Gruhn Description: Weymann & Son of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania produced at least two versions of their tenor-harp banjo (e.g., model 30 and model 60). Production of the tenor-harp banjo models appears to be confined to the period 1928-1929 (e.g., all known examples have serial numbers which date to this period, and the 1930 Weymann banjo catalog does not list these models). The model 30 was an entry-level model and the model 60 had more advanced features (e.g., resonator, geared tuners, etc.). Serial number: 43404 – die-stamped on peghead rear with gold-color Weymann logo decal. Upon examination, we note that this tenor-harp banjo appears cosmetically and structurally to be in excellent condition. In other respects, this instrument conforms to the typical specifications of the model for the period in which it was made with round “banjo style” body, spruce top with round soundhole, mahogany back and sides, triple-ply black/white/black soundhole rosette, removable two-foot “banjo style” maple bridge with ebony top, simple metal “mandolin style” tailpiece with removable “cloud shape” cover, mahogany neck with Brazilian rosewood heel cap, typical Weymann banjo peghead shape with Brazilian rosewood overlay, four Grover friction tuners with grained-ivoroid buttons, 20-fret Brazilian rosewood fingerboard (17 frets clear of the body) with small white dot inlays, and nickel-plated metal hardware. No information concerning a case was provided to Gruhn Guitars.
