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.
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.
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.
