This Weissenborn was part of the collection of a very talented local musician who passed away last year.  He left an awesome collection of banjos and other folk instruments that we have agreed to help the family sell-off.  It is a great sounding piece and comes with great hardshell case.

The mahogany back, sides and neck of the SM+ are beautifully set off by original-style maple/mahogany "rope" bindings and a rich honey brown finish.

Because of the Weissenborn guitar's original-style construction, due care must be taken to use the correct tunings and string gauges in order to avoid bridge, bracing or neck problems. The strings supplied (gauged .014, .018, .026w, .034w, .044w, .056w) allow for G (DGDGBD), D (DADF#AD) and similar tunings. Your Weissenborn will not tolerate the excessive tension exerted by E tuning (EBEG#BE), Dobro G tuning (GBDGBD) or similar tunings. Using these or other non-recommended tunings will void the warranty. The total string tension exerted on ANY Gold Tone Weissenborn guitar should be no more than 165 lbs. when tuned to standard (A440) pitch. There are several online string-tension calculators available such as this one to help you to determine the correct string gauges for any tuning you might want to utilize. Available as left-handed model.
