That will probably be a difficult item to find (not already attached to another Oahu lap steel). Post a photo of what you're looking for and we may be able to offer suggestions on replacements.

Any suggestions on replacing the round fret markers? Find some repros or just white paint?


I found household all-purpose putty fills the holes well.

If you do post it here (in For Sale: Steel Guitars), please post high quality photos of the back, front, and sides. If you need help, you can mail them to me privately and I'll post them for you.

Without seeing actual photos of the instrument, I'd guesstimate between $800 and $1200 USD.

I was lucky enough to see Mr. Roberts performing with Hank Snow on my first visit to the Grand Ole Opry. He was always an inspiration. May he rest in peace.

It's a question of economics. Why build an entirely new part for a specialized instrument that does the same thing as the part you already have plenty of for a more general instrument?

The Fishman Nashville pickup is the standard among professional players. There are many other competing pickups but this is the best.
