Newbie to the site saying hi and my new guitar. . . .

Postby dblonde » Fri Dec 30, 2016 9:01 am

This is my latest guitar build. A weissenborn which has taken me 7 months to build. I work as a design teacher in the Netherlands and so have access to tools and equipment etc. Finished this off in my garage over the Christmas holiday break from school :cool:
Came across this lovely site while looking for blues guitar tabs etc.

Very happy to be here and looking forward to sharing the blues experience :D

Best wishes everyone who reads this.

David

:welcome: to the forum David. :D

That's a classy looking instrument you've built - it looks like a great reward for the hard work that went into making it. :thumbsup:
What sort of woods did you opt for in the build?

I keep finding myself looking at weissenborns on a fairly regular basis and wondering if I should try one at some point. But I have enough to work on with acoustic guitars and mandolin to keep me going just now. :roll:

Very nice job! :thumbsup:
My father was a luthier and made one of those once. It sounded neat, but I could never get used to playing on my lap. (that's the reason I got rid of my old lap steel years ago)

:welcome: from Sweden.

Nice guitar. You know how to build this thing, I just wish I could.

Any time for a "sound check" ?

:welcome: to the forum!

A bit late with all the holiday stress... :whistle:

Looks like a slide guitar (lap steel) - wonderful - any sounds for us? :drool:
