1938 Oahu Lap Slide Combo Time Capsule

Asking $1350 Or $1200 Cash and Carry.

EARLY Electric Lap slide, amp, and matching case with a bunch of period sheet music!

All in VG+ condition. Really Sweet OLD lap slide!

Amp does have a replacement modern cord for safety.

I thought I would use this but I must admit I am just an acoustic guy and it has only been played a couple times in my music room since I bought it.

My favorite guitarist from my decades of drumming has a few of these! He is on a David Lindley type skill level on slide. They sound FANTASTIC plugged in.

The amp functions real well but it is a light duty student type.

I would not try to gig on it! :)

Amp is awesome for distortion tones at low volume! I thought I might use it for harmonicas like a preamp. I have seen folks do this and they absolutely scream.

It sure does not appear to have been played much over the decades…

Hope to hear from some slide aficionados
