HILO / Weissenborn / KOA Lapsteel. / 1924 / Original Natural KOA. / Guitar For Sale

Weissenborn / HILO koa lapsteel. 1922-1926. Good condition.

All Hawaiian solid KOA with 6- 3/4 inch bridge. "The factory guitars from 1922-1926 are lightly braced and have a bridge that is 6-3/4 inches from point to point.

The factory guitars from 1927-1937 are heavily braced and have bridges that are 5-1/2 inches point to point.

The shorter bridges are a spotting feature for me. The 1922-1926 factory guitars sound better than the 1927-1937 because they vibrate more, giving that long sustain and ethereal Weissenborn sound".

"Jerry Douglas plays a Weissenborn Style 1, and tunes it to open D (D A D F# A D) with D Addario phosphor bronze strings: 14-16-26-036-044-060"...Incl TT hardcase.. 19500 SEK
