You are bidding on a 1946 Fender Deluxe Model lap steel. This is a pre serial number example. Pot codes are from the 38th week of 1946. This was probably one of the very first one of this model ever manufactured. There is no serial number.Very crude chiseling of the control cavity took place after the initial routing of the cavity. I have seen this same type of work on other examples, so I am quite sure it is original. Electronics are 100% original. Pickup is not functional. Lindy Fralin does a good job of restoring these pickups. I prefer to keep them as is. Finish and tuners are all orig and in great shape. The knobs are the original Broadcaster type. Worth at least $400.00 themselves. Included is a nice tweed case from around 1956. Obviously not original, but a nice Fender case anyway. There is an area of corrosion on the fret board that can be seen in picture 12. This is an exceptional very early example of the Deluxe Model Fender Steel.
