Just for show. My collection of some of the flamiest and sonically best Weissenborns I have ever had or seen. In the large pic of all four we have (from left to right) style 2, a very dark hue'd style 3, a magnificent style 4 and an early 20s style 1 that has SO much flame and medular grain going SO many directions that no one pic captured it all. ALSO ... SEE MORE IMAGES FOR THE SUNLIT PIC OF THE STYLE 4!!! And finally ... the rarer "Tear Drop" single bout Hawaiian. Hermann Weissenborn built the best lap Hawaiians ever. Knutsens are a whole other world as far as unique beauty too but it is the opinion of most players that the Weissenborns are the best guitars to the ear and playability. SELL ME YOURS TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

{Style 1 has 3 concentric circles and dot inlays: Style 2 has black bound front and back and the beginnings of "Rope Binding" around the soundhole and the fancier triangle and diamond shaped inlays at the nut and 12th respectively and a light holly wooden fingerboard binding unique to this model only: the Style 3 has Rope Binding around the soundhole, top and fingerboard w/ fancy inlays: and the fanciest Style 4 has Rope around the soundhole, top, fingerboard, back and headstock and the fancier inlays. It is said that the styles 3 and 4 got the best looking Koa ... but my style 1 says bullshit!!!... this being one of the most rediculously flamed ever right along with my 4. Sometimes on the 2's, 3's and 4's the inlay at the 12th will vary from the diamond shape to a parallelogram}. The Tear Drop is the newest aquisition as of 8/20/2011.

Pay Pal, Cash, Personal Check, Money Order/Cashier's check, Wire transfers or Western Union. Pay Pal and wire transfers are offered as a convenience for far away buyers and all extra expenses are the customer's responsibilty. Unless i price my guitars up with some of the really big dealers theres not enough profit in Vintage guitars to pay out 3.9% additional. If you need to pay with a credit card there is still a way though i don't take them directly .... and that is that Pay Pal will take the card and pay me through normal services. Any time that a deposit is taken for any special arrangements or "holds" it is non refundable. To have these rules work in your favor all transactions need to be completed or deposited on w/in 5 days.

Buyer pays shipping. Shipping will be determined on a case by case basis so as to include size, weight, distance, insured amount and method requested. Shipping is paid by customer both ways on any returns.

All parties buying through the mail or offsite are allowed a 48 hour approval/inspection period on ALL guitars, unless discussed otherwise, to make sure they are keeping their purchase (but not amps to keep shipping delicate amps back and forth to a minimum and not on parts either ... too many guys doing "switcharoo's" or wrecking them trying to install them, break them and then trying to send them back ... sorry ... you have to reap the behavior of so many others). Buyer pays shipping. Payments must be received within 5 working days of anything placed on HOLD. When you receive the guitar your 48 hour return includes 2 days to receive it and approve or not and you MUST contact me. WE DO STRICTLY adhere to these rules. I don't mean to sound tough here but you would be amazed at the liberties taken in recent past! Thanks for your understanding and adherence. If an instument is put on hold and any special arraingements have been made like a deposit and hold followed up by another payment that is considerd a sold instrument since it has been taken off of the market for other possible buyers. Its not fair to us to hold it off the market and then decide against it so make sure to ask ALL questions and we will be thrilled to give you an in hands description. The same poicy holds true if you have us change the guitar (like "set it up for left handed etc ...). If that kind of work is done thats on an instrument that is a done deal also. Thanks. ALL Outside the USA sales are FINAL due to extended "visits" through customs and some countries laxed attitude about shipping on time.
