A sweet sounding maple backed Weymann that would have been the lower end of the Weymann price range in it’s day. It has a stylized painted faux rosewood finish over the maple. Beautiful spruce top. Before this was repaired it was split in half along the side (see the first photo in the gallery), which is probably the reason the finish is in such good condition. We retained it’s ladder bracing and the only real addition was a new ebony bridge and an additional top up coat of French polish.
I think it would have originally had gut strings but seems to take lightweight Silk and Steel strings well. As with all H.A. Weymann and Son instruments the workmanship is superb.

(This is a H.A. Weymann and Son beautiful little ‘Parlor’ Guitar. It does not carry a serial or style number which most likely dates it a bit before 1900. It is being played by Guitarist and Kirtan Artist PRALAD. The mantra is “Haribol Nitai Gaur – Nitai Gaur Haribol”).
