as smooth as butter. I decided to take it to a couple of jams to see how it “fit in”. Wow! Even with its diminutive size, this mandolin has a strong voice. Although I expected to use the Ranger as a easily accessible practice and travel instrument, I think it will spend some time in public. Thank you, Mary and Bruce for returning to Montana, opening Montana Lutherie, and building my Ranger. Without a doubt, it is the best travel mandolin. (And, again, the wheat shock inlay is stunning – I love it!) My Best, R. D.
I think I’ve said before that our Ranger players are the most creative, but they are also the nicest!
Received the Ranger, Dec. 20. So beautiful. Thank you. I study and play it, at night, while my wife is sleeping. Does’t bother her. The inlay of my grandchildren’s initials and the Sequoia tree( for my wife), are exquisite!! Wonderful tone, for a small body!! It’s like holding a baby. Also, I like to get a whiff of the wood, from the sound hole, before making music. Thank you so much. I hope you all have a good year. BB

We built a few extra Custom Ranger Travel Mandos, over the last couple of months, to make sure they were ready to go in time for Christmas. Rangers take a few weeks to build and it can sometimes be hard to get them to Santa in time.
All these need is setup and they’re ready to go.

Mahogany Body is a favorite, of the little Rangers, as they tone down the treble a bit.
