Hawaiian Koa Style 4 Weissenborn Guitar

An incredibly special one-of-a-kind Style 4 for the 250th Weissenborn from Richard Wilson.

Without a doubt the most stunning Hawaiian Koa I've ever had the privilege of working with. Visually stunning with jaw-dropping flame throughout and both light and stiff making for a truly amazing sounding Weissenborn guitar.

The master (AAAAA) grade Koa is capped off with stunning cast bronze Waverly tuning machines and matching Waverly bridge pins and end pin.

Guitar no. 250.
