Great Guitars Australia
by Oscar Schmidt
HILO Model 640 Hawaiian guitar Weissenborn Hollow-neck.
Koa back and sides, spruce top,
Rope binding. VGC
This great collectable hollow-neck Hawaiian guitar is between 90-100
years old and in really good order with a genuine aged patina to the finish,
minor marks and play wear. One small old crack repair from many years ago,
central back in the area of the central interior label.
This is s stable, aged, small repair, not cleated due to it's location.
The sound of this instrument is authentic tone from beautifully airy light
weight aged timbers. The koa is only lightly grained and figured and the
spruce top is a fine grained quality top with no cracks.
Original Waverly tuners working well and operating smoothly.
The original case is here but the instrument far too good to risk the old
tattered item. This instrument will be sold with a more modern hardcase.
More details up soon.
