ca 1925 Weissenborn Style A Parlor Guitar

Extremely rare 1920s Weissenborn Style A, Size 0 X braced Parlor guitar. Manufactured in Los Angeles California.

An absolute original survivor! They say Herman made these himself…. what is known for sure is there are not many of these out there and certainly not in this stunning condition!

Nary a crack anywhere and the only sign of repair is a tastefully filled small strap pin hole at the heel. Very cool trademark Weissenborn “Bat Wing” bridge you could stare at all day. The 80 plus year old tight finish crazing of the lacquer on the flamed Koa is simply gorgeous! The comfortable V shaped neck and headstock are all Koa!

This is an all original guitar sans a bone saddle in place of the original brass bar. Original Fleur-de-lis engraved tuning machines with the cream colored buttons matching the bridge pins.

This X braced beauty features a deep body, 4 ¼” at the lower bout and 3 ½” at the upper bout. Action set a 5-4, suitable for Spanish finger style or lap style slide play.

This stunning guitar speaks out from the roaring 20s and sez….play me!! Open the high resolution photos for inspection.

Nice wide 12 fret Ebony fingerboard measuring 1 7/8” at the nut. 13 1/2″ wide lower bout.

The sound? Remarkable.  Watch the videos and see and hear for yourself….

New hard case.
