Superb Oahu Valco 1956 Oahu lap steel
Blonde MOTS

This superb 1956 Oahu - serial #X61291 - was made by Valco. It features the signature National/Supro 3+3 string-through pickup, metal pickup cover (with etched clef motif), black fretboard with OAHU spelled out down the board, and an amphenol jack. There is a small discoloration (cigarette stain?) near the control plate, treble side. And the chrome tuners are new - possibly "vintage" Kluson or Schaller type.  Pots are a bit scratchy - both volume and tone - but the treble is sharp, sustain good, bottom meaty.  Case is in poor shape, though the handle and clasps work.
