Ranger Travel Mandolin


This tough little mandolin will go anywhere with you weighing less than two pounds in the case.

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, with great Player Support, and made in the USA.  

The Ranger has a two-point flare giving it a larger sound chamber than its popular predecessor, ‘The Sweet Pea’, increasing the volume.

Added to this is the quality of design, attention to detail, and great customer service you’ve come to expect in instruments from Bruce and Mary Weber.

*While we show some in stock we usually build these to order, especially the customs, and they can take about 2 weeks to ship*

Here’s a nice letter from one of our creative Ranger Players:
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,
