Oahu Jumbo Deluxe Acoustic Guitar, circa 1935
  • Made by Kay
  • X-Braced
  • Nick Lucas Body Style
  • Converted From Hawaiian Lap Style

Product Description

Made by Kay (Chicago) this originally was made as a Hawaiian lap style guitart with a square neck, now converted and in excellent condition. Although the Oahu brand was used on countless low grade guitars, Kay was quite capable of producing instruments of top quality. Just look inside: if you find X-bracing, you have a potentially fantastic sounding instrument. This model, the most common with the X-brace, is a copy of Gibson's Nick Lucas, the 1930 version with the larger L-00 body and 12 frets to-the-body, with the specific-to-the Nick Lucas deeper sides. Top is spruce, back & sides are laminated maple (don't be fooled - there are a whole lot of AMAZING sounding laminated maple guitars.) Condition is excellent, with a pleasantly chunky "V" neck shape, one repaired hairline crack below the bridge. Tone is crisp, full, sweet and very loud!
