Used 1920s Weissenborn Style 3

SKU 23Weiss
Built by Hermann Weissenborn in Los Angeles in the 1920s and 1930s. It is estimated that fewer than 5,000 original instruments were produced, and it is unknown how many now survive. The signature feature of Weissenborn guitars is the hollow neck, effectively a highly adapted body chamber that runs the entire length of the body.

This single-owner Style 3 is the second fanciest Wessenborn offered at that time. It is in excellent condition with no wood cracks.  The burned-in brand is on the inside of the back as is the logo of the distributor Henry Stadlmaier. It is light and resonant and has incredible tone that you would expect from a 100 year old all-Koa instrument. No case is included.

Top Wood : Hawaiian Koa
Back and Sides : Hawaiian Koa
Nut Width : 1 7/8"
Scale Length : 25"
