1930's Oahu Model 50K Slide Lap Steel Guitar Purple Lined Case + Bar + Picks USA

Guitar is in clean condition overall. Comes with original purple lined case and Oahu branded slide bar and 2 Oahu branded metal finger picks as well as a tortoise pick.

Guitar tuner buttons are missing and need to be replaced but you can still tune the guitar with some pliers. There is a crack in the wood on top that may have already been repaired(?) or could just be a surface crack as there does not seem to be any give when pressed. There are also a couple areas that are lightly warped (see side view of soundhole) but neck is straight and finish is in real good condition with some light wear as expected from an instrument this age. Case is in good condition with average wear but latches all work and handle is secure.

You can get a set of tuner buttons cheap or a new set of tuners if desired. Selling as is and as shown.

International buyers are responsible for any taxes, duties, fees etc.

Here's a video demo that I took of this guitar (please note I am not a slide player). I'm a lefty playing this right handed guitar upside down. The guitar is strung as intended for right handed players. I tuned this to DADGAD
