Wow - one might think Mr Hermann Weissenborn built an electric Kona. Imagine an old Kona and its beautiful tone just with all the specs of a modern electric lap steel guitar...
Well yes, whatever :) if Weissenborn wanted to build an electric Kona he first would have stopped by at the Melophonic's workshop and have a chat with the so fine talented luthier Matthieu Humbert.
Electric Kona specs are:
Mahogany body and neck
Custom Creamery Pickups - 2x handwound alnico PAF 59's replicas
Schaller grandtune tuners
Russian PIO caps and CTS pots
Thin PU finish
And another very cool spec: the Electric Kona is equipped with a hidden NFC (Near Field Communication) tag. This tag contains all the technical data and main specs of the instrument as Serial Number, materials etc... Just download a NFC Reader app on your smartphone, find the sweet spot (right between the right bottom edge of the bridge and the tone know), and flash it in order to get all relevant infos. Wow, what cool feature!!!
Oh! And here are some detailed Pics of the beauty:
