This Fairchild Weissenborn is a Custom-Built Hawaiian Style......one of a kind.
This is a fully open cavity guitar body and neck and the final finish is hand buffed... sprayed on nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
This guitar has a beautiful mellow voice.....built in 2013.
The type of wood is solid mahogany
The finish color is a natural clear wood finish
The fret board is “Brazilian Rosewood”.
The binding is Tortoise Shell
Fret markers are “MOP dots.
Tuners are quality Vintage style
Strings are Beard...presently this guitar is tuned to an open G tuning.
There is extra strong bracing in the design to add structural strength so
heavier gauge strings can easily be used for tunings like open G.
This is a one and only that Ray Fairchild built, accordingly, Ray tells me he will not build another because presently he is building 9 Dreadnought guitars 6 Dobros and an Acoustic bass.
This Weissenborn has never been played except for ...the other day when I took photos and checked to see if this guitar was in tune. It was only slightly off of 440 tune and was originally tuned when it was built and then placed in a box and wasn't touched since then.
Cost is $1,100.00 or best offer...ships in a padded Gig Bag, inside a box, designed for shipping guitars.
Free shipping in the USA
No International sales.
This Weissenborn can be seen and played in Bethlehem, PA, prior to buying.
