Overview

Beautiful looks and tone in a non-traditional design.

If you're looking for a slide guitar that doesn't fit the traditional bill, the SM-Weissenborn+ Hawaiian-style slide guitar may be just the right instrument. Its original Gold Tone design is crafted from with a solid mahogany top paired with mahogany back, sides and neck beautifully set off by original-style maple/mahogany "rope" bindings, traditional inlays and a rich honey brown finish.

Since the SM-Weissenborn+ guitar features a unique design, particular care must be taken (correct tunings and string gauges) to ensure you don't have bridge, bracing or neck problems. The strings supplied by Gold Tone are gauged .014, .018, .026w, .034w, .044w, .056w and allow for G (DGDGBD), D (DADF#AD) and similar tunings. E tuning (EBEG#BE) and Dobro G tuning (GBDGBD) or similar tunings are not recommended as the higher tension will most certainly cause damage and void the warranty. Total string tension exerted should be no more than 165 lb. when tuned to standard (A440) pitch. Use any free online string-tension calculator to determine what would be the correct string gauge for your tuning.
