1930's Weymann "A" Archtop
1930's-1940's Weymann "A" Archtop. Pre-War guitar made in Chicago. Solid maple construction (top, back sides and neck). No cracks on the guitar just playwear and some scuffs on the sides and neck. Appears to have a bound rosewood fretboard and mahogany bridge. The bridge saddle has been replaced with a custom made mahogany one. The pickguard has also been replaced, as well it's bracket. This guitar boasts a double bound top, with segemented f-holes and a small sunburst finish. The chunky 'v" neck is typical of this time period for archtop guitars. The neck isn't perfectly straight but with this set up plays without any fret buzz and is a blast to play with a slide. The string action is on the high end of the spectrum but not too high. It has three on a side tuners typical of Gibson flattops of this period. This guitar isn't as "plucky" sounding as other archtops, it has some blues characteristics to it. Comes with newer soft case.
