Weymann 1925 Guitar Banjo 2,250

Photo for Ad 139361

Weymann Orchestra Style 2 Model Guitar Banjo (1925), made in Philadelphia, PA. An extremely rare instrument; Weymann's 1920's banjos are fairly well known in tenor form, but 6-string guitar variants hardly ever surface. Chunky but comfortable neck with a medium "V" profile, built of flame maple with multiple colored wood laminates through the center, at the heelcap and under the fingerboard. The ebony fretboard is inlaid with fancy shaped pearl and multi-bound in grained ivoroid. The large 6-string size (but banjo-style) headstock carries a diagonal "Weymann" logo of inlaid individual pearl letters surrounded by an elaborate floral design, with multiple wood underlays on the front and back. The resonator is nicely figured maple with binding on both edges, the rim top is capped in rosewood with an inlaid half-herringbone strip. There is an attractive solid rosewood armrest mounted to the hoop, a unique Weymann feature. The unique Weymann adjustable tailpiece has an engraved slide-off cover. This is a beautifully crafted, great sounding and extremely classy guitar banjo, one of the most striking of its type. There is some finish wear overall but all original finish and parts except one of two screws securing the heck brace internally and probably later (but not recent) bridge. Plays and sounds excellent, complete with the vintage (5-string length) OHSC is a wreck but available if the new owner wants it. More info and pictures on www.jetcityguitars.com
