Extra Deep Weissenborn Style Hollow Neck Hawaiian Steel by Imperial Guitars
This Weissenborn style lap steel that is designed with an extra deep body AND an extra deep hollow neck. Yep, it sounds BIG and resonant!
A typical Weissenborn is about 3 or 3 1/2" deep inches deep tapering down to about 1 3/4" at the nut. This one is 5 inches deep tapering to 3 1/2" at the nut.
Does it make a difference? Oh, yes. It surely does. This instrument is too much fun.
It’s constructed of Sapele, an African mahogany known for it’s “ribbon” figure, with rosewood fingerboard and bridge and maple bindings. The inlaid position markers are also maple. Nut is real bone and the saddle is brass. It has a 24 3/4" scale like an early Rickenbacker or original Weissenborn.
The top and back are bound with a beautiful five-layer maple binding and the neck is bound in solid maple.
