1925? Hermann Weissenborn Style One SOLD
 
Very Clean mid 20s Herman Weissenborn Style One

SOLD

Up on Reverb: https://reverb.com/item/22402296-her...-neck-1925-koa

NO CRACKS. Original Finish is quite crystallized and has major MOJO.

Seven loose braces now perfectly attached with Hide Glue. ALL braces and all parts are now fully functional and perfectly attached. This Repair was quite an interesting project as the guitar is so thin.

Very old non functional and non original tuners replaced with Stew Mac Golden Age tuners. Original bushings worked fine so still in place.

All work done by my friend and Tech, Pat Quinn. Pat has been a Senior Repair Tech at Taylor Repair in El Cajon for a dozen years now. Before that he did a decade of full time Repair at San Diego's world renowned Blue Guitar. He commented favorably on the now crystallized original finish and excellent condition and TONE.

Pat followed the Hippocratic dictum. "First, do no harm". This instrument is still as original as possible while now VERY Playable.

VERY Rare to find a mid 1920s instrument in such fine condition!

Sounds great and is a blast to play, but it is not getting much attention and needs a new home. I am too protective to take this BOSS AXE to my gigs, and just lay my open tuned John Kinnaird Custom down for lap slide...

Came with a non original p.o.s. Chipboard case that was falling apart. So I found it a Musician's Friend square neck reso case, and removed the string compartment so it fits very well!

Will ship USPS third day Priority, swaddled like fine china, packed for interstellar travel, :) and insured on my Heritage account.

I buy the Iseman from you, install the Mag Mike, and now you tempt me with this?

Scoundrel!

Guitars44me 04-27-2019 01:21 PM

Hmmm...
 
Alan, I believe someone should be playing this! The thought of guitars in museums bothers me greatly.

M Sarad, you would NOT want to put a pup in this antique! Just put a great mic above it and wail!

Sending you a PM...

Happy Saturday

Paul

Folks this is the real deal...

Again, NO CRACKS! The replacement tuners from Stew-Mac still retain the original bushings...

Now has a more than decent case. NEEDS NOTHING

I tell you brother, this is a candidate for a museum.

Guitars44me 05-28-2019 10:24 AM

Museum MOJO
 
I suppose this has a better chance of selling if I continue to bump it once in a while… Ha ha ha

Alan, you may be correct, but I prefer to have guitars being played rather than looked at. :)

Mighty rare to find one of these with no cracks!

Someone will be quite pleased…

Everybody have a great week, and play pretty

Paul

Guitars44me 06-03-2019 10:28 PM

Still here.
 
I know not that many folks play lap slide but I can testify it is really a blast.

So much easier on a guitar set up for it! And this is the real deal, not a replica...

Talk to me, I am lonely over here! Hahaha
