Howdy gang, just found out about this place. I'm wondering are there any builders around here? I've been bujilding Weissenborn copies(I see somebody using my pet name "Weisenheimers")for a year or so, and have been lucky enough to have Mr.Lindley try out a couple different ones. Just wondering if anyone wants to swap tips etc.

I think a couple of members have built some steels, but not everybody checks in every day. Welcome to the 'Patch.

There is a guy here in Kona who has built a Weissenkind of guitar. Send me your email address, and I will forward it to him. He is not a member of this board.

I have built a couple of steel guitars, but the kind you are talking about is a big step up from what I have made.

Sandy,
I do. One weissenborn, and several odd-ball types as well. Give me a shout via the members forum
