Vintage electric lap steel guitar and tube amplifier combo. I am selling these items for 'the old guy down the street' who told me he got these items as a present from his parents in the late 1940's. I have tested both items and they WORK PERFECTLY!!! the lap steel is a 6 string with what seems to be a solid body. it has (1) pickup, a tone and volume control and open back tuning machines.It comes complete with a case and (2) slide bars.The tube amplifier is constructed of wood and has no markings except the speaker says ROLA. it has (3) tubes, marked 6v6gt, 6s17 and 5y3gt. the amp has (2) inputs and a volume control. the amp also has a leather handle and a amp cover. Both items have a 'crackle finish' which may have been a original design, but most likely come from the age of the items. I have tested both items and they both work very well. I tested the amp with both the lap steel and my stratocaster. I tested the lap steel with my own personal amp AND the tube amp in this auction. I put some overdrive my amp when i tested the lap steel and WOW! Please e-mail with any questions or to request additional pictures. Please check my feedback and bid with confidence! Happy Bidding!
