Vintage Oahu Square Neck Hawaiian Blues Lap Slide Steel Guitar Kluson Tuners

  • Price:$345.00

PAYPAL ONLY.  Up for auction is a really neat old guitar!  It is a vintage made in the USA Oahu square neck Hawaiian slide guitar.  Great for bottleneck blues, also!  Set up for slide with the raised metal neck and is ready to enjoy.  Guitar features a solid birch body and has the great warm tone that these are known for.  Nice!  There is a stamp inside marked 6 50, which I believe is the date, June of 1950, see pic.  Nice shape for the age. Neck is straight.  Neck/body joint is solid.  Has the original single-line black button Kluson tuners.   Has had some minor maintenence repair work performed, the bridge has been reglued and there is some touch up around it that can be seen, see pic.  Also there is a 3-inch top crack that has been repaired near the lower bout, see pic.  Finish is original but has some black overspray showing where the top crack was repaired and also the peghead has some overspray showing.  There are no other cracks.  There is no Oahu decal, but you can clearly see in the last pic the trademark Oahu "snakehead" peghead with the distinctive top ridge.  Anyway, all the repairs are solid and this baby is ready to enjoy for another 62 years!  Really a fun piece.  This model is fretless as you can see and a student painted fret numbers on the fingerboard, you could remove them, but I thought why not keep the nostalgia?  Comes with the original faux alligator chipboard case with blue lining.  Cool, huh?  I used to find these all the time at flea markets and estate sales, but they just don't show up like they once did.  Here's a chance to own a neat old vintage guitar that won't break the bank.  Normal playing wear you would expect of the age, but I think you'll like it!  Shipping is $30 domestic, $85 Canada, $165 International locations.  Payment is by Paypal only, please.  Bid with confidence, my 12th year on eBay, people seem to like my stuff!  Thanks, Jeff
