Which guitar is that?

That would be the one and only Fairchild built Weissenborn in the cosmos.

Hey Jack.....the Weissenborn being talked about is Ray Fairchilds Weissenborn. I think you saw it and maybe even took it for a "test drive"....?
Several folks have been watching it on eBay....and one person asked for a mp3.....guess my playing in open G doesn't really give justice to the guitar. Would had been better if you or Dennis would had done the Demo in a D tuning....or that mysterious tuning DADGAD.....or what ever it was called....I was really lost on that one.
I am quite sure Ray Fairchild is not going to build anymore Weissenborns. Presently he is focused on 00018 Martin type straight acoustic guitars and he has a herd of other Dobros under construction and also dreadnaughts.....
Jack you are the local Weissenborn Luthier....I think you need more exposure.....we'll keep thinking about some kind of Guitar Show....to display your builds....Ray Fairchilds builds....and possibly used "stuff" that folks would be interested in. I have a lot of "stuff"....I should get rid of....pedal steel things...two pedal steels....several volume pedals and so on.....I think you and others have seen it all.
No matter...…………..Keep building those innovative and wonderful instruments. Those short scale Dobro are really different and neat....and sound as good as or better than many full body Dobros.
Keep in touch...…..Tom
