Weissenborn Style 4 – Original – Acoustic Lap Steel – Slide – Hawaiian Guitar
Up for auction an original Weissenborn Style 4 with the stamp inside. This is by far the cleanest Style 4 I've seen from several years of endless searching, and has been extremely well kept and preserved in original condition. It comes with a newer Asher hardshell case, custom fit. Excellent + to Near Mint condition. Structurally sound, slight belly, no repairs, and plays very well and stable. I acquired this one in a trade with Ben Harper. I am friends with his long-time equipment manager, and know first-hand that the instrument was extremely well cared for while in their hands. Some standard finish checking, and some very light play wear; nothing else really to mention here. Standard style 4 appointments. High figure koa back, sides and top. All original. Shape of stamp on inside and bridge length indicate this was likely made sometime from late 1926 to 1929.
I included detailed photos so the pictures could be counted on to really tell the story here. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I understand this is a major purchase, and I am happy to provide as much information as you need to make a sound decision on this. I will respond to all inquiries within 24 hours.
