Number One - Intro

Kia ora.

My name is Tony Francis. In 2005 I began my tenure as a guitar maker and vintage guitar repairman, specializing in Weissenborn Hawaiian slide guitars from the 1920s and 1930s. H.Weissenborn brought a level of craftsmanship to his instruments that is unsurpassed today. In a sea of disposable instruments, both now and then, the curious Weissenborn remains a much misunderstood masterpiece of acoustic purity and fine detail.

From my shop deep in the pacific, I hope I can take you into Weissenborns work through a unique luthiers perspective, and see what lays behind the curtain. Through my vintage work, I want to produce the finest Hawaiian slide guitars on the market - Period.
