Notes from the luthier

Baritone Weissenborns have typically been built-to-order custom instruments, so it is refreshing to have one available for sale. My design for the baritone seeks to be as faithful as possible to the original Weissenborn. It's not unwieldy to play, and it's not excessively boomy in its tone. Balanced in every way to offer that trademark tone in lower tunings.
