Buildig the Acoustic slide guitar: Weissenborn

Weissenborn. In this page I put many pictures and detailed information concerning the building of a bonzomusic acoustic slide guitar. All the building process is inspired by top-quality construction.

The materials are first choice Honduras mahogany for bottom, top and sides, and, cedar, sprouce and rosewood for the internal components and for the bridge. Every component has been chosen and worked by hand aiming at solidity, coherence, resonance and sound.
