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.

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.
