This one above is $50. Ebay has one listed for $30. Cannot vouch for the quality.

Ernie, I just bought a set of weissenborn plans from the MIMF back in December. As far as I can tell, they're still available.

If possible, you might buy or borrow both the old StewMac plans and MIMF plans...neither shows all of the relevant construction details, but in combination, nearly every important detail is covered. We have a major restoration of an original Style 2 in progress, including documentation of the construction details, and we can say that the StewMac plan body outline is far from accurate, but the bracing plan is closer to the prototype than the MIMF plans, while the MIMF plans is accurate in body outline and trim details, but lacks some details on the bracing plan. This suggests using the MIMF plan for body outline, trim, and the neck construction details, and the StewMac plan for bracing details. If choosing just one plan, the MIMF drawing is the better of the two...any details which want clarification will likely yield to some online research.

We have both plans in the shop, and are marking them up as the restoration progresses. If unable to source the plans elsewhere, PM me and I will see if we can help.

I have both the StewMac plans and the MIMF plans and have built two Weissenborns from them. There are slight differences, I leaned towards the MIMF plans when I encountered them. One of the nice things about the MIMF plans is the guitar will fit in a standard Goldtone case.
