This Style 4 Weissenborn is THE STYLE 4 pictured in the well known article about Weissenborns 'Born Again' written by the great historian Ben Elder, published in Acoustic Guitar Magazin Feb 1996. It was owned by Bob Brozman, then owned by Ben Harper guitar tech Randy Freedman. Some famous Weissenborn-artists after that owned and played this dream-Weissenborn in fantastic productions. Feel free to contact us about the history of this beauty - this particular Style 4 has some interesting story behind.
Now to the further details of the Style 4:
Very good condition, original Hermann Weissenborn Style 4 from 1935. Remarkable sound - amazing gnarly tone, a ton of low end and also beautiful mids and highs which are typical for the Weissenborn sound. Perfect.
Red Button Tuners and Seymour Duncan Soundhole Pickup installed (Ben Harper nod)
There are no cracks or splits, the construction is absolutely solid. Of course the 90 year old instrument does show signs of use and has finish checkings. No further words needed here - this Style 4 Weissenborn is fantastic!!
