Weissenborn Style 1

Hermann Weissenborn is best known for these Hawaiian steel guitars he made in his Los Angeles workshop from about 1916 until his death in 1937. Made even more popular by the likes of David Lindley, the Weissenborn Hawaiian is the one most players prefer. This plain model is made entirely of koa, and is in particularly fine condition. Because of the high tension steel strings, many of these have suffered extensive damage while in storage.
