A Century-Old Super Jumbo by Weymann

Here’s a unique fretted artifact -- a wonderfully fancy and extremely large flat-top built long before such things were common. This Weymann Jumbo is the only one like it we’ve ever seen -- a treat for the eyes and ears, and a very unusual guitar. While fancy, expensive, pearl-spangled guitars were not unusual around 1900, they were normally nowhere near this size!
