This Weymann c.1916 flattop acoustic could well be Americas first production ‘f’ hole guitar. If anyone knows differently I would sure like to know.
This guitar also appears in my post: https://www.leavingthisworld.com/weymann-f-hole-guitars-styles-30-648-748-and-848/ but I felt it deserved it’s own posting.
Formerly owned by Bill Yates, due to his immense generosity, this is now in my possession. Bill did an amazing job in restoring it (the ‘f’ holes themselves were quite damaged, but otherwise it was in pretty good condition for a 100+ year old instrument.
