Ed Gerhard demonstrates his custom Weissenborn-style Breedlove lap-steel guitar.
December 1, 2014

In this video, Ed Gerhard demonstrates and discusses his custom Breedlove Lap Steel and performs his arrangement of “Rye Whiskey Mash.” Built by luthier Jayson Bowerman (bowermanguitars.com) during his tenure at Breedlove Guitars (breedloveguitars.com), the Weissenborn-style guitar uses figured myrtle wood for its top, back, and sides and walnut for its binding, bridge, and fingerboard. Ed uses a Fishman Neo-D soundhole pickup to amplify the guitar (fishman.com). virtuerecords.com. Check out Ed’s segment in the Advanced Fingerstyle Workshop!
