About Me

Herrmann Guitars by Ermanno Pasqualato

Highly passionate to the slide techniques, Ermanno Pasqualato loves to build guitars inspired from old models throughby methods used in the past.

Production begins from the Weissenborn guitars with a wide building experience, through guitar models such as the Teardrop Weissenborn, to the Kona, the Baritone and the Tenor Weissenborn.

He created inspired by American builders, the Resonator Weissenborn, a kind of hybrid with the Weissenborn characteristiques and resonator sound. After this, we can find the Parlor Squareneck an extinct slide instrument, Weissenborn with aluminium top and walnut body. 

He produces also Lap Steel guitars, either solid body or semihollowbody or hollowbody and a solid body lap steel 8 strings guitar. Another production consists of Acoustic guitars such as Martin, Gibson copies and Parlor guitars.

Paolo C.

Ermanno uses high quality materials. Advantageous prices of his instruments and the great professionalism of Herremann Guitars led me to purchase my first Weissenborn.
