50’s Oahu/Valco Solidbody


50’s Oahu/Valco Solidbody in original Arctic White finish! Model seems rare- no other examples could be found for reference. Appears to have been refretted with vintage wire, no (adjustable) truss is visible, but the neck is straight and the action is quite nice, for what we’d normally consider a slide guitar. Neck is a Large “C” profile Chunk! Pickup appears original, although the pots are more recent replacements. Pickguard is possibly original; but it has clearly been modified at one tip where there is a corner missing and a filled screw hole.

-Includes what is likely the original Chip Case
