This amazing instrument is an exact recreation of the Teardrop originally built by Hermann Weissenborn ca 1927.
The great french luthier Florian Chateau has captured every single detail of the original Teardrop Weissenborn and replicated the instrument in look, feel and tone.
And Florian Chateau made his job truly fantastic!
