"Weissenborn"
(Lap Steel) guitar
  • Style 1 Weissenborn dates from around 1916. This early style was unadorned apart from simple soundhole inlaid rings.

  • My current model (illustrated) is based on a Style 1 but with improvements. This has body bindings and a slotted headstock with the machine head buttons facing upwards, thus making it easier to tune.


  • Later styles, 2 and 3 etc., became increasingly elaborate with rope style bindings, mother of pearl inlay etc.
  • Includes hardshell case
