Here is my interpretation of an electric version of the Hermann Weissenborn’s Kona model.
The instrument keeps the mains characteristics that make the Kona shape so recognisable.
Also the neck is V-shaped and joins the body with this so particular neck / body assembly.
The body is chambered with designed patterns in order to optimize weight, without compromising the tone and sustain.
