Description

The acoustic Hawaiian guitar of Hermann Weissenborn is one of the most specialized instrument designs of the 20th century. Weissenborns were made for guitarists who played the newest craze of the late 1910s and 1920s – Hawaiian music – and with their koa-wood construction and square, fully hollow necks, they were unsuitable for virtually any other style of music, even the Hawaiian music of later eras.

Hawaiian guitarists introduced their style, with the instrument held flat in the lap and played with a steel bar in the left hand, to the mainland around the turn of the 20th century, but they represented only one of many genres of popular music until 1915, when performances by Hawaiian musicians at the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco set off a national craze. At the time, a “Hawaiian guitar” was simply a standard steel-string guitar with a high nut to raise the strings off the fingerboard.
