Description

We have a rare instrument here, a 1930 Weissenborn Style 1. lap Steel in all Koa. The Weissenborn guitar has long been the gold standard in the non resonator slide guitar scene. With that classic woody growl it is hard not to fall in love with the Weissenborn sound, just playing a few licks conjurs up memories of the delta blues or the beautiful beaches of Hawaii. this Weissenborn is in spectacular shape, with only some discrete finish checking and the stray ding or two on the back and sides.

If you are looking to get into the world of lap steels, there really is no better place to start than the Weissenborn. It has a great sound that isn't nearly as metallic as its resonator cousin, and it also has the advantage of being feather light, kaming this guitar a breeze to play for as long as you would like.
 
The classic lap slide guitar, this one is in fantastic shape and sounds awesome. I could play it for hours.
