The Custom Weissenborn Guitar pictured below is made in Tasmanian Blackwood with an oiled finish. This is not something that Valleys would normally do but it is a custom instrument built to the order specs.
This is the first instrument of this type from Valleys, and it is still very much in the R&D stage, meaning there is still a lot of work to do on it to set it apart from other Weisssenborn Guitars.
Future plans may include customizations such as:
- Designing the headstock to get the timber right
- A Rosette that jumps out at you and says, “Quality/Design and Workmanship”
- Customize the binding to complement the wood
- and more!
Even though this custom instrument is still in the design stages, the sound of this unit is to die for and it records fantastically. It is really a lap steel but I have so many areas to work with, that it has become an exciting project.
At the end of the day, we believe Valleys will be able to produce a beautiful acoustical product that is musically superior to other Weissenborn Guitars that “oozes” quality.
