Burgin Style 2 Weissenborn, Mahogany
Here’s an opportunity to save big on a Burgin Weissenborn…
This guitar was made for a client of Paddy’s and traded back in for a Baritone model.
Paddy has restored it to ‘new’, and Heywire are pleased to welcome the first of many of the fine Burgin line…
“I have been making weissenborn style guitars for more than twelve years, inspired by my own father’s lap steel playing and our childhood household music. Our slide guitars are played all over the world by musicians such as Barefoot Truth, Delta Moon, Fred Kinbom, Henry Kaiser and of course, David Lindley, who is one of the pioneers of modern weissenborn guitar playing. Along with Ben Harper he has revived an instrument made popular in 1920s Hawaiian music. David Lindley, a dynamic performer of many musical styles, owns two Burgin weissenborn style guitars fitted with pickups for live playing. He calls them his “Burgintwangers” and discusses them on his website. When he’s not playing music with Jackson Browne, Ry Cooder or Ben Harper, David Lindley is touring his one man multi-instrumental solo act, and can be seen and heard playing his Burgintwangers on You Tube. All instruments come with a hard case.”
