“Tage des Condors” ist a short musical idea. Definitely not finished, but: You can play it as a complete short tune. Read more »
‘While You Were Sleeping’ is yet unfinished. This melody came along as I was watching the film “While you were sleeping”. Actually it has nothing to do with the score. I just came along … .Do you want to work on it and send me your ideas? I will put it on the website - with your credits!
Tuning: D A D F# A D
The mother of all Weissenborn style guitars, maybe 85 years old. A real vintage guitar!
Back, sides and top koa. Nice look, pretty good sound. Not as loud as my Italian Hermann Guitars Weissenborn.
I am not sure, but: For the price of one of these original guitar babys you will surely get a new one that sounds as good, maybe better. Anyway, its nice to have an original H. Weissenborn guitar!
Built by Hermann Weissenborn, Los Angeles - probably around 1925.
An extremly loud slide guitar, built like a tank. Top and back are thick aluminum sheets.
I had mine built with a tricone resonator - great sound.
It’s the perfect 2 in 1 guitar. It works both as a square neck dobro and as an electric lap steel guitar. The pickup is a PAF style humbucker - a Kent Armstrong P90.
Hand built in 2004 by Chris Fouke, Fouke Industrial Guitars
Back and sides New Guinea Rosewood, top maple. My fat Australian Weissenborn - as deep as an acoustic guitar. Inside there is a K & K Trinity - 3 piezos and one microphone. Nice pickup-system.
Built by Glenn Wilson, Australia. Unfortunately he has no website, and Google does not find much about this fine luthier.
