There were at least four major versions of the Eharp, one by Epiphone and three by Valco, using at least three pickup designs. Which one do you have, and what's wrong with the current pickup?

Aloha was a brand, and most (all?) of their steels I've seen were built by Magnatone. There were a bunch of different models bearing the name. If you can post a pic, that would help narrow it down.

Bronson just sold instruments made for them by Rickenbacker, Valco and Kay. To answer the question, though, I've never seen anything other than a 6-string with their name on it.

There are individually adjustable poles for each string. They're below the strings, so you need to stick a straight-blade screwdriver between the holes in the top plate.

These typically sell in the ...

It's not German, and it's not a Valco product. This is absolutely Japanese, most likely from the Guyatone factory as everyone else said. $2-300 is reasonable.

I find that the seat is critical. It needs to be just the right height and have the right amount of cushioning. My back feels a lot better after shows now that I invested in a drum throne.

Yes, Conqueror was made in Japan in the same factory as Guyatone, Teisco, Jedson, Aria, and others.

Guyatone and Teisco were two separate factories. Arias from this period came from a third, Matsum ...

I find that seat height matters a lot, especially if the steel is on my lap (not on its own legs). If it's at the wrong height, after a couple of hours of balancing the steel while keeping one foot on ...

Yup, Valco. It's not an Oahu Tonemaster; this was a brand name used by English Electronics of Lansing, MI on the guitars they sold.

What's the switch on the back? I've never seen that before.

It cuts the volume, along with some of the treble. The 1941 Oahu catalog called it a "touch control", saying it "gives th ...

I can compare Clinesmith's Bigsby pickup to an original Rick pickup, but not Clinesmith's horseshoe pickup. For those two, I agree with Cartwright. The Rick has more cutting power and more pronounced ...

Valco made the later Tonemasters, but both of these pics show earlier Kay-built ones. I don't know which of these logos came first, though.
