Artist WBS200 Weissenborn Guitar, Solid Wood, Pickup
With the WBS200 Artist took their original WBS100 and made some great improvements. Firstly they added a piezo and magnetic preamp. The Cadic 3 preamp has a built in chromatic tuner, 3 band EQ, Phase (phase can help reduce feedback)
New Preamp - Dirty Blues Tone
The reason they added this preamp is wanted you to have the ability to get a natural sound (suing the piezo) or a more dirty blues style tone from the magnetic pickup. You can also blend these both together to get any variation in between.
Superior Light Open Pore Finish
Then they changed the finish to a super light open pore (open pore means that the surface is very light and you can still see the grain in wood, as it uses much less paint than a gloss finish it allows the weissenborn to resonant stronger and more clearly.
Diecast Machine Heads
The last thing they changed was the machine heads, changing them to a standard diecast for superior tuning (the old vintage style machine heads look great but they don't work as well as a modern diecast)
The same as the WBS100, this fantastic value Weissenborn is Built from All Solid wood for the ultimate tone.
SPECIAL NOTE - Weissenborn's can only tolerate certain tunings to avoid bridge, bracing and neck problems. String gauges can be .014-.056 (.014, .018, .026w, .034w, .044w, .056w) allow G, D and similar tunings.
Your Weissenborn could be damaged by higher tunings or thicker strings (anything that adds extra string tension - lE tuning or heavier strings). The string tension should be no more than 165lbs at pitch.
