c.1940 Oahu Tonemaster w/ Matching Tonemaster Amp Lap Steel - Sold
Exc condition. Maple (possibly Birch), sunburst guitar. All original - tuners, knobs, pickup, cover, etc.
Popular lap steel design, with very cool checkerboard bindings on top and back of body and along fingerboard. These are often seen in versions with metal decorative plate around pickup and control knobs, but this one has a bakelite plate with decorative carved lines that are painted white. Tortoise plastic peghead overlay, with Oahu and Tonemaster logos silk-screened in white. Everything works fine.
Good condition. "Tonemaster" made by Valco. Handle missing. Original blonde tolex is frayed. Original 6" Jensen speaker. Original grill cloth. Back panel has a "push-pull" knob that looks correct for the period, but may be an aftermarket add-on. This push-pull "choke" knob mutes the amp several decibels when pulled out.
As old as it is, and obviously used many times, this amp has a lot of sound and works fine.
So... all in all, this makes a great Lap Steel & original Amp package. Lots of sound with lots of flavor.w/ OHC
