This is a genuine Weissenborn Style #1 koa wood lap style guitar, probably dating circa 1925, with a fine light-colored koa wood body and a bright, loud sound. It comes in a NEW hard case (with key) that was custom-made by Berkeley Music Exchange for its Superior lap guitars.

PLEASE NOTE: I first placed this guitar up for eBay auction, with a much higher opening price, in early September. One person emailed me the following message: '...[I]t's NOT a Weissenborn and you shouldn't call it one. It looks pretty new to me.'

So, I went down to have it authenticated at Real Guitars, the finest vintage guitar shop in San Francisco. The expert there - who in fact has previously sold a number of Weissenborns - agreed that this guitar is indeed a Weissenborn: 'It couldn't be anything but.'

The guitar offered here is in excellent condition. The inside back strip with burned-in name has been replaced with a maple strip and the guitar shows some minor signs of typical player wear. The koa wood is a light brown and very handsomely figured; and (in answer to another e-mail question) it has not been refinished.

ALSO NOTE: This guitar has replacement tuning machines custom-made by Gotoh for National Reso-Phonic Guitars, San Luis Obispo, California. (I am including the original tuning machines, of which one button has split off.) Otherwise, it is ALL-ORIGINAL.

Payment, shipping & handling: PayPal is preferred, money or postal orders accepted. Shipping will be via UPS Ground for $60.00 (includes insurance) within continental USA only.
