big island weissenborn

The Big Island Professional Range was built with only the player in mind, constructed using only the finest solid tone woods and featuring traditional Hawaiian rope bindings using Maple and Indian Rosewood. The authentic look making this guitar look as good as it sounds. Hand crafted in the Weissenborn style and respecting the rich heritage of the Hawaiian lap steel. The tear drop design really adds to the volume and tone of the standard hour glass shape, and only acts to improve the sound produced by these beautiful instruments. Supplied with a gig bag, please contact us for details about a hardcase.
