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.

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