 Product Description

The Style 4+ is the most accurate production-made replica of a Style 4 Weissenborn acoustic lap steel to date. We have acquired 100 sets of genuine Hawaiian Koa, the original wood chosen by designer and luthier Herman Weissenborn, and built these fine instruments to the exact specifications as the highly sought-after originals built nearly a hundred years ago. To help replicate and capture the true essence of these wonderful acoustic lap steels, we worked with Richard Barnes, renowned luthier from Claremont, California and Weissenborn expert and guru, to help verify every possible specification. We really feel that we have hit a home run with this instrument and we are proud to make these unique sounds available to you in this affordable model.

Try one of these limited quantity Style 4+ models today and see for yourself why these instruments are so highly sought after for their rich and unmistakable sound.

Warranty Disclaimer: Because of its construction, care must be given to the correct tuning and string gauges to avoid bridge, bracing and neck problems. The strings supplied (.014, .018, .026w, .034w, .044w, .056w) allow G (DGDGBD), D (DADFAD) and similar tunings. Your Weissenborn will not tolerate any additional excessive tension (such as E tuning (EBEG#BE), Dobro G tuning (GBDGBD or heavier) and will void the warranty. The string tension should be no more than 165lbs at pitch. There are several online string tension calculators available such as this one to determine correct string gauges for any desired tuning.

Every instrument receives a 12 point set-up and is thoroughly inspected before shipment. This takes additional time before shipping but insures that your instrument will be received without any flaws or issues and will be ready to play right out of the box!
